Delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner in French-style interiors. They do a fantastic set menu too, which is a real bargain.

A little taste of Africa. Great ambience, incredible South African Zulu statues and if that doesn't win you over, the all day 2-4-1 cocktails will!

The Blues Kitchen
This American themed restaurant is fantastic! Not only is the food very tasty, but the atmosphere is electric - live music on a Friday and Saturday and distinctive tasting cocktails draw in a big crowd.

Anima e Cuore
From the outside, Anima e Cuore looks like a gelateria and café, but this teeny tiny restaurant serves amazing Italian food at a very reasonable price. The menu is read by the waiters and changed daily. It books up very fast and it's BYOB!

"South Kentish tube station was closed for a power cut in 1924, but when power was restored, so few passengers used the station, that it was decided to not bother re-opening it."
