About Town

Exmouth Market is a classic story of urban gentrification: a one time run-down area whose old warehouses and factories were colonised by publishing, design and architecture firms in the 1990s, now one of London’s most desirable streets, situated nearby the Sadler's Wells theatre, with a trendy vibe, as demonstrated by the variety of stylish independent businesses in the highly pedestrianised street, including some of the city’s most appealing restaurants and places to drink, too many for me to mention.

Which restaurant or bar you try will depend greatly on your personal taste and inclination on the day; whatever it is, you will be spoilt for choice and you can always come back and try something else next time. My recommendations are below.
Recommendations this week:
