Where do EC1R locals go?

Kerbisher & Malt

Sustainable and stylish fish and chips that taste fantastic!

Exmouth Market

Amazing fresh food for all tastes. Charming, especially at night. A great place to relax in the sun.

Bourne and Hollingsworth

You may have to book really far in advance, but the brunch with bottomless cocktails is definitely worth the wait! Make sure you try the French toast with clotted cream, berries and honey...

Terroni of Clerkenwell

Terroni's on Clerkenwell Road is a charming traditional Italian café and food store offering all the delights of the old country. There is nothing better than an afternoon cappuccino with a delicious pistachio cream filled cannoli!

The Wilmington

Just down the road from Sadler's Wells Theatre, this exceptional gastro pub is packed before a show - and rightly so.

Sushi Tetsu

Sushi Tetsu is a fantastic and very personable sushi restaurant tucked down a small passageway in Clerkenwell. It serves some of the best sushi in London.

Foxlow

Amazing food! The service is fantastic and the steak and salmon are out of this world...

Sports Bar & Grill, Farringdon

Every sport on multiple wide screens and great burgers. The champagne cocktails are to die for!

The Slaughtered Lamb

Great atmosphere, live bands, excellent wine! Sometimes you see the cast of Eastenders and Ed Sheeran in here.

J & A Café

The best Irish fry up with real Irish soda bread and Ballymaloe relish!

Ibérica Farringdon

A great spot for tapas right by Farringdon Station, with good value, super tasty food and a buzzy atmosphere.

Look Mum No Hands

A great concept for anyone who loves cycling. Full-time mechanics working upstairs that can help with flat tyres and answer any questions about bikes, as well as a great outdoor area to sit and bask in the sun with a coffee and food.

The Modern Pantry

Great brunch/lunch spot and really fresh food. Worth booking as people come especially to Clerkenwell to eat here.

Frederick's

Great wine, superb food and awesome al fresco dining in their garden during the warmer months.

New Culture Revolution

Off the beaten track. Amazing dim sum and very good value for money.
