Picture the perfect neighbourhood restaurant. If you’re thinking candlelight, glasses of fine wine and plates of tasty French food at reasonable prices, then you’re not far off from Primeur. It’s a brilliant little wine bar and local restaurant between Stokey and Green Lanes that’s buzzing with locals every night, who come to gossip and eat nice food, drink good wine, and generally have a lovely time before stumbling home a little worse for wear. It’s good for anything from intimate dinners and catch-ups, to a knees-up with some good mates.
