Clerkenwell is located in the borough of Islington. It was an ancient parish in medieval times. Clerkenwell is named after a well where Parish clerks would hold biblical plays. Most notably, this area was home to London’s Little Italy from approximately 1850 to 1960. The community still exists, though much smaller, and is based around St. Peter’s Italian Church with street fairs taking place in July.
There is a Waitrose and Partners directly across the street, as well as a Tesco Express at the corner. Simmons Bar is the closest pub with many happy hour specials. For a nice trim and a cup of joe visit Lily Maila salon. There’s also a Pret a Manger just up the street.
For some gastropub fun, try The Eagle, it’s of the originals in this area. It serves up Mediterranean cuisine mostly off the grill. The only way to catch the menu is on the chalkboard as the chef changes it daily. There’s a live feed on their website.
For some great street food try the Exmouth market, off Farringdon Lane. Slightly further off is L. Terroni & Sons Italian deli, one of the best Italian specialty shops around.
