|Time Out in Shepherd's Bush|
Above are four of their top picks. The Patio restaurant on the side side of The Green, which serves up Polish soul food in big quantities at absurdly low prices, all washed down with plenty of vodka. Next up is my personal favourite, Abu Zaad, a family-run Syrian restaurant which dishes up all your Mediterranean favourites, and only slightly lets the side down by refusing to serve (or permit) alcohol. But hey, their house, their rules.

Time Out also recommend a number of local pubs and bars (see below).
The Princess Victoria on Uxbridge Road is a first rate gastropub, a big, beautiful high Victorian building with a large open bar and a posher dining hall at the back. The Queen Adelaide and the Brewdog I haven't tried, but the Albertine on Wood Lane is a lovely wine bar, with a seriously impressive and extensive wine list. The owner is famously grumpy but he knows his stuff and will happily advise you on what to drink. The food is a bit disappointing, but the cheese and charcuterie boards are excellent.
