Where do Leytonstone locals go?

The Olive

The Olive

Excellent Mediterranean Restaurant right near Leytonstone tube station in Bushwood Area. Atmos and cuisine every bit as fine as Upper Street at much better prices. Top haunt.

Le Petit Corner

Le Petit Corner

Le Petit Corner is my absolute fave café in the Bushwood end of Leytonstone. It's Bugaboo central, but the kids can play downstairs, so upstairs is chilled and they have a secluded garden. Top toasties and apple tart and just started doing select gourmet food evenings, perfect for date night!

All You Read is Love

The best oven-fired pizzas. My partner lives for the Iskender from the Turkish section of the menu.

The Red Lion

Awesome pub with a beer garden, a great vibe, great people and a DJ on Friday and Saturday nights. It's also very close to Leytonstone Underground Station.

Steaks are incredible. Ex gaucho chefs!

Little Saigon

Funky vibe, Shoreditch-y look with in house tuk tuk. Serves excellent soft shell crab and the noodles are fabulous.

KeraSpice

KeraSpice

Love the coconut-infused southern Indian flavours. Friendliest service and the mixed grills and Dosas are to die for.

The Luna Lounge

The Luna Lounge

This music venue hosts live music nights on two levels. Love the summer with the doors open, view of the church and gorgeous live jazz. Also they do rock and blues, and open mic nights. But for me, to have a cracking jazz venue minutes from my front door is the best.

The Birds

The Birds

Amazing Sunday Roasts. Cool pub based on Alfred Hitchcock - Leytonstone's most famous son. Set right in heart of Bushwood Area. Great crowd.

Mora

Mora

Authentic Sardinian food. The perfect hidden restaurant - although it recently got 5 stars and a whole page in The Evening Standard so now everyone knows about it!

Theatre of Wine

Theatre of Wine

Their weekly wine tasting evenings - really relaxed, social events and so informative. Great craft beers too.

Cafe du Metro

Cafe du Metro

Fresh pastries and amazing cakes, as well as great customer service.

North Star

North Star

Situated in Leytonstone Village near Bushwood, this pub has a food menu with a Thai twist and a beer garden out the back.

Why not explore the nearby areas of Leyton, Maryland, Forest Gate, Aldersbrook, Wanstead, Stratford, Upton, Manor Park, Plashet and Plaistow

"In 1981, four boys found what they thought were bear prints in the snow on Hackney Marshes. After raising the alarm, the police came to scour the area but no 'beast' was found. To this day, we still do not know if the animal was real or if it was an elaborate hoax."

Perfect for commuters, Leytonstone is only five stops on the Central line from London Liverpool Street.

The continued regeneration of the East of London since the Olympic games make Stratford a clever choice for homeowners wanting to purchase in the right spot, at the right time...

Stratford has become a shopping destination after the construction of the Westfield shopping centre.

What locals say about Leytonstone

  1. I love the vibe and general community spirit in Leytonstone.

  2. So many of my mates now moving to Leytonstone in East London. Artistic crowd, very friendly neighbourhood, Victorian houses and so near to Westfield Stratford make it an awesome location.

  3. Leytonstone is a leafy area dominated by beautiful Victorian houses benefiting from large front and back gardens. Epping Forest with its lakes is within walking distance. Commuting to Central London is quick by Central Line - it takes about 12 minutes to get to Liverpool Street. Cycling via Canal Routes to The City takes 30 minutes. Westfield Stratford with variety of shops, bars and restaurants is only 5 minutes away by Central Line. It is a quiet and peaceful area with still a lot of potential.

  4. Leytonstone's central location is ideal for travel with tube /buses or to the hospital. We also have really a good brand new cinema opened, with 8 new screens and also senior citizens day for £3.00. a great location, also nurseries, good shops and brilliant shopping with Westfield on our doorstep. Also local GP 50 yards away from our house. What more can we want!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. I've lived in Leytonstone for the past 5 years and it is such a great area, close enough to town to get in easily but quiet too, nice big properties and they are cheap too.

About Leytonstone

Leytonstone is an area of east London and part of the London Borough of Waltham Forest. It is a suburban area located seven miles north east of Charing Cross. It borders Walthamstow to the northwest, Wanstead (in the London Borough of Redbridge) to the north, Leyton to the south, and Forest Gate (in the London Borough of Newham) to the east. The main thoroughfare in Leytonstone, High Road Leytonstone, which runs the length of Leytonstone to Stratford is an ancient pathway dating to pre-Roman times. Roman archaeological features have been found in the area. The name Leytonstone — in early documents Leyton-Atte-Stone — may derive from the large stone standing at the junction of Hollybush Hill and New Wanstead; in the 18th-century an obelisk was mounted on top of it, and it has been claimed that it is the remains of a Roman milestone. Leytonstone tube station is on the Central Line of the London Underground and Leytonstone High Road is a London Overground railway station.
