While we get that the Victorian, post-industrial London thing is interesting to visitors, we’d recommend veering from the usual spots and making like a local by finding somewhere cosy and getting stuck into a Sunday roast. The Bull & Last, on the doorstep of pretty Hampstead Heath, does a very good one, and while the standard of cooking is very high, the atmosphere is pure boozer with a great selection of cask ales and local North Londoners ramping up the charm factor.
