If you grew up in the '80s & '90s, this place may be your new favorite spot. It features restored classic arcade games (think Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, Street Fighter and more), tons of craft beer, movie screenings, rocking food & good music.
All hail the holy trinity of wine, cheese, and meat. Opened in a former public house in Hackney, this 60-seater is set to wine and dine you on unusual wines, a solid brunch, and even some local and international craft beers.
After two years of hard work, the 100-year-old public facility located just next to Clapham Common station was given one hell of a facelift and now is one of the only wine and charcuterie (WC -- get it?) joints South of the river worth going to.
Located just off Camden High St, The Bayou is doling out soul food like crispy buttermilk chicken, po'boy sandwiches, and house-smoked ribs, as well as a drink menu loaded with bourbon, cocktails, and American beers.
Located right by the canal, this warehouse-style space is a pretty perfect spot to drink and eat away a hangover while sitting on their massive terrace, and taking in good weather.
One of the restos in Russell Norman's empire, this Notting Hill spot dishes out small Venetian plates with all the Aperol Spritzes and Italian wine you can handle.
Bringing with it all the acclaim that has been duly earned, this Knightsbridge version of Hawksmoor leans hard towards surf and turf with pretty fantastic fish options like Singapore-style deviled lobster and raw citrus scallops with chilli & ginger.
Head to this Clapham Mexi-joint for goodness like taquitos and enchiladas while sipping on margaritas and tequilas.
