Max Halley’s cult Stroud Green café has won renown as an “outstanding, cheap ’n’ cheerful” gourmet option, thanks to its wild, wacky and wickedly enjoyable selection of sarnies, each of which amounts to what’s effectively a meal between slices of bread (be prepared to get your hands dirty).

Who knew sarnies could be so exciting? Max Halley’s “fun and noisy” Crouch Hill café puts others to shame with its paper parcels of enticing stuffed-focaccia creations, washed down with some good beers.

“Epic sarnies” – home-baked focaccia stuffed with hot fillings – make “legend” Max Halley’s Crouch Hill sandwich shop an entertaining destination, whose “great value” door-stops are accompanied by “good beers and nice grooves on the jukebox”. (Now also at Birthdays in Stoke Newington.)

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
