Great locally produced food. Look out for TTaste street food serving freshly made gyoza (Chinese dumplings) served with TTaste homemade chilli oil.

Fantastic quiz night on Tuesdays, music, really old feel pub, hasn't been gentrified. Very friendly, very low staff turnover which is a good sign.

A small and friendly wine shop. They even sell wine from a barrel if you bring your own bottle to fill up.

My absolute fave hang out is this uber cool independent bookshop, café and bar run by a lovely Danish pair in Bushwood, Leytonstone. They hold great Scratch Nights for up and coming artists. Real unique personality to it - comedy, magic, music gigs and book launches. Fab cocktails and coffee too. In the daytime, it's the perfect place to buy or just chill with a book.

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

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!

Enough to brighten any overcast day... Head over to this warehouse for a sensory overload. A crazy feast of colours with store signs and lights, it's a truly hipster place!

A beautifully simple place with beers brewed on site. A lovely laid back feel with the occasional live band playing!

"Vinegar Alley behind Saint Mary's Church, Walthamstow is so called because local people used vinegar to sanitise the plague pits that were dug around here."

Living in Repton park a gated development in Woodford green has many highlights. Beautiful green surroundings. Very tranquil area. Benefit from the gym at outdoor step and lovely green grass areas for our kids. Not to over populated so very peaceful. Big high ceiling homes which have a lovely homely feel. Feels like a safe community spirit. Close to local shops too. True what we were told when we first saw a place here that once we live in this area we won't want to leave and it's true we don't.
