The Crooked Well

Located in the heart of Camberwell, The Crooked Well is an award-winning gastropub, fronting some of South London's tastiest plates. While interiors are traditional, the menu is anything but, with dishes such as Moroccan spiced lamb croquettes and celeriac steak served with kale, white beans and salsa verde.

The Black Lion

After a gastropub for some mouthwatering plates? Look no further than The Black Lion on Kilburn High Road. This Grade II listed building is home to some tasty Indian grub, including ragda patties with curried chickpeas and chargrilled aubergine served alongside smoked almonds. Yum.
