London’s best bakeries
Whittling down the best dough in the city is no mean feat. From Asian patisseries to cronut auteurs and sourdough specialists, when it comes to bakeries, London is a goldmine. We’ve risen to the challenge and eaten our way through the lot to round up London’s yeasty royalty. Why not pair your pastry goodies with a hot drink at one of the best cafés and coffee shops in London?
The best bottomless brunches in London
Drinking before noon is generally seen as ‘a bad thing’. But what if said boozing is done inside a fashionable London restaurant and accompanied by eggs, sourdough loaves and artisan coffee? In that case we call it a bottomless brunch and it’s entirely acceptable. In London, you’ll find bottomless bubbles and Bloody Marys, obviously, but you can also go beyond the tried-and-tested and experiment with infinite beer or endless streams of rosé. The food doesn’t have to be straightforward breakfast stuff either. Brunch can be anything from bao to barbecue, Turkish to Japanese. What’s more, the majority of these bottomless brunches go on well into the pm, so you don’t need to get up early to get involved. Time to go hard then go home! Or, you could just stick to regular old brunch. Video: Check out this list of five fab bottomless brunches in London RECOMMENDED: Find more great breakfasts in London. Into bargains?

London’s best Sunday lunches
Sunday lunch. There’s nothing quite like it. An elemental meal, one that Londoners take incredibly seriously. Debates about what constitutes the ‘perfect’ Sunday roast have been known to last for hours. There is no shortage of top roasts in London. We’ve rounded up the city’s best Sunday meals from a host of homely pubs and restaurants all around town. From snug neighbourhood staples to more bijou gastropubs, we’ve got something for every taste (if that taste is for comforting mounds of roast meat, lashings of gravy and carbs that’ll see you through winter). A lot of these places get quite busy, by the way. So you’re always advised to book ahead to avoid disappointment.

