Where do London Fields locals go?

Hackney Picturehouse

A great cinema that shows a lot of special screenings and q&a sessions, as well as popular Hollywood films.

London Fields Lido

Perfect for a fun day out, especially in the summer, this outdoor pool in Hackney's London Fields is one of London's last remaining lidos. It is open all year round and is, of course, heated. Why not grab lunch from either one of their two cafes after an exciting dip?!

Patty & Bun

The best burgers in London under London Fields railway arches!


I always make a quick pit stop at this coffee van on the Narrow Way in the morning.

Café Health

A lovely little Caribbean restaurant on Mare Street in East London. They offer the best jerk chicken along with other Caribbean dishes.

Broadway Market

Broadway Market is the exact place to go to experience the best of what east London has to offer, with its fantastic range of food stalls, restaurants, shops and pubs! If you go in the summer, be sure to grab a beer and head over to London Fields, where the standard BBQ doesn't exist.

The Advisory

The best burger in Hackney and delicious sides too!

Hackney Fresh

I often pop in to this fruit and veg shop for their fresh produce and a coffee. Very handy!


This place is great for brunches and lunches. They have a cabaret place downstairs so you really could stay all day if you wanted to!

Pub on the Park

On the border of London Fields, its a fantastic pub with a big outdoor area and reasonable drink prices too.

Oval Space

A club based off Hackney Road where international DJs and live acts play regularly. It also has terrace parties in the summer.

Brew for Two at St John's

This delightful café in the garden of St John-at-Hackney Church is great for an al fresco lunch when the weather is kind! Homemade burgers, cakes, sweet & sour crepes and Monmouth coffee!!!

Chesham Arms

A revival of an old local boozer, residents fought hard to prevent this building being turned into flats and won after it was granted to be an 'asset of community value'!


Excellent homemade noodles, ramen and lots more. It's got a well-stocked bar too!

The Bonneville

Located in Lower Clapton, The Bonneville is a quirky low-lit brasserie with a French-inspired menu and cocktails. Its décor is striking and cocktails speak for themselves. It is a must visit if you are a foody!

  1. About London Fields

    London Fields is a park and the name of an area of London, situated in the eastern borough of Hackney. The park itself was first recorded in 1540. At this time it was common ground and was used by drovers to pasture their livestock before taking them to market in London. London Fields is just over 31 acres (13 ha) in extent. It is 4.2 miles (6.8 km) north-east of Charing Cross. London Fields sports a cricket pitch, lido, grass areas, a small BMX track, tennis courts, a table tennis table and two children's play areas. A much-used cycle path runs from the Pub on the Park to Broadway Market.
