England

A locals' guide to England

"Within touching distance of the West End, yet retaining a vibrant neighbourhood feel, Islington is a smart choice for buyers and tenants."

Daniel Burrell

"Alongside all the restaurants and bars that make Upper Street so popular are the architectural gems that add character to the area."

Nick Batten

"Clissold Park is the perfect place for a day out with the kids - there's animal enclosures, a lovely café and lakes to explore."

Where do England locals go?

The Baring

Long lazy Sundays or a swift ale after a busy day at work, The Baring is an ever popular watering hole that also has a serious Tuesday night quiz!

Salvation in Noodles

Super tasty Vietnamese noodle salads and pho on the borders of Dalston.

The Sampler

The best place to quaff on the finest wines around without having to buy a bottle! Very highbrow.

Bread and Butter

Serving the best breakfasts in Dalston, lovely fresh organic food, amazing juice and great coffee. The tortilla with loads of cheese is a great hangover cure!

Mem & Laz Brasserie

An Islington institution, this Mediterranean restaurant is amazing value!

Ottolenghi

Not great if you're on a budget. However, if you want to push the boat out and want tasty Turkish-inspired food, you're in luck!

69 Colebrooke Row

One of London's best kept secrets. The size of a small living room, but serving the best experimental cocktails around. The bar uses spirits and drinks that it infuses itself in a drinks laboratory and the staff wear lab coats.

The Camden Head

A fantastic boozer in the heart of Camden Passage. Sit out in the beer garden watching the locals mooching around the market stalls.

The Canonbury Tavern

A public house since the early 1700's, The Canonbury Tavern was refurbished in 2009 giving the residents of Islington one of the best pub gardens in the city and a superb roast lunch on a Sunday. Moreover, the beautiful garden offers an escape from chaotic city life.

The Pantry

Specialist eggless cakes for every occasion!

Towpath

I love a weekend walk along Regent's Canal with a glass of rosé from Towpath.

Newington Green Fruit and Vegetables

There isn't a vegetable or a piece of fruit that you cannot buy here. Amazing presentation and CHEAP!

The De Beauvoir Deli Co.

This is a fab little deli with homemade cakes, tonnes of local produce and some really great cheese! There's always people sat outside enjoying a sandwich and a coffee...

Camden Passage

Vintage and antiques shops, Camden Passage oozes character and quirkiness with great places to have a coffee or dine. Oh so pretty and quaint!

Belle époque

Delicious bread and cakes that look too perfect to eat!
