Where do Limehouse locals go?

Goldstar Dry Cleaners

The masters of getting any stain out and they have always got a trick or two up their sleeve to get them out. 5 shirts for £7.50 is a bargain - and they will even do same day cleaning for the same price!

Docklands Nails

Friendly, efficient and great value!

The Narrow

A great gastropub on Narrow Street in Limehouse with fabulous food and a lovely atmosphere. The terrace has superb views of the Thames and you can go for a stroll around picturesque Limehouse Basin afterwards to walk off all the calories consumed!

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!

Efes

The best Turkish food for an excellent price.

Gaucho

The best steak house and part of an upmarket chain. Sumptuous décor, delicious cocktails and perfectly cooked steak that you can choose from a board carried by the waiter.

One Canada Square

A lovely place for elegant drinks and dinner or after-work drinks. Food served throughout the day and with a range of deals too.

Museum of London Docklands

The Museum of London Docklands is set within a nineteenth century sugar, rum and coffee warehouse! It tells visitors all about the history of London Docklands and trade with the rest of the world.

Cineworld

The Cineworld at West India Quay is moments from bars and restaurants, so grab a drink and food before and after the showings.

Boisdale

This is a first class restaurant and bar. Where else can you hear jazz, blues and amazing tribute acts every night of the week without travelling to the West End?!

Chrisp Street Market

Poplar's vibrant pedestrianised market and one of a few places in London where you can buy a baguette and then a mop in under a minute!

Sticks'n'Sushi

A great place to go if you are a fan of contemporary Japanese cuisine. Try the "Beef tataki" with smoked cheese, chives and soy roasted almonds - it's amazing and they also offer a very wide selection of premium sake.

The Breakfast Club

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

Terrace Bar at Wahaca

Mouthwatering Mexican market food in the centre of Canary Wharf. In addition to the restaurant, there's also a pop-up in Canada Square so you can devour a burrito and enjoy the sunshine in the park! Try the frijoles & tortilla and salted caramel ice cream - you won't regret it!

Canada Square Park

Whether it's a music event, car exhibition or watching a top sporting match on one of the big screens, sit back and grab a drink in the heart of Canary Wharf.

"The Grapes pub, established in 1583, has been the scene of Walter Raleigh setting off on a voyage, managed to survive through the Blitz and the Dockland regeneration. It now offers fantastic views along the river and brags Sir Ian McKellan as one of its owners."

  1. About Limehouse

    Limehouse is a place in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. It is on the northern bank of the River Thames opposite Rotherhithe and between Ratcliff to the west and Millwall to the east. Limehouse is sometimes thought by newcomers to be centred on Narrow Street and the Limehouse Basin, but it is in fact centred on Limehouse Town Hall in Commercial Road. It stretches from Limehouse Basin in the west to the edge of the former Chinatown in Pennyfields in the east; and from the Thames in the south to the Victory Bridge at the junction of Ben Jonson Road and Rhodeswell Road in the north. The area gives its name to Limehouse Reach, a section of the Thames which runs from Shadwell, through Ratcliff and then Limehouse and on to Millwall. Further to the southwest, Narrow Street, Limehouse's historic spine, which runs along the back of the Thames wharves, boasts one of the few surviving early Georgian terraces in London.
