Where do Wenlock Basin locals go?

Look Mum No Hands

A great concept for anyone who loves cycling. Full-time mechanics working upstairs that can help with flat tyres and answer any questions about bikes, as well as a great outdoor area to sit and bask in the sun with a coffee and food.

69 Colebrooke Row

One of London's best kept secrets. The size of a small living room, but serving the best experimental cocktails around. The bar uses spirits and drinks that it infuses itself in a drinks laboratory and the staff wear lab coats.

Frederick's

Great wine, superb food and awesome al fresco dining in their garden during the warmer months.

New Culture Revolution

Off the beaten track. Amazing dim sum and very good value for money.

Nightjar

The most sophistication you can find between two kebab shops on a roundabout. A speakeasy-style cocktail bar underneath the adjacent shops, serving the best cocktail creations in town.

Ozone Coffee Roasters

Proper coffee in warehouse-style surroundings and food too, served from breakfast through to dinner.

The Baring

Long lazy Sundays or a swift ale after a busy day at work, The Baring is an ever popular watering hole that also has a serious Tuesday night quiz!

Mem & Laz Brasserie

An Islington institution, this Mediterranean restaurant is amazing value!

The Camden Head

A fantastic boozer in the heart of Camden Passage. Sit out in the beer garden watching the locals mooching around the market stalls.

Camden Passage

Vintage and antiques shops, Camden Passage oozes character and quirkiness with great places to have a coffee or dine. Oh so pretty and quaint!

Honest Burgers

The Honest Burger cocktails are absolutely fantastic and the staff are exceptionally friendly too!

Ottolenghi

Not great if you're on a budget. However, if you want to push the boat out and want tasty Turkish-inspired food, you're in luck!

The Slaughtered Lamb

Great atmosphere, live bands, excellent wine! Sometimes you see the cast of Eastenders and Ed Sheeran in here.

Trapeze

Quirky interiors and crazy cocktails, this restaurant-cum-club is great for a number of different occasions.

J & A Café

The best Irish fry up with real Irish soda bread and Ballymaloe relish!

"The first canned food was patented by a merchant in Hoxton called Peter Durand in 1810. Sadly the invention of the can opener was still fifty years away and they had to be opened by a hammer!"
