London

Where to eat and drink in London this weekend

Simple pleasures

1. The Prince of Peckham

1 Clayton Rd, SE15 5JA So it’s hello to The Prince of Peckham, which takes the spot of the former Clayton Arms, perched on the end of- yep- Clayton Road. They got a nice strapline, which is that this is due to be a pub “operated by south Londoners, for south Londoners”. Which does sound wicked. Brass tacks, we’re talking BIG scale Carribean/British fare operated by Street Feast regulars White Men Can’t Jerk. Which means jerk sausage rolls and jerk bangers and mash.

2. Dalloway Terrace

16-22 Great Russell St, WC1B 3NN Elegant Fitzrovia terrace with a fine line in, would you believe it,brunch! And incredible salmon based brunch, at that.

3.El Bandito

222 Shoreditch High Street E1 6PJ Mexcal, endless aggressive mezcal. A truly malevolent spirit for your gullet. Oh, and cracking Mexican fare, too.

4. Sicily Fest

Brushfield St E1 6FQ Do you know your cannolli from your headbone? No, you don’t. But you will if you attend this scorcher. Promise yourself the disarmingly brilliant orange salad for the humid Saturday crush.

5. Dandy

20 Newington Green, Mayville Estate, N16 9PU Think shawarma-spiced lamb belly with baba ganoush, burnt onion broth, spring leaves and hay-smoked labneh. Think some more. Now you’ve got the measure of Dandy.
