Leather Lane Unmissables
In a rush when heading to work and need to grab a bite to eat? If you’re around Chancery Lane you’ll be spoiled for choice!
Not only do you have the local food-stops on the high street, but there is also Leather Lane market. (Which even more conveniently is around the corner from The Chronicle and The Rosebery.)
Known as the centre of London’s ‘Little Italy,’ it’s one of the most vibrant streets in central London.
Leather Lane’s website is filled with juicy details and profiles of the people who work the street’s stalls. We love teaming with and including our communities, which is why Leather Lane holds a special place in our hearts. The community and shared history are extremely important to Leather Lane’s success.
A must-know: The market is on from 10-2 on weekdays.
While taking a stroll down the lane you’ll find stalls selling as wide a range of things from food, handbags, footie gear, to plants.
Take a wander around, relax, but don’t forget to do these key things while you’re there:
There is so much to offer, but here’s a few of the best (well in our eyes… and stomachs).
If grab and go is what you’re after, you can’t do better than Sub Cult, with their masterpiece steak subs.
Mugen (formally known as Tajima-Tei)! Mugen have been serving the freshest sushi and sashimi in London since 1998. They have a wide selection for lunch and dinner, accompanied with a traditional atmosphere!
For something a little more green:
Have a taste of healthy, environmentally friendly fast-food from Pod! You can even dine in and enjoy the views of the market. Pod’s menu changes with the seasons and consists of freshly made soups, sandwiches and salads (who knows what’s on the menu, you could be pleasantly surprised).
Prufrock Coffee, in its large and bright space, is almost always rammed—try one of their flat whites to understand why. They’re a specialist coffee shop who have been around for 10 years. Their director is World Barista Champion, Gwilym Davies!
Get your friends together on your lunch break, or even after work and have a ping-pong party. Bounce is just off Leather Lane and is a guaranteed bag of laughs!
If you’re after authenticity and a piece of history, check out Dave’s Oven Baked Jacket Potatoes. Dave has run the stall for the past 10 years. He’ll give you the run down on how the street is changing.
Neighbouring Hatton Garden, with the most jewellery stores in London, by some measure. Or try any of the wonderful restaurants around Clerkenwell -London exploring never ends!
Ask our reception, we’re sure they’ll be racing to share their favourite suppers and locations. Or, if you have any for us to add on, we’re all ears.