London’s best brunches
Brunch. A simple but devastatingly impactful concept. Eggs, sourdough and coffee (and maybe booze) a few hours after conventional breakfast time? Count us in, friend. It’s all stuff you can do at home, obviously, but occasionally it’s nice to get out, isn’t it? It’s a pretty sociable meal, after all. London is particularly well-stocked with places to indulge in the famous breakfast/lunch hybrid. Let us guide you to the best restaurants in town for a kick-ass weekend brunch in our city, from alco-friendly bottomless brunches to traditional full-English fry-ups and even New York-style feasts.
London’s best afternoon teas
March 2022: We’ve updated the latest prices, menus and opening times on all venues. Enjoy a cute high tea with everyone’s favourite rabbit Miffy at The Maggie & Rose Club and try The InterContinental at Park Lane’s Jubilee-themed afternoon tea that’s fit for a king or queen. Afternoon tea. Yes, it's twee. But there is something quite fun about working your way through what's essentially dessert tapas, especially when you’re at one of London’s top hotels, restaurants or cafés. Our city’s renowned for putting on some of the world’s best spreads – even better than your mum’s Boxing Day buffet. In fact, a Mother's Day afternoon tea is a great way to say thanks for keeping you fed over the years and every other loving act we take for granted. Try a classic fancy treat at The Ritz’s Palm Court, which comes with elegant live music and sweet delights aplenty. Or opt for something a bit more left-field with B Bakery’s afternoon tea on board a Routemaster bus, which combines city tour with finger sandwiches and scones. We’ve checked out exactly which afternoon teas are being served again in London and we’ll keep you updated as even more places share info on welcoming back customers. It’s going to be a little bit different: many hotels and restaurants have reduced opening hours and limited places due to social distancing. For any other safety details, check with venues in advance of your visit. But otherwise, go and devour all those miniature treats!
Michelin-starred restaurants in London
The yearly unveiling of the Michelin Guide’s ‘Great Britain and Ireland’ edition is always big news in the food-nerd world. For very good reason, too – London’s one of the top-ranked cities in the world for fine dining. And it’s got plenty of those coveted stars. While Michelin’s expertise on expensive, upmarket restaurants is well known, the Michelin Guide has also been criticised for its lack of relevance to ordinary diners. Conspicuous by their absence are London’s more affordable places to eat. The 2022 list saw restaurants led by Iré Hassan-Odukale and Jeremy Chan at Ikoyi and The Clove Club, but no new full three stars. The canny eater, it should be said, should consider aiming at the board’s Bib Gourmand list – a kind of ‘highly commended’ round-up that doesn’t require the formal fripperies of the star system. Really, it’s where the most exciting stuff lies – newcomers on the list this year include Time Out faves Evelyn’s Table and Trivet, and plenty more places that also appear in our meticulously compiled list of the best restaurants in London. Still, if you’re feeling flush, read on to find all London restaurants with a Michelin star (or three). RECOMMENDED: The 100 best restaurants in London.
London’s best restaurants for kebabs
Kebabs, whether they’re enjoyed on the way home from a night out, or in a buzzy restaurant dishing out Turkish cuisine, are one of life’s great joys. We've tried and tested the very best of these meaty treats that London has to offer – here’s a list of our favourites. Also, check out our list of best restaurants doing home delivery and takeaways in London.
London’s best fish and chip restaurants
It's an annoying, fairly inaccurate ‘fact’ that all Londoners love fish and chips. For most people it ranks behind curry, kebabs and burgers. When done well, fish and chips is a welcome, stodgy god-send. When they're bad though it's just a load of brown stuff, innit. So let’s take the element of risk out of it. Here are the best places to get this particular cuisine in London. Also, check out our list of best restaurants doing home delivery and takeaways in London.
London’s best Indian restaurants that are doing deliveries and takeaways
New year new you. But not so new that you can't order a massive Indian feast every now and again. What's the point of even living in London, otherwise? As you know, all of the capital’s excellent Indian restaurants and curry houses have closed for the moment, but lots of the best ones are continuing to send out banging tandoori grills and rich sour pathias to those lockdown souls in need. Want to elevate your dinner from meh-thi to tand-awesome? Here are some of your best options. PLEASE NOTE: Restaurant opening times and delivery/takeaway options are liable to alter at short (or no) notice. While we try and stay up to date, always check venues’ sites and social channels. Also, check out our list of best restaurants doing home delivery and takeaways in London.
The best pizzas in London to get delivered
Say what you like about pizza... actually don’t say what you like. Pizza is uniformly good. There are no other valid opinions so put your hot takes away. Want to commemorate a better-than-average day? Celebrate with pizza! Having a particularly crappy time of it at the minute? Drown your sorrows in pizza. We have assembled for you what we believe to be the best ’za outlets delivering to your door right now in London. This runs the gamut from fancy to definitely-not-fancy, so there should be something cheesy for everyone. In the mood for something else? Check our list of the best restaurants doing home delivery and takeaways in London.
London restaurants with the best views
What’s the point of eating out if you’re just looking at your plate? Boring! Dine like a demigod, staring down at your enemies, at these sky-high restaurants and cafés (as well as a few ground-dwelling joints with stunning backdrops). From jawdropping views of (and from) The Shard, to Tower Bridge, to a glittering lake in Victoria Park, London’s the most beautiful city in the world (okay, we’re biased), and if you fancy a panorama with your pizza you’ve definitely come to the right place.

