Pizza Place

“brilliant pizza, great cocktails, fun vibe. on the same site as chicken shop (downstairs) & dirty burger (out the back), both of which are also great. there's often a wait but you can put your name down and get a drink at the vine across the street.”

A spacious dining room and a cosy front bar serving everything from draught ales and Scotch eggs to ciders and charcuterie and even caviar and oysters. Food is all seasonal British produce from local farms and sustainable sources. A true local treasure!”

“The Grafton in Kentish Town is fast becoming one of Camden's most popular pubs. Spread across two floors, the bar serves a variety of different drinks, including 8 different award-winning ales and a list of fine wines. Better still, the venue's idyllic roof terrace is perfect for when the sun decides to make an appearance.”

Indian Restaurant
$$
“The Bengal Lancer has been Kentish Town’s best Indian restaurant for over two decades. Most orders leave the front door in plastic bags, but the picture-lined space is a good spot for quiet dinners. Focus on the unique dishes, including chicken liver hazri (great sweet and sour sauce) and sabzi begun, an aubergine and chickpea pie. The BL is a long-lived survivor in an area that’s seen a lot of restaurants bite the dust, and there’s good reason for that.”

“Mexican chain diner with a lively soundtrack for small plates of market-style food and cocktails.”

“Burger, steak and beer place. Also good if you're in the mood for a burger is Honest Burger, just down the road from Beef and Brew, and Dirty Burger, at the same location as Pizza East.”
