Where do Stepney locals go?


The best Turkish food for an excellent price.

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!

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!

Tredegar Square

Beautiful green space in zone 2.

Docklands Nails

Friendly, efficient and great value!

The Palm Tree

A local drinking institution that retains its traditional decor - a proper East End boozer with plenty of character in Millennium Park.

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!

York Hall Leisure Centre

Famous gym, spa and boxing venue!

Pollyanna Training Theatre

Wonderful performance and arts activities for children.

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.

Pavilion Café

A great place to grab a coffee, freshly prepared snacks or cake, while overlooking one of Victoria Park's lakes.


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.


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

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.

E. Pellicci

A local family run institution where you always feel welcome! This greasy spoon café is a proper traditional place with a buzzing atmosphere.
