Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park

The perfect place to play outdoor games with kids or friends, have a romantic picnic or for a good cardio workout - amazing scenery of both nature and modern architecture.

The Pie Crust Cafe

A family business, absolutely delicious Thai food and great prices.


Fantastic addition to the multitude of independent stores and restaurants in E20, an area that is fast becoming the snazziest place in East London. You won't regret dropping in for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner.


A fashionable pub serving craft beers and food from breakfast through to dinner.

Stoney Hill

Looking for authentic Caribbean cuisine? Stoney Hill offers fresh carnival food whether you're looking for a takeaway or a quiet, intimate restaurant setting. Only 10 minutes walk from Westfield Stratford!

Sawmill Cafe

Great cakes and coffee.

The ArcelorMittal Orbit

Traditional fish and chips and authentic pizza served in this Italian family-run takeaway.

Golden Grove

Really convenient for work and the service is great too!


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!

London Aquatics Centre

London Aquatics Centre is the most technologically advanced and stunning swimming facility in the world and part of the 2012 London Olympic legacy.

ArcelorMittal Orbit Slide

Pound for pound the best Caribbean food in the area and great value for money!

Corner Kitchen

Fantastic family orientated cafe serving unique stone baked pizzas, homemade cakes and featuring a basement playground with dedicated activities throughout the week for under 5's. Great place to take babies and toddlers.
