The Duke E17

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.

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.

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.

Truman's Social Club

Truman's Social Club is an all-new bar in Walthamstow. Starting off as a large beer garden with fantastic street food, it hopes to expand in the near future to include an on-site brewery, taproom, marketplace, artist studios and a live music venue, becoming one of the area's top destinations.

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 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.

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. Located in the heart of Ravenswood Industrial Estate, seek out this spot for freshly made thin and crispy pizzas.
