Food & Drink - 7/9 - The Vintage Guide To London
London’s best vintage restaurants,cafes and bars
Tiny with just a handful of tables and only really recognisable by the lantern that hangs outside (there’s no sign or name), you would be forgiven to just walk past 68 Colebrooke Row.
Entering Soho’s Secret Tea Room above the famous Coach & Horses pub is like stepping into a timecapsule from the Thirties.
Kettner’s is a must-visit in Soho, one of the oldest restaurants in London and steeped in old-school French charm.
Suck and Chew on East London’s Columbia Road has got to be a real treat for anyone with a sweet tooth. From its candy-coloured shop front to the many old-fashioned treats displayed all around, the shop is a multicoloured wonderland of nostalgic sweeties: if you like cola cubes, rhubarb and custards and handmade organic truffles then you’ll be in heaven.
Drink, Shop & Do is a design shop and café bar just around the corner from King’s Cross station selling products from emerging designers alongside vintage furniture and home wares.
Just a short walk off the highstreet mecca of Oxford Circus is Bourne & Hollingsworth, a living room sized tea room and bar that’s like a Tardis trip back into the times of back room drinking during Prohibition times.