Aspen & Meursault
If you like the idea of biodynamic and minimal-intervention wine, but don’t know where to start, then Aspen & Mersault should be your go-to. From the people behind lovely Elephant and Castle neighbourhood wine bar Diognes the Dog, this charming Battersea bar tries to demystify natural wine without any of the ponciness. Take your sip from bottles of accessible classics, vintages and funkier numbers in a super cosy environment (it has a fireplace!).
Market Hall West End
This West End sibling of Market Hall Fulham and MH Victoria, billed as the largest food hall in the UK, has a whopping 900 seats. It's got four bars and 11 street food vendors, including, at the moment, Gopal’s Corner, Super Tacos and Hotbox. Housed in part of the old BHS building, just off Oxford Street, it currently features CookDaily’s vegan bowls and BaoziInn’s dim sum, alongside Paradise Slice Pizza, pasta specialists Pastaio, and wrap-stars Fanny's Kebabs. Right now, it's also got Angela Sato's Japanese Yatai, Jian Bing specialist Pleasant Lady, and rotisserie chicken shop Good Birds. Check @markethallwestend for an up to date line-up of the traders.
The Table Café
Jammed onto the side of an architectural practice in Southwark, this serene Aussie-style café-restaurant is something of a quiet classic in this part of town. Throughout the week, the standard breakfast menu (lotsa eggs and avocado, as you’d expect) is bolstered by waffles and pancakes, plus brunch favourites such as sweetcorn fritters or strawberry French toast. Lunchtime (well, 11.30am) sees the arrival of burgers, fish and chips, bavette steaks, sizeable salads and ham-hock hash with bubble ‘n’ squeak. From 5pm Monday to Friday, The Table also has its own ‘urban garden’ where you can chill out with cocktails, prosecco, G&Ts, wines and light bites (mushroom ‘super sliders’, pork and black pudding sausage rolls etc). In short, a perfect respite from the hordes at Tate Modern.
Heap's Sausage Café
Just round the corner from the entrance to Greenwich Royal Park, chef Martin Heap’s cute little shop and café is a mecca for fans of artisan bangers. Seating is limited and it’s counter-service only, but the punters just keep coming to buy and scoff his terrific comestibles. If you can’t wait, bag a table and tuck into a plateful of bangers and mash with onion gravy, a ‘Lethal Lucifer’ hot dog or one of their hand-crafted pies. The all-day menu also touts air-dried home-cured bacon baps (great for breakfast) as well as burgers, quiches and a few veggie plates – plus a handful of desserts including chocolate brownies, Earl Grey teabread and flapjacks. Thirsty? They stock local Fourpure beers and wines from the cask too.
The Parkside Café & Terrace
Fabulous views of Greenwich Royal Park are a given at this café and terrace spread over two floors of the National Maritime Museum. Pick your table and order at the counter from a menu that highlights dishes from ‘land and sea’: the former might include burgers, pork schnitzel and pulled chicken ‘gyros’ with pomegranate sauce and tzatziki, while the latter could feature Meantime beer-battered cod and chips, fishcakes or pan-fried sea bass with green beans, fennel, edamame and orange sauce. Kids have their own menu, gluten-free options abound, and they serve Sunday roasts during the autumn and winter. Afternoon tea is another treat, especially if you enjoy gazing over the park’s regal vistas. Also try the Great Map Café on the first floor of the Museum.
Camden Market (West Yard)
Camden Market’s West Yard (the cobbled bit next to the canal and behind Lock 17) was (until recently) synonymous with KERB’s brilliantly creative street-food collective, who revamped the site and helped to make the neighbourhood cool again – thanks to a hot list of global vendors selling genuinely interesting and imaginative grub. The traders are still there, but KERB is no longer involved – although you’d hardly know it given the line-up of street-food stalls, cult cafés and terrace bars peddling their wares on the site. It’s an ever-changing feast but do look out for names such as Petare, Tongue ‘n Cheek or Young Vegans. The areas leading off the West Yard have also been cleaned up and re-branded as ‘alleys’ (eg ‘Asian alley’), although they’re mostly occupied bymore mainstream traders.

Japan Centre is now delivering its exceptional eats
Say sayōnara to hacking at those fish fillets and attempting to corral fistfuls of rice into a sushi-adjacent shape: the Japan Centre is riding to the rescue with a new London-wide grocery (and sushi) delivery service. It will be bringing delicious Japanese treats (and essentials) to your door from Monday November 16. Ichiba Market Place will be stocking and delivering more than 600 products, including fresh fruit and veg, noodles, frozen fish and meats, gyoza and buns to hungry Londoners. Sushi and sashimi are also on the menu, natch, along with an array of tipples: matcha, green tea, plum wine, craft beers, ramune soda and sakes from one of the oldest breweries in the world, Gekkeikan.

It runs until Thursday November 19.The minimum order is £25 and the local delivery charge to ‘main London postcodes’ is £2.99. Head to the official site for more info on delivery slots.

