Hoxton’s fanciest restaurants
Hidden away behind a minimalist facade on Hoxton High Street, 100 Hoxton blends bold flavours with industrial surroundings. Perfect for that candle-lit date night or a classic cocktail (or three), be sure to check out its sister restaurant located in South Kensington for an equally delectable menu. 100 Hoxton Street.
Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen
Tucked away amongst the cobbled backstreets of Hoxton, Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen is a sight to be savoured. The first restaurant in The Naked Chef’s culinary empire, the location was originally created to introduce the young and unemployed to the world of food. Sourcing only the finest seasonal ingredients, head chef, Robbin Holmgren, has crafted a menu to be proud of. 15 Westland Place.
Fancy flavours in a warm and homely atmosphere, this unassuming East London spot serves up a truly incredible selection of dishes. Named after the Roman road connecting key Italian cities in the ‘Food Valley’, we recommend you try their signature ‘gnocci fritto’ out for size. Renowned for their produce, Via Emilia by Food Roots is a must for an authentic taste of Italy. 37a Hoxton Square.
Petit Pois Bistro
If you’re after Parisian-style dining in the heart of bustling Hoxton, look no further than the intimate surroundings of Petit Pois Bistro. A quaint, French inspired spot that exudes sophistication, the restaurant offers up an extensive range of delectable wines to accompany their dishes. 9 Hoxton Square.
Another Hoxton Square favourite, Cocotte finds itself nestled next door to our previous French offering. A farm to table rotisserie that’s both supremely fresh and decidedly healthy, their free-range chicken is marinated for 24 hours, ensuring maximum flavour. 8 Hoxton Square.

Did someone say pizza? For thin and crispy pizzas with a pint, Sodo, located in the George and Vulture pub, is the perfect destination. Named after an Italian pirate radio station, Radio Alice Pizzeria is another local favourite serving up sourdough bases, alongside the steadfast Rossopomodoro. After a meal with a view? Turn to Proud East, located on the banks of the Regent’s Canal.
