Why locals recommend it
Tucked away in an old bike shed in an enclosed garden, this is a haven from the craziness of London. The menu changes daily, and the chefs have a knack for reading my mind, picking my favourite ingredients, and weaving them through the menu in ways I hadn’t expected. I ate a perfect late summer lunch of courgette and pine nut strudel. It's only open during the day, and only on weekdays. It's BYO (corkage £6.50 a bottle), so pick up a bottle of something special, cancel your plans for the afternoon, and get settled in for a long and very enjoyable lunch.

Rochelle Canteen has been a reliable purveyor of seasonal loveliness since its opening in 2006. While the restaurant may be a little difficult to find for any newcomers to the area (it’s located in the old bike shed of the Rochelle School), the fare is worth the trek. Without pretence or fuss,…

“It may be a gluten-free zone, but this branch of the Beyond Bread Bakery is a rousing success – particularly if you roll up for a late breakfast. Naturally the staff of life crops up here, there and everywhere, but the kitchen also does a good line in mini pizzas, quiches and cakes. ”

“East Ham / Manor Park has some amazing local Indian restaurants. Much beloved by the locals and not particularly fancy to look at, but the food is good, plentiful and cheap. You'll pay a lot more for the same food somewhere more central. This is one such secret spot us locals love! ”

“Delicious thin crust pizzas made with fresh, organic ingredients. Super friendly staff. Although it's only a few seconds from the flat you can still be really lazy and get a free delivery. Open late. ”
