This is one of NW5’s best places to drink craft beer - you’ll find a changing roster with an emphasis on tap and a soft spot for London brews. There’s a nice outdoor space, and the staff love to chat about beer. The food, which is available in evenings only except at weekends, comes from a succession of popups, most of them street-food type places. Comedy, music, and other events happen during the week, but we like it best on weekend afternoons, when the crowds aren’t crazy-big and we can relax with a leisurely beer and a snack or two. Especially in the garden.

Pizza East Kentish Town
Pizza East’s Kentish Town outpost is slick, fun, and good for any occasion. The pizza’s good, and so are the cocktails.

The Fields Beneath
Fields Beneath is a vegan cafe next to Kentish Town West overground that's perfect for a sit down, or a quick bite before jumping on the train.

Seafood is the speciality at this Notting Hill pub. Head downstairs if you want something casual, or to the first floor for a posher meal.
Mayflower Pub is the oldest boozer on the Thames, and a great spot for proper pub food on the terrace.
Do old-school pubs still exist? They definitely do at The Pineapple, a Kentish Town drinking den with a lovely conservatory.
