Off the beaten track. Amazing dim sum and very good value for money.

69 Colebrooke Row

69 Colebrooke Row

One of London's best kept secrets. The size of a small living room, but serving the best experimental cocktails around. The bar uses spirits and drinks that it infuses itself in a drinks laboratory and the staff wear lab coats.

The Betjeman Arms

The Betjeman Arms

The only British Pub located within the Grade I Listed building underneath the clock tower and arches at St Pancras International station. Elegant dining room, heritage features, charming staff and stunning British pub classics menu. This is now my family's new favourite Sunday Lunch local.

The Lord Stanley

The Lord Stanley

Just off Camden Road, this pub does the best sausage and mash!

This restaurant provides the best food, near and far, in the Islington/Holloway area. Amazing cocktails, a well chosen wine card and an extraordinarily friendly and expert service that guarantees a complete dining experience. Alcedo will never disappoint!

Bumblebee Natural Foods shops on Brecknock Road...you have to add them to your list, they are amazing. Great produce over three shops and the best bread ever!!

The Canonbury Tavern

The Canonbury Tavern

A public house since the early 1700's, The Canonbury Tavern was refurbished in 2009 giving the residents of Islington one of the best pub gardens in the city and a superb roast lunch on a Sunday. Moreover, the beautiful garden offers an escape from chaotic city life.

The Wilmington

Just down the road from Sadler's Wells Theatre, this exceptional gastro pub is packed before a show - and rightly so.

"The restaurant Granita on Upper Street became well known as the place where Tony Blair and Gordon Brown met to decide who was to become Labour party leader after the death of John Smith in 1994."

Granary Square has made King's Cross unrecognisable!

Caledonian Road quote

Claire O'Donnell

Alongside all the restaurants and bars that make Upper Street so popular are the architectural gems that add character to the area.

Nick Batten

I love walking down Upper Street and choosing where to go for breakfast, lunch and dinner - the choice is amazing!

About Caledonian Road

The Caledonian Road, in Islington, North London is a road, about one and half miles long, running north-south from Camden Road near the junction with Holloway Road to Pentonville Road in the south. It is often known colloquially as the "Cally" and forms the entirety of the A5203. The street is mostly residential from Camden Road until Caledonian Road tube station. There are many new residential developments around the station including student accommodation. The road crosses Thornhill Bridge over the Regents Canal and south of here are more trendy shops and restaurants that have appeared in recent years because of the King's Cross developments. The road ends at Pentonville Road near King's Cross railway station and the border of Camden.
