Where do E1W locals go?

Pollyanna Training Theatre

Wonderful performance and arts activities for children.

Smith's Brasserie

A beautiful and high-quality restaurant serving the best fish meals in London.

The Captain Kidd

Serving organic beer to sip on a sunny London day and affording a garden directly overlooking the Thames. Many a pirate fantasy has been regaled in this public house.


Amazing coffee house with such good coffee and lunchtime food. Great smoothies too!

Il Bordello

A family-run Italian with turbot bigger than my face! Their service is outstanding and one that we can all learn from and appreciate the lack of nowadays.

St Katharine Docks

Independent restaurants for dinner after a quick drink at The Dickens Inn or take a twilight stroll alongside the yachts.


The best Turkish food for an excellent price.

Maltby Street Market

A wide variety of foods from around the world...

The SkyLounge

At the top of the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel near Tower Bridge, this sophisticated bar has amazing views!

Southwark Park

Between Canada Water and Old Kent Road, Southwark Park is a peaceful spot with a café and an art gallery.

The Culpeper

A great brunch menu on a Saturday and the service is excellent. The full English and the anchovy butter is a nice touch.

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!

The View From the Shard

A really nice afternoon out if you are new to London, have visitors or just want something to do one day. Amazing uninterrupted views over London and on a clear day you can see for over 30 miles!

Aqua Shard

Not a bad way to start your day with breakfast at the Shard!

Ting at the Shangri-La

On the 35th floor of the Shard, Ting delivers the astonishing views that you would expect. What I didn't expect was the incredible food that was pretty good value for money - £55 for four mouth-watering courses and the prettiest dessert I've ever seen!

"The Prospect of Whitby claims to be the oldest surviving riverside tavern with a lineage back to the early sixteenth century, despite the building itself burning down in a nineteenth century fire. A refreshing spot for people visiting pirates hanging at Execution Dock, famous artists such as Whistler and Turner painted views from the tavern."
