A lovely riverside tavern hidden on the east side of the Isle with excellent food. The best place for a Sunday roast in East London and a good selection of real ales too.

BOKAN

BOKAN

The most elegant place to visit within Canary Wharf, offering a plethora of choice from its wonderful menu is undoubtedly Bokan. This popular restaurant and bar situated over three floors within Marsh wall, offers diners scenic and stunning views of the capital placing it up there as a place to visit for a special occasion or a treat. The sirloin steak, creamy mashed potato, the 'Luna' cocktail, the breath-taking views and the exceptional service make Bokan a go to restaurant to visit if you are ever in the Canary Wharf area. Can hands down say this is the place where they serve the BEST steak in London!! **Top tip - If you book a seat for the restaurant, do ask for one by the window and try to get your table just in time for the sunset so you can enjoy stunning views of the capital whilst further enjoying a gorgeously prepared meal.

In The Quarterdeck, just along Westferry Road, Shades of Green is owned by Bob who is a great bloke. He loves a chat about football and in fact, if you look closely through the right hand window, you can see him in action snipping away!

Amazing Turkish pastries and much more! It's the perfect spot for breakfast or lunch, with lovely views as well.

Mudchute Park and Farm

An excellent activity for children and adults alike. The farm has a host of animals that you can feed and the park is an oasis of calm just moments from the businesses in Canary Wharf. You can also book horse riding lessons at the stables, admire the allotments or enjoy a freshly cooked breakfast at the farm kitchen.

Noodle Street

A cracking little Chinese restaurant on a random street, tucked away amongst a number of residential blocks. Great food and it's always full. Good prices too and if you can't be bothered to leave the house, they deliver!

The Breakfast Club

Delicious breakfasts throughout the day. An excellent place to meet up with friends at the weekend.

"Mudchute owes its name to the mud that was pumped out of Millwall Dock and dumped in the area."

Canary Wharf's exclusive developments look stunning when reflected in the docks below.

What locals say about Isle Of Dogs

  1. We're a minute from the river, and love to walk along it. If we walk a little further we can get to Greenwich via one of London's secret gems - the Greenwich got tunnel. Mudchute is great - a little bit of London, a little bit of suburbia.

About Isle Of Dogs

The Isle of Dogs is a former island in the East End of London that is bounded on three sides (east, south and west) by one of the largest meanders in the River Thames. The urbanisation of the Isle of Dogs took place in the 19th century following the construction of the West India Docks, which opened in 1802. The south of the isle, opposite Greenwich, was once known as North Greenwich, now applied to the area around the Millennium Dome on the Greenwich Peninsula. The Isle of Dogs is now best known as the location of the prestigious Canary Wharf office complex.
