Pub

“This friendly cabin of an Irish pub has been the haunt of Camberwell’s more cultured art students since Leonardo’s time, it seems. Prices are still cheap, the regulars still include old locals who’ve been skulking around in SE5 since Macmillan told them they’d never had it so good, and the decor is still largely made up of pre-war drinks advertising (‘Good Old Murphy’s!’) and contemporary photography. Beers might include selections from the Brodie’s brewery in Leyton; such French ciders as Pays d’Aude and Fermier (each £6) offer an inappropriately continental alternative. Wine is not a selling point, but the prices are fair: all bottles are £12, with glasses at £4.20.”

Turkish Restaurant
$$
“A staple in the Clapton community since 1974, this family-run restaurant specialises in juicy, flavour-packed Turkish wraps – made from fresh ingredients sourced daily and packed with a choice of sumptuous salads (we really rate the ‘Sumakli’ – red onion, parsley, sumac and pomegranate vinegar). There’s plenty of modern twists on the menu too, including their bestselling vegan doner kebabs and halloumi fries, all served up in a minimal, airy space.”

“My go-to local Indian restaurant. Its a cut above the normal and serves food that is a bit lighter than the traditional curry houses such as Star of India round the corner. ”

Gastropub
$$$
“The Palmerston has more of a relaxed restaurant feel, particularly in the room to the back of the bar. The ambitious menu changes regularly to reflect the seasons and there is an equally well-selected wine list. The set lunch menu is good value on weekdays and is a great way to sample the food on offer.”
