Located in the heart of London, Hatton Garden is known as the UK’s largest jewellery hub with over 300 jewellery businesses in the area. From heavy gold belcher bracelets or iced out hip hop pendants to luxury watches or diamond engagement rings, you can find literally every type of jewellery here.

But it’s not just jewellery shopping that Hatton Garden is popular for. In fact, over one million tourists walk the streets of Hatton Garden each year; buying jewellery and visiting the many tourist attractions from luxury clothing stores to local pubs.

Of course, if you’re planning a day trip to Hatton Garden, the one non-jewellery activity that you’re almost certainly going to do is getting some delicious food! Luckily, you have more than enough options to choose from.

In this blog, we share our favourite places to eat in Hatton Garden.

Leather Lane Market

First on this list — and with good reason — Leather Lane Market is the ultimate street food destination in central London. With a history dating back to the 17th century, Leather Lane is Camden’s oldest street market and today, is home to more than 100 street food stalls with a huge range of dishes from around the world. 

The market is usually open on weekdays between 10am to 2pm, so whether you’re after some thai cuisine, paella or even a pizza, it’s the perfect place for a casual lunch. 

Tongue & Brisket

Based at the bottom of Leather Lane, in the street parallel to Hatton Garden, Tongue & Brisket is another must-visit lunch spot in the area. Home to some of the best salt beef sandwiches in London, this traditional delicatessen specialises in chunky cured meat sandwiches, including roast beef, ox tongue, turkey, schnitzel, smoked salmon and more. While they’re all delicious, if this is your first time here, we’d definitely recommend the salt beef!

The Bleeding Heart

Home to not one, not two but THREE different venues, you could easily spend a full day at the Bleeding Heart Yard. First is the flagship Bleeding Heart Restaurant, which leads the way with an award-winning wine list and selection of modern French dishes. Next door is the French Bistro, serving traditional French dishes and wine-by-the-bottle. Finally, there’s the Tavern if you’re in the mood for a few pints — although, like its sister venues this place also serves some delicious heart-warming food. 

All three venues offer private dining rooms, which are ideal if you’re after a more luxurious experience.


This local cafe is situated on Leather Lane, serving up a selection of feel-good Pan-Asian street food, craft beer and artisan teas. Visit KIN at any time of the day and it’s bound to be busy, but no matter how bustling, you’ll be presented with a friendly atmosphere and impeccable service. There’s also an extensive range of vegetarian and vegan options, so it’s suitable for the whole family.

The One Tun

Not to be confused with One Tun in the West End, The One Tun is a delightful local pub and restaurant based on Saffron Hill. Specialising in Thai cuisine, from dim sum and gyoza to pad thai and curries, you’ll feel right at home here if you’re a fan of authentic Asian food. It’s also a cheerful spot for a couple of drinks after your day out in Hatton Garden, with an extensive alcohol menu containing everything from gins, wines and beers to signature cocktails.

Ye Olde Mitre

This award-winning pub has been part of London’s history since 1546, when it was built for the servants of the Bishops of Ely. Rumour has it that Queen Elizabeth I danced around Ye Olde Mitre’s famous cherry tree with Sir Christopher Hatton in the 16th century. This cherry tree now supports the front of the building, and is just as big a part of Hatton Garden’s history as the pub itself. 

In terms of food, Ye Olde Mitre serves a delicious lunch with a selection of traditional pub fare, including toasties and hot snacks such as sausage rolls and steak pies.
