The only place in London to do a bacon doughnut... They also have amazing chicken and lunchtime deals in the week!

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!

The Breakfast Club

The Breakfast Club

Always busy, with great breakfasts throughout the day, as well as lunch and dinner menus.

Pho House

Pho House

After trying nearly all of the Vietnamese restaurants on Kingsland Road, this is by far the best. The setting is cool with graffiti style art on the walls and the service is excellent compared to other places on the same road. Complimentary tea and watermelon at the end is exactly what is needed after trying the extensive menu of pho, noodles, summer rolls and fresh fish.

Clutch

Clutch

An incredible restaurant in east London. Bright yellow and tiny in size, it serves the best fried chicken with American-style sides, including the dill and pomegranate slaw, which is unreal! Booking is recommended...

Towpath

Towpath

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

Why not explore the nearby areas of De Beauvoir Town, Canonbury, Hoxton, Newington Green, Dalston, Islington, Highbury, Caledonian Road, Shoreditch and Clerkenwell

"27 Canonbury Square became the residence of famous novelist George Orwell after bombing forced him out of his home in St John's Wood in 1944."

Canonbury and Islington are renowned for their beautiful Regency architecture that attracts so many of the local residents.

Daniel Burrell

The arrival of the London Overground in Haggerston has really opened up this area for commuters.

England quote

Alexandra Haywood

The street art on this wall is constantly changing, which makes for a beautiful and rousing walk to work every morning. Expect the unexpected on Great Eastern Street!
