NFT London Manor House

Manor House

Don't hang out near the 'scummy round the edges' station as it can get pretty gruesome at night. You might chance upon a warehouse party round here, but walk south, dodge the rats around the reservoir, admire the faux turrets of The Castle Climbing Centre, and head to the New River Café for great fry-ups with views over the leafy oasis of Clissold Park.

New River Cafe
It is amazing how fucked-up a fry-up can get. But the news is good, as New River Cafe at the residential end of Stoke Newington Church St gets it so right, it seems effortless. Maybe they should disseminate their secrets to the numerous shoddy cafes around town with their bitter baked beans and undercooked eggs garnished with wobbly yolk cellulite. This is a classic greasy spoon, with spooky pictures of clowns transferred onto mirrored frames who watch the customers tuck into juicy sausages and crispy bacon or home-made rock cake. The tea is strong, the windows misty, the bread fresh or plastic (choice, people, real choice) and the view into the park surprisingly ordinary. Look out for the strange wooden sign out front in the shape of a French maid--what could she possibly know about the finest of English fried cuisine?
