Arguably one of the quirkiest restaurants in London, is serving up mouth-watering cuisine in a refurbished 1960s tube carriage. Surrounded by the original seats, signs and windows, diners can feast on a Columbian-inspired six-course tasting menu courtesy of head chef Beatriz Maldonado Carreño.

The Duke E17

122 user reviews 4

Serving up some of the juiciest burgers in E17, this welcoming neighbourhood boozer is known for its late-night lock-ins, hearty Sunday roasts and summer BBQs. Decked out with exposed brickwork, cosy fairy lights and quirky knick-knacks, it's the perfect place for a relaxed date night or intimate private party.

Seen more as a community hub than your bog-standard boozer, The Dog and Duck boasts a jam-packed calendar of events and its very own cinema area for cosy film nights and live-sports fixtures. And to keep those stomach rumbles at bay? There's a lip-smacking menu of sourdough pizzas and classic bar snacks.

The Collab

The Collab is one of Walthamstow's coolest restaurants, combining a taproom and kitchen under one roof. Head over for the chance to sip stunning craft brews (with previous collaborations including Alt-J and Mogwai) alongside a wide choice of stacked signature burgers.

The third venue from pizza aficionados Yard Sale Pizza, this funky retro-style spot is buzzing from midday 'til late. Serving up a small (but perfectly formed) menu of twice-fermented slices, toppings include Nduja sausage, garlic roasted aubergines and plant-based THIS™ Isn't Chicken Nuggets.

This teeny-tiny wine bar is the stuff of date-night dreams. Serving a carefully curated menu of international and local sips, there is also a weekly-changing selection of seasonal small plates. Previous menu highlights have included spinach and ricotta fritters and prosciutto crudo served with sweet melon and a honey vinaigrette.

Boasting a 100% plant-based Indian-inspired menu, SpiceBox has built something of a cult following since it opened its doors on Hoe Street in 2018. Head here to feast on jackfruit jalfrezi, chick'n tikka and tarka dahl, or grab a takeaway to enjoy in your PJs back at home (we won't judge, promise).

The Brewery Bar

Part of Walthamstow's hugely popular Wildcard Brewery, this bar is known for its impressive selection of craft ales and roster of live music events, pop-up festivals and sports screenings.
