Where do Harlesden and surrounding areas locals go?

Yo Yo Kitchen

The best sushi takeaway in Ealing!


'Paradise By Way of Kensal Green', to give it's full name, is a British restaurant, bar and club all rolled into one. Don't miss out on the burger!


Delicious wood fired takeaway pizzas. They also have a delivery service.

The Alice House

Good bar and great cocktails - this place has 'date night' written all over it!

The Lexi Cinema

A great Indie cinema run by volunteers showing mainstream films and live opera. All their proceeds go to charity too.

Gladstone Park

My favourite park to jog around, as the hills can be very challenging!

La Boutique Secret

In the heart of West Hampstead, you can indulge yourself in fantastic clothes at amazing prices! It's always busy and there are lovely ladies to help you.

Small & Beautiful

Cheap and cheerful. Delicious continental menu that barely dents the wallet. Great mussels and pizza. Bonus points for also doing takeaway!


Amazing gourmet burgers from tame lemon and herb to those that like the heat on full blast! All meals are super reasonable in price, with fries and a drink included.

The Masons Arms

A fantastic pub with an amazing garden, Sunday roasts, summer barbecues, DJs, quizzes and comedy nights. A lovely community feel.

The Queensbury

This quirky restaurant serves American-style food. On Tuesdays, you can get a burger and a beer for £12 and every other Sunday they have a live jazz night.

Hanger Hill Park

A great day out in the sun and a there's big pitch and putt course too!

The Wet Fish Cafe

One of the most highly recommended restaurants in West Hampstead - comfort food and jazz.

The Aeronaut

Arguably one of Ealing borough's most unique venues. Circus themed, they have circus performances on Friday and Saturday evenings and they even have their own microbrewery onsite. Definitely one of the best beer gardens in London and a lively, fun place to go for a few drinks after a long week!

Queen's Park Farmers' Market

In the grounds of Salusbury Primary School, great on Sundays for breakfast or lunch. Lots of fresh produce and a great mix of delicious food options.