Hallelujah! There are actually some new bars and restaurants in London
Who the hell would open a restaurant or bar in 2020? Surely you’d have to have some serious guts to think it was an appropriate time to open the doors of a brand new venture. But, against all the odds, doors have been swinging open across the city. From favourites like Tandoor Chophouse, Swift and Club Mexicana opening new sites, to iconic venues like Barrafina giving their current venues total overhauls (its Drury Lane restaurant is reopening as a seafood spot), brave change has been happening on a major scale. But here we’re saluting the bravest of them all: the Londoners who’ve opened totally new joints this year. The modern Punjabi one Photograph: We the Food Snobs Agency Named after the family village of founders Ravinder and Amar Madhray, Attawa does Punjab comfort food that’s sure to cure your winter blues.

2020’s Michelin Stars – London’s winners and losers
Ah, Michelin. We don’t always agree with the Gallic gastronomes (though we do love Bibendum, their tyre-tummied mascot). But my, their awards do cause a kerfuffle. This year, there’s already an outcry about the lack of stars for the London 2020 Michelin Guide – just four new one-starrers, plus a couple of ‘upgrades’. And, as ever, there’s also a handful of restaurants that have been given the ceremonial chop. Here’s who’s in, and who’s out: NEW ONE STARSDa Terra at the Town Hall Hotel, Bethnal GreenThe Dysart Petersham, Richmond Endo, White CityMaos, Shoreditch NEW TWO STARSLa Dame de Pic at the Four Seasons Tower Hill NEW THREE STARSSketch Lecture Room and Library WHO’S OUT (excluding restaurant closures)The ArakiBenaresL’atelier du Joel RobuchonGalvin at WindowsYauatcha Bibendum giveth, and he taketh away.

We've just launched a new rewards card Time Out More: here's our pick of the perks
Our new perks card has just launched. These are some of the freebies you won’t want to miss out on Everyone knows that food and drink tastes better when it’s free. That’s why we’ve launched Time Out More – a rewards card with a difference. It’s a digital card, so there’s no danger of it going the same way as all those lost Oyster cards. And it’ll get you access to dozens of amazing deals at loads of your favourite venues, including Pizza Pilgrims, Street Feast and Shoryu. Think free cocktails, complimentary sides and gratis starters as well as off-menu dishes. All the good stuff, basically. Here’s our pick of the perks, as chosen by the Time Out Food team. Wings at Shoryu This Japanese joint knows its stuff. You can even choose the firmness of your ramen here. Before tucking into your bowl, smash through a portion of deep-fried chicken wings on the house. Vegetarian or vegan? They’ve got you covered with a zingy sesame and smashed cucumber salad. Cocktail at Jidori You’ll get a free cocktail on arrival at this Japanese joint in Dalston and Covent Garden, which should quench your thirst as you peruse the menu of izakaya-style delicacies. Don’t miss the fried chicken skewers. Drink at Smoke & Salt Shipping container hub Pop Brixton has loads of great food offerings, but its best has to be small-plates spot Smoke & Salt. Book a table for two in advance and you’ll be greeted with a free beer or a glass of bubbly. We recommend settling in for a long, leisurely meal.
A new Korean café has just opened in Soho
Jeonhwaleul jabda! – that’s Korean for ‘Hold the phone!’ – a multi-level Korean café just opened smack-bang in the middle of Soho. Meet Mee Market. Over two minimally designed floors (white accents, exposed brick, you know the drill), there's a hot counter dishing out traditional noodle soups, stews and hotpots, plus a grocer selling Asian-inspired dry foods. Downstairs, expect homeware, accessories, stationery and an 18-seat dining hall where you can warm up with a cup of Korean burdock root tea. Linda Lee (of Koba and On the Bab) is the brains behind the operation. She says she’s on a mission to bring authentic Korean food to London, so Mee Market is based on the country’s traditional ‘table and market’ concept. Let her know it’s your birthday, engagement or any special day, and she’s promised to honour Korean tradition and give you a free bowl of hot noodle soup. Mee Market opens on Mon Dec 4 at 9a Archer St, W1D 7AX. Need more Korean food? Here are the best places to get it in London. Sign up to Time Out to hear about new openings first.

