Eating and drinking

The location and area is ever changing, below are some of our favourites:

  • The Red lion

    Excellent pub in the heart of Leytonstone town centre, serves excellent food and regularly holds events and music. We particularly like the outdoor cinema in the summer.

  • The Northcote

    A fantastic hidden gem, the pub has seen a huge transformation over the past year with the current landlords introducing events and pizza by Muga. We love the Sunday drag night.

  • Panda

    This place is literally dim sum heaven, super fresh dim sumís made on site. A friendly cafe environment which offers excellent quality and value - If you like things spicy the Dan Dan noodles are not to be missed.

  • Sing Buri

    Super little family run Thai cafe, which is famous in these parts. The food is fresh hot and incredible value. Watch out for the specials board, youíll find some very interesting dishes.

  • The Wild Goose Bakery

    Essential for that quick treat and coffee. This place has become a must if you're out in Leytonstone. Super friendly staff, excellent cakes and treats and they even sell real sourdough bread.

  • All you read is Love

    Cafe, Bookshop and bar. Fantastic space located at the top of High Road Leytonstone. Along with all this youíll find vinyl records and games - the sandwiches and food and food are to die for.
