Where do Cricklewood locals go?

Mapesbury Dell

A hidden gem located in between the houses of the Mapesbury Estate, which was formed by the local community. It's a great place to take the kids or just enjoy the tranquillity. Even some of the locals don't know about it!

Pizaza

Come along and try a deep pan margherita pizza -they're amazing!

SoYo

Kosher restaurant serving a fantastic range of vegetarian and vegan dishes.

Oxbridge Tuition

A constant source of highly intelligent Oxford and Cambridge graduates willing to tutor for far less than the going rate.

The Cedar

The Cedar, West End Lane was voted the best takeaway restaurant in the UK in 2014 by Hungry House!

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.

The Queensbury

Situated right by Willesden Green Underground Station, a handily located local for a casual drink or a good meal. A great place to watch sports events, although it does fill up easily. It also hosts weekly jazz sessions.

Pita

One of the best chicken and lamb shawarmas in Golders Green and probably the most popular lunch takeaway in the whole area!

Gladstone Park

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

Sparkle O'Hara

A fabulous vintage and new clothes store run by a lovely lady, selling beautiful jewellery too. Everything is sold at an amazing price!

The Alice House

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

Habaneros

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.

Karmarama Café

Situated in Gladstone Park, this café serves amazing breakfasts, great coffee and baked treats straight from the oven, including mouth-watering cakes. It's open from Friday to Sunday.

Sanzio

Great food and atmosphere. I love this cute little Italian restaurant.

Small & Beautiful

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

  1. About Cricklewood

    Cricklewood is a district of North London whose northeastern part is in the London Borough of Barnet, western part is the London Borough of Brent and southeastern part is in London Borough of Camden. There was a small settlement at the junction of Cricklewood Lane and the Edgware Road by 1294, which by 1321 was being called Cricklewood. By the 1750s the Crown (rebuilt in 1889), was providing for coach travellers and by the 1800s it had a handful of cottages and Cricklewood House as neighbours, and was known for its “pleasure gardens”. By the 1860s there were a number of substantial villas along the Edgware Road starting with Rockhall Lodge and culminating in Rockhall Terrace. Cricklewood was the setting of The Goodies and Minder.
