Possibly the largest bakery in the universe! They also serve hot falafel, pizza, pasta and sushi. Lots of room for sitting inside and out and the parking is relatively good too.

Exceptional Persian food, flavourful and generous portions. The staff are always friendly and hospitable.



Pricey, but worth every penny. The customer service is second to none and it's a very romantic atmosphere - not rowdy and the food is delicious. They even make the serving bowls out of noodles so you can eat them too!

Fantastic smoothies, milkshakes and sushi. It's Kosher too!



A family-run business that has been there for 25+ years. They frame absolutely anything and are well priced, professional and very courteous. Always looking for a deal too!



Really nice and stylish Italian restaurant and bar, which is open 'til late on weekends.

I really like this traditional pub - the classic food menu is very reasonably priced compared to other pubs in London and the food is great!
