Don’t immediately write it off because of its location. This is hands down one of my favourite finds since being in this city, partially because I am totally biased to anything in East. A mini paradise of mismatched vintage furniture, low hanging light bulbs and an annex filled with quirky trinkets. Incredibly popular for its sunday roasts, this is also one of the best happy hour locations serving drinks from £3. Where I spent my 2nd Christmas getting drunk and playing jenga (yes, it is open Christmas Day), and lounged about in summer. The perfect location for any occasion.
“I’ll take a jumper and latte”.
As easy position to find yourself in when visiting this neighbourhood hangout. Menswear, womenswear and homeware with barista-style coffee and inspiring events in art, music and design is AIDA rolled into a rose-coloured dream. If the rose lattes weren’t enough to get you in, the boutique clothing will be.
Most famous for it’s over whelming flowers that scale the whole building (and also cost almost £250,000 a year to upkeep!), this pub is one of the history hot spots for British politicians. Claiming to be the first London put to serve Thai food, this was also a regular spot for Churchill’s family members hence the name it has been given. Not only a must see on a sunny day, this pub transforms into a Christmas wonderland every year when it is covered in lights and christmas trees. A great selection of beers and one of the best Thai restaurants in London, it’s a hit.
