E17 gastro offerings

When the area of Walthamstow springs to mind, eateries and food stops may not be the first thing that you would associate with this postcode. The rapid transformation that the area has undergone in recent times however, has dramatically altered the local landscape heralding in a new wave of exciting bistros, quirky coffee shops and hip restaurants. There really could be no better time than the present to get in front of the growing crowds and secure your spot in this sought after patch of urban tranquility. The new gastro offerings in E17 are coming together to create a neighbourhood and a style of living that is both desirable and reflective of modern cutting-edge East London. Let’s take a look at what’s on offer on the burgeoning streets of the ‘Stow.

What’s on offer for your plate? New gastro offerings in Walthamstow


Situated down the road from our office here on Hoe Street, GrillStock is the latest eatery to join the BBQ restaurant renaissance, serving-up those All-American smokehouse flavours. Meat, meat and more meat is the order of the day in this laid back ‘Rock n Roll’ establishment and what better way to enjoy those succulent dishes than with southern-style hospitality fused with a classic rock soundtrack.  Further aligning itself with the youthful flavour of present day Walthamstow, Grillstock also champions the local Grillstock festival in Chestnut Field every September.


56 St James

Keeping with the tradition of the cool and aloof East End Coffee house, comes the bang on trend 56 St James. With its breezy interiors and black chalk board menu wall, this spot is the perfect environment for busy freelancers or relaxed stay at home parents, to whittle away the hours. Serving Nude coffee brewed by well trained baristas, 56 St James offers the perfect Flat White for the very reasonable price of £2.50.



Situated in the heart of the achingly trendy Walthamstow Village, Eat17 serves classic British cuisine made from fresh ingredients sourced from ethical fisheries and organic local farms. The ambiance is refreshingly down to earth whilst still maintaining that contemporary feel. With a reasonably priced menu accompanied by fresh bread made on the premises, Eat17 is a great option for an enjoyable evening meal. It is also the home of Bacon Jam, the meat based spread which is growing steadily in popularity by the week.