A north London chippie is doing deep-fried Christmas pudding
’Tis the season for delicious Christmas gimmicks. Running off the success of last year’s battered sprouts (deep-fried brussels that are back for another round), fish-and-chip shop Sutton & Sons is now serving deep-fried Christmas puddings at its Stoke Newington, Islington and Hackney branches. Hot, crispy, battery puds? Ho ho ho-ly hell! They actually sound quite delicious. They’re going for £4.50, come with a serving of brandy cream and will be available from Monday December 11 until December 30 – what else do you need to know? Get into the festive spirit with our guide to Christmas in London. Sign up to Time Out to hear about Christmas nonsense as it happens.
You can now get a full Christmas dinner made entirely of crisps
Last year, we discovered that a restaurant entirely dedicated to crisps was opening in Soho. That spot – dubbed Hipchips – is still going. Apparently Londoners really love crisps. Time will tell whether this love extends to replacing our traditional Christmas dinner with them. But that’s exactly what Hipchips is offering: a five-course Christmas ‘dinner’ of handcrafted crisps (for a mere £6.75). Four flavours of crisps will be paired with five festive dips. A ‘starter’ of smoked salmon and pickled cucumber-flavoured crisps will appear, alongside a traditional turkey dinner flavour and a sweet Christmas pudding flavour for dessert. Dinner will be matched with a selection of craft beers, wine and cocktails, and they’ll be available on UberEats if you don’t feel like leaving the house. Jesus died for this.

The meatiest festival ever is coming back to London
Not for the faint hearted – or vegetarian – the three-day meat festival Meatopia has announced its return to London. Headed up by Richard H Turner (of Hawksmoor fame), the extravaganza is in its sixth year, serving up a delicious, fully curated menu from some of the world’s best chefs at east London’s Tobacco Dock. If you’re free of commitment issues and you know you’ll be in London at the end of August 2018 (tickets go on sale nine months in advance), head to the Meatopia website at midday this Friday. Earlybird tickets will give you access to the festival for a solid half-hour before anyone else is allowed in, which means you might not have to queue for 45 minutes for a bit of brisket like the other mugs. Last year’s line-up featured Yotam Ottolenghi, Nathan Outlaw and Nud Dudhia (of Breddos Tacos) cooking over many, many fires, so we’ve high hopes for this year. There’ll also be live music, craft beer and informal workshops on the horrifying-sounding ‘Cutting Room’ stage. It’ll all go down between August 31 and September 2. Tickets are on sale from midday on Friday December 1 from the Meatopia website. Can’t wait for your pound of flesh? Then check our our list of London’s best steak restaurants.

Teen cuisine: the four best places to eat if you're 13 to 19
When it comes to spending our money, us kidults are either wearing it or eating it. For those of you who strongly relate to the ‘eating it’ part, here are four of the best spots to chow down around town. Meatliquor A photo posted by MEATliquor Restaurants (@meatgram) on Sep 20, 2016 at 9:26am PDT If the world’s juiciest burgers, having your favourite song being played and the chance of your photobooth selfie being bought by the owners doesn’t tick every teen box, then I don’t know what will. We also love the names of their drinks (Kammel Toe, anyone?), the fact that they give you a free meal if you complete the chilli challenge (ten minutes to eat three chilli-covered dishes) and the ‘rabbit style’ burgers, which switch out the buns for lettuce! Dishoom A photo posted by Reem Kanj-Kemal (@reemkanj) on Oct 23, 2016 at 9:17am PDT Dishoom is a bucket-list-for-teens kind of a place, thanks to its good-quality, Indian-with-a-twist food and fair prices. They have vegetarian, dairy- and gluten-free options so no one has to miss out, and the decor is really fun and colourful, too. The trouble with being so good is that there’s usually a queue, so book ahead (they only take dinner bookings for groups so grab some mates) or go at an off-peak time. On the Bab A photo posted by On The Bab (@onthebab) on Apr 9, 2015 at 6:12am PDT Korean street food is the best if you’re young and on a budget: it’s super-cool and super-cheap. The food is super-satisfying, t
