Where do E14 locals go?

Chrisp Street Market

Poplar's vibrant pedestrianised market and one of a few places in London where you can buy a baguette and then a mop in under a minute!

Billingsgate Market

If you're cooking up a seafood dinner, this is the place to go to pick up high-quality and reasonably priced fish - way better than the supermarket.

One Canada Square

A lovely place for elegant drinks and dinner or after-work drinks. Food served throughout the day and with a range of deals too.

Sticks'n'Sushi

A great place to go if you are a fan of contemporary Japanese cuisine. Try the "Beef tataki" with smoked cheese, chives and soy roasted almonds - it's amazing and they also offer a very wide selection of premium sake.

Terrace Bar at Wahaca

Mouthwatering Mexican market food in the centre of Canary Wharf. In addition to the restaurant, there's also a pop-up in Canada Square so you can devour a burrito and enjoy the sunshine in the park! Try the frijoles & tortilla and salted caramel ice cream - you won't regret it!

Goldstar Dry Cleaners

The masters of getting any stain out and they have always got a trick or two up their sleeve to get them out. 5 shirts for £7.50 is a bargain - and they will even do same day cleaning for the same price!

The Attic

Amazing views of Canary Wharf and great for evening cocktails on the 48th floor of Pan Peninsula - a stunning place that will impress someone on a first date! The Pornstar Martinis are amazing too!

Noodle Street

A cracking little Chinese restaurant on a random street, tucked away amongst a number of residential blocks. Great food and it's always full. Good prices too and if you can't be bothered to leave the house, they deliver!

Canary Wharf shopping

Shop 'til you drop in the two underground shopping malls. Indulge in high-end brands and boutiques and spend that hard-earned cash in style.

Gaucho

The best steak house and part of an upmarket chain. Sumptuous décor, delicious cocktails and perfectly cooked steak that you can choose from a board carried by the waiter.

The Gun

A lovely riverside tavern hidden on the east side of the Isle with excellent food. The best place for a Sunday roast in East London and a good selection of real ales too.

Docklands Nails

Friendly, efficient and great value!

The Narrow

A great gastropub on Narrow Street in Limehouse with fabulous food and a lovely atmosphere. The terrace has superb views of the Thames and you can go for a stroll around picturesque Limehouse Basin afterwards to walk off all the calories consumed!

Shades of Green

In The Quarterdeck, just along Westferry Road, Shades of Green is owned by Bob who is a great bloke. He loves a chat about football and in fact, if you look closely through the right hand window, you can see him in action snipping away!

Canada Square Park

Whether it's a music event, car exhibition or watching a top sporting match on one of the big screens, sit back and grab a drink in the heart of Canary Wharf.

"We're a minute from the river, and love to walk along it. If we walk a little further we can get to Greenwich via one of London's secret gems - the Greenwich got tunnel. Mudchute is great - a little bit of London, a little bit of suburbia."

"I love Poplar because it a very clean and quite area, I feel safe, whereas other areas seem a bit scary and dark and don't seem so safe, I also love my area because there are parks where children's can go and play and no one needs to be worried about them and I've been safely living in Poplar for 18 years."

Let us know

"In 1699, Parliament decreed that Billingsgate Market would be a free and open market for all types of fish...except for eels! Eels were only to be sold by the Dutch fishermen on the Thames, a nod of gratitude to them as they helped to feed people during the Great Fire of London."
