"I can't think of a place with better transport links - you can be at Bond Street in only 13 minutes!"

What is your favourite place?

Where do Dollis Hill locals go?

O'Farrell's

The best butchers in North West London. All the meat is free range and they sell the best steak you'll ever taste!

Gladstone Park

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

Deli Beira

Best custard tarts outside of Lisbon! This deli sells products from Portugal, Spain and Brazil, too.

Willesden Salvage

Everything from fireplaces to vintage travel trunks, amazing antiques to helping you tell the time...

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.

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 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.

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.

Sanzio

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

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!

Oxbridge Tuition

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

The Lexi Cinema

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

Small & Beautiful

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

The Tricycle

A fantastic theatre away from the West End showing outstanding original productions. Well worth a visit. Also has a cinema and a bar.

The Black Lion

A lovely period pub, restaurant and guesthouse. Beautiful décor and very friendly.

"Firstly, Gladstone Park offers much-needed relief from the stresses of Central London. Getting home (in approx. 18 mins) on the tube and taking a walk up on the hills keeps me balanced in mind, body and spirit. It's a proper neighbourhood. We look out for each other. If someone's dog is locked out, we take him/her back home. Last week, my son was visiting, stood on the front balcony and my neighbour rushed out wanting ... more

"Dollis Hill is a quiet, residential but vibrant area with cafes, pubs and restaurants that haven't been spoilt and retain their old-day charm and simplicity. There is also Gladstone Park that is a hidden gem and one of the largest parks in the area, with amazing outdoor sports facilities, pond, trails and a café."

"Dollis Hill is a friendly and safe neighbourhood with a large park with sports groups, playing fields, cafes and a beautiful walled rose garden. The little high street near Dollis Hill Station has all you need (apart from a butchers) - greengrocer, pharmacy, Portuguese restaurant, newsagent, off-licence, convenience store and garage. A small bit of council investment could make a big difference, as it has a lovely, almost vill... more
