The Best Places to Stay in the UK

Eat and drink

For a neighbourhood of its size, Stoke Newington has far more than its fair share of restaurants and bars. They’re good ones, too, with few of the bland chain options that stud most British high streets. Ethnic restaurants are superb, from the South Indian curry houses to the authentic Turkish and Kurdish joints dishing up steaming stews, hot mezze and fresh flatbreads on Green Lanes. There are plenty of coffee bars to keep the java junkies happy, and cafés for ladies (and gents) that lunch. A splendid Sardinian pizzeria, an upscale Modern British and a handful of unpretentious gastropubs mean that you will never be short of places to eat. As for pubs, there’s a good one with a distinctive personality on practically every corner. Stokey also boasts a supercool cocktail nightspot that feels like a transplant from Shoreditch.
