Where is your favourite place to eat?

It’s our birthday soon, so we want to reveal the best places to eat in the area – according to you lot

Since Leytonstoner is about to turn 7, and therefore for seven years has reported on all the foodie comings and goings in the area, we thought it might be fun to put a simple question to you. Where is your favourite place to eat?

The only boundaries are that it should be in E10, E11, E17, E15, E20, E7 or E9, roughly where most of our readers live. It doesn’t have to be in Leyton or Leytonstone, although if it is, then even better. Because, as our name suggests, these two neighbourhoods are at the heart of what we do.

It can be a café, pop-up, bakery, bar or pub. A kitchen residency, BYO or full-blown a la carte restaurant. And if you want some inspo from our own scribblings, just peruse the extensive 24-page Food & Drink section here.

We know different venues serve different purposes, but we still think if pressed, most people can pick one, consistently good place they make a beeline for on a regular basis. And that’s the one we want to hear about.


DM us on Instagram, or comment on Twitter or Facebook when you see this post go on social media. Since it’s our 7th birthday, we’ll unveil the Top 7 places to eat (according to you lot) very soon. But be quick, any vote cast after March 2nd (next Wednesday) won’t count. And it goes without saying no spamming, or repeat responses.

Don’t forget to cast your vote on social media, or email your fave to info@leytonstoner.london. Follow @Leytonstoner on Twitter or FB, and @londonbelongs on Instagram

Please support us if you can

We very soon reach our 7th birthday, and have a bigger audience and social media following than ever before, but due to advertising revenues in freefall both Leytonstoner and our small network of independent online titles is under threat. As readers we need your support more than ever to keep delivering ‘good-news’ cultural stories that celebrate our wonderful neighbourhoods. Every reader or business contribution, however big or small, is invaluable in helping the costs of running the website and the time invested in the research and writing of the articles published. Support Leytonstoner here for less than the price of a coffee and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
