Fast becoming one of Hackney’s trendiest hotspots, London Fields is full of independent bars and restaurants, with Broadway Market offering a whole host of culinary gems. Here’s our top pick of places to go for a bite and a cocktail (or two).

Sans Pere

Sans Pere opened the doors to its second venue on Broadway Market in November. A French bistro with a twist, Sans Pere has created a menu perfect for those with a sweet tooth, offering up a unique and vibrant selection of cocktails, desserts and specialist coffees.

Innovative, French inspired cocktails are paired with each dessert. The cocktails incorporate homemade ingredients alongside classic French ingredients.

Tuyo

Further down Broadway Market, overlooking the Regent’s canal, is Tuyo. Spanish for ‘yours’, Tuyo serves a range of Mediterranean inspired tapas, pinchos, and bigger sharing dishes. Tuyo’s tapas are not just Spanish, they are also influenced by Greek and Turkish recipes to bring a mixture of flavours from the Med.

Perfectly positioned on the corner of Mare Street and Warburton Road (which heads down to the fields) is Martello Hall, a bar, restaurant, and workspace. Head there on a Sunday for a roast, during the week for bottomless coffee and fast wifi, or on a Saturday night for pizza from their wood fired oven and their delicious range of cocktails.

londonfields

London Fields, the buzzing heart of Hackney, has much more to offer its residents than just hipster cafes and craft beer breweries.

The area is full of a beautiful mixture of Georgian and Victorian architecture, which sit on the streets and squares that surround the park. The mixture of elegant terraces, semi-detached and detached villas are mostly arranged around picturesque garden squares or tree lined streets. Most properties are lucky enough to benefit from a good size garden of their own.

A vast improvement in transport links in recent years has been transformative, opening the area up as it never has been before. Central London, the City and Islington are now easily accessible via the Overground network, making it a popular spot for media and city professionals. Schools in the area have also  improved in recent years, with the quality of schools on offer being the main attraction to young families.

Broadway Market, while very popular with tourists, still provides locals with a hub of independent shops and a great sense of community. It is also home to quality restaurants and bars and is really the busy epicentre of this area.

Some of the most sought after properties are on Albion Square, which is close to Haggerston Overground, or on the roads overlooking or leading to the green space of London Fields. The average price for property here now stands at around £1,350,000 for a family home.
