Gastropub
$$
“Expect a daily menu full of pared-down British and European flavours, from smoked cod’s roe with Jersey royals, horseradish and dill or home-cured bresaola with mustard fruits to grilled Cornish lemon sole with salsify and brown shrimps or braised Creedy Carver chicken with cannellini beans and wild garlic aïoli. Meanwhile, the Canton’s food-friendly wine list is packed with “amazing finds and organic jewels” – plus lots of big flavours. No bookings, but friendly staff operate a waiting list for those who are happy to hang around in the bar until a table becomes free. It may not be in the most fashionable part of town, but the Canton Arms is “always buzzing”.”

Portuguese Restaurant

“O Cantina de Portugal is a lively Portuguese tapas place offering a hearty selection of grilled pork and chicken dishes alongside a traditional assortment of seafood. With generous portions and dishes like fragrant octopus salads, garlicky grilled prawns doused in olive oil and salted, dried cod flaked over thick chips and with and a friendly community atmosphere (it’s a particularly fun place to watch European football), this is a great restaurant for groups who want an informal and relaxed meal. Keep an eye out for the weekend specials including the whole roasted suckling pig.”

Cafe
“From the team behind big-hitting gastropubs such as The Anchor & Hope and Canton Arms, comes this all-day dining restaurant. Marking a departure from the gastropubs that made the group’s name, Stockwell Continental serves up coffee and breakfast pastries in the morning, while later in the day sees salads, pastas and pizza from a wood-fired oven. Craft beers and wines-on-tap are on-hand to quench thirst. Expresso Martinis are awesome!”
