Ready-made Sunday: Tom Kerridge’s favourite north London spots

The chef on his favourite places to hang out at the weekend

By Time Out contributors

10am: Café

Banners in Crouch End was my go-to brunch spot when I lived there. The food is kind of Mexican-and-Jamaican inspired – think refried beans and fried plantain. I really like the beans – they’re like posh baked beans. It’s very hospitable too. It’s a wonderful place to kick off the day.

11am: Park

Just up the road is Ally Pally, where you get incredible views over London. But indoors is a great place to wander around too: you can grab a coffee there.

1pm: Pub

Next, go for a drink at The Harringay Arms. It’s a small pub with a lovely vibe. It has lots of regulars – it’s almost like the Crouch End community centre.

3pm: Gallery

Then I’d head over to Camden Arts Centre. It’s a great space – a manageable gallery for a Sunday, and it’s eclectic. It always has different events going on, too. It’s quite community-based and there’s a café and a shop.

6pm: Restaurant

I’d finish the day over in Newington Green at Perilla. It’s a brilliant neighbourhood restaurant which does modern dishes based on classics. On Sundays it does dinner from 6pm to eightish, which is ideal. Last time I was there I had a really good sharing dish of fish and chips with curry leaves in the batter.
