Juliette Banner’s “lively unpretentious place” in Crouch End celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, basking in the “relaxed vibe” it provides regulars, who keep coming back for the “interesting cheap menu” of world food. It “can be clamorous, but in a good way – and the food couldn’t be more child-friendly”. Top Tip: you can book ‘Bob Dylan’s table’, the very spot where the Nobel Prize-winning beatnik bard dined during his legendary 1993 visit to Crouch End.

“Perfect for breakfast” – Juliette Banner’s “very family-friendly”, neighbourhood diner has been a treasured staple of Crouch End life since it opened in 1992 (and chef Tim Peterman has been in charge of the stoves all this time too). By contrast, its wacky mix of world food cuisine makes it “a bit of an unreliable option for dinner” though.

Founded by Juliette Banner nearly 30 years ago, this community-minded Crouch End diner offers an all-day world-food menu and is a local hero for its “great breakfasts” (less so for a visit at other times).

For 31 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).
