The Londesborough has been around for a long time, and its latest incarnation isn’t far from what it was many years ago… which is a good thing: this pub serves by far the best Sunday Roast and general pub food around N16 every day of the week.
The only thing to wonder about are the fairly random opening times. Any sign of a quiet evening and the Londesborough shuts down, and there are pretty frequent closures for various functions, so do check the website if you’re planning a date or some other important occasion, unless you’re happy to walk back up to the Prince.

Foxlow is the family friendly/lower-key version of the Hawksmoor chain, so it’s steaks and their smaller siblings all round. Great location where Booth’s pizza and then the very similar to Foxlow but less formulaic Homa used to be.
A lot of my friends love the place, but unfortunately my experience wasn’t very nice, so I’ll shut up now. Please leave your reviews in the comments below…

Very lovely restaurant that mostly serves breakfasts late into the day. In a way there’s nothing for them to stand out (no special cuisine or signature dish or stuff) but everything on the menu is served to a very high standard, and even when it gets deservedly busy it never seems to feel crowded, rushed or uncomfortable. In a way every neighbourhood should have one.
The only thing we haven’t quite been able to figure out is what days they offer dinner and/or live music. Maybe that’s part of the mystery…
