Residents of this North London neighbourhood are spoilt for choice when it comes to drinking and dining options, with everything from Harry Morgan’s infamous salt beef bagels to fine dining and haute cuisine at Ozz Restaurant. Make sure you take a trip to Gelato Mio while the weather’s hot too!

Harry Morgan’s

A local institution since 1948 (!), Harry Morgan’s is infamous in North London for serving authentic New York deli-style kosher food. First timers should go for the meaty salt beef sandwich and the gooey Oreo cheesecake for dessert. Sunny day? Get your bagel to go and enjoy it in St John’s Wood Church Gardens instead – more on that below.

Crockers Folly

This beautiful Grade II listed restaurant on Aberdeen is a true hidden gem, having only recently reopened following a ten year closure. Originally built in 1898 it was known for having beautiful fittings and marble interiors, and has been returned to its original glory as a pub, restaurant and cocktail bar full of archways, pillars and elaborate stucco. The food and drinks are pretty good too!

The Duke of York

Looking for a proper pub in St John’s Wood? Head on over to the Duke of York, a historic 19th century public house with great food, a relaxed atmosphere and traditional interiors. There are tables on the pavement outside for warmer days if you can manage to get one, and Mondays and Wednesdays are dedicated to burgers and steaks respectively, so we hope you like meat!

French restaurant and coffee shop Richoux may sound straight out of Paris with pavement seating, and a simple, classy interior, but the menu is all-English with a host of traditional dishes and all-time favourites such as shepherds pie, fish and chips and an elegant afternoon tea offering. Come for the afternoon scones or sit on the terrace with a full English breakfast on a hot July morning. Bliss!
