I get very easily bored on my running routes so I like to mix them up every so often and take the back streets or non straight forward ways.
Kelly Street is another with little 2 up 2 down houses painted colourfully – it is also a dead end, but just for cars, so perfect to run through off of Kentish Town Road and you wouldn’t find it if you were driving.
The Pineapple – tucked away off of Leverton Street it served up Thai food last time I was there. There are open fires making it a great place to cuddle up in front of the fire for Autumn & Winter.
The Vine on Highgate Road – they do great food here with a large dining room out back and a beer garden for when the weather is warmer.
The Junction Tavern – known for its food, definitely try out the Sunday Roast, but you’ll need to book as it’s popular with the local families (and you can spot celebrities in there every so often!)
The Abbey on Kentish Town road – it has a decked area and terrace out back and they serve food and have good late night music at the weekends.
