Uncle Nam’s

New Vietnamese Street Food restaurant on the High Street… great lunch (Vietnamese baguettes) and dinner options, including some vegetarian ones, but as the guys are friends of mine I won’t write too much here. I am genuinely excited though, and delighted by their food and service, so please let us know what you think!

Opening Times:
Sunday to Thursday: 12:00 to 22:00
Friday and Saturday: 12:00 to 22:30

You can also find Uncle Nam’s on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Yummy Yummy In My Tummy Kids’ Cafe

56 Stoke Newington High Street
London N16 7PB
Phone: +442075037747

Great new children’s cafe with a fun packed timetable of entertainment, classes, activities for kids and parents.

The Good Egg

93 Stoke Newington Church Street
London N16 0AS
Phone: +44 207 682 2120

New and modern Middle Eastern restaurant with some interesting dishes and cocktails. Expect lots of Tahini and some dishes you might need a few minutes to get your head around… whole cauliflower anyone?

Food and drinks are pretty good, reasonably priced ad the food is mostly pretty healthy as well.

Unfortunately the décor is exactly the same as any other exposed-brick bar or restaurant around, so make sure you don’t accidentally end up somewhere else!

The Rose & Crown

199 Stoke Newington Church Street
London N16 9ES
Phone: +44 207 2547497

A Stokey favourite for decent Sunday Roasts, the Rose & Crown also offers a great pub quiz (currently on Tuesdays), lovely staff, and cozy open fireplaces. Upstairs is a recently reopened, slightly pricey but totally lovely boutique B&B, the only one in the centre of Stoke Newington as far as we know.

Mothership to the Jolly Butchers and the Brownswood free houses.

The Prince

59 Kynaston Road
London N16 0EB
Phone: +44 20 7043 5210

The Prince has seen a major overhaul back in 2014 which now makes it seem almost twice the size as before. The modern pub food is great, and there is a small but interesting selection of beers and spirits. Unfortunately, its new size and lack of sound dampening can make it incredibly loud in the main room.

The small but nice garden is now covered when necessary, and generally a good place to hang out on summer days.

Opening Hours
Monday to Thursday: 5pm-11pm
Friday: 5pm-LATE
Saturday: 12pm-LATE
Sunday: 12pm-10:30pm

The Jolly Butchers

204 Stoke Newington High Street
London N16 7HU
Phone: +44 207 2542970

This place now belongs to the folks behind the Rose & Crown. It has changed from being a toilet (aka Father Ted’s, Stokie’s Bar) to a proper free house that offers a great selection of beers and good food, including a nice German sausage platter. Roast prices have come back down to normal, but so have meat cut standards, we hear.


226 Stoke Newington High Street
London N16 7HU
Phone: 020 7275 8827

Cosy little pan Asian restaurant with a focus on Japanese soup, noodle and rice dishes. Food is reasonably priced and generally good quality, though some option are definitely better than others. We recommend you generally stick with the Japanese options and avoid the Thai food and you won’t be disappointed.

The Londesborough

36 Barbauld Road
London N16 0SS
Phone: 0207 2545865

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.


71-73 Stoke Newington Church Street
London N16 0AS
Phone: 020 7481 6377

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…
