The latest edition to the community, Pop Brixton is an open-air style market, which personifies the spirit of Brixton. Here you’ll find a combination of restaurants of all cuisines, local fashion designers, bars, and a health food café called homegrown (a personal fave). There is a greenhouse-style seating area for when the weather is nice. But the most wonderful thing is to sit in the sun, cocktail in hand as the sun is setting while listening to live music, because there is an event space called Pop Box, which hosts various events from live music, to movies, yoga and capoeira.

Your local Caribbean spot. Very good Jerk Chicken. A couple spots to sit. It is not a restaurant though.

Originally conceived as a more affordable restaurant for local people to Nuno Mendes' previous high-end restaurant on the ground floor of this beautiful hotel, a meal here is one of the best value meals you can find in East London. It's not cheap but the quality is a cut above the rest and a must go to spot. It's small, cosy, the staff are on point and the food is next level. It used to be walk-in only but you can book now. Usually fairly quiet vibe so a nice place to check with your partner as opposed to a big mixed group of friends although they'll make anyone feel welcome. Stunning bar downstairs for an aperitif or after dinner cocktail.

Tapas styled Thai-inspired dishes with a great selection of cocktails. I recommend the Prawn green curry, since the day I tried it up to today, I can still taste it in my mouth! There are a few little restaurants on that road and they are all very unique and local, this is the perfect street to live on

Easily one of my favourite beer gardens in the entire city, the Coach and Horses is truly a pub for all year round. Seemingly built around an old stable, the pub has found its rustic identity partially thanks to a recent refurbishment that gives the garden real character. In the winter you can sit by their log fire with a cask real ale while in the summer venture down to the bottom of their expansive garden with a G&T. This traditional spot also has a private room with a large projector screen perfect for hiring whatever the occasion.

Family owned pizzeria in Naples opens its only other branch on our very own Stoke Newington Church Street. Don't be put off by queues - not as bad as they seem, and well worth the queue.

My local steak house - deliciously meaty. Unpretentious.
