Offering a mix of Cantonese, Szechuan and Beijing cuisine and an extensive drinks menu, this restaurant is ideal for a romantic evening, a special occasion or a catch up with friends.

The informal pub offers a superb range of drinks, with an extensive draught selection focussing on the best of British, including a local lager called Camden Hells. The wine list showcases some of the world’s finest producers and some of the cocktails have a quirky twist, alongside classic favourites. The food menu is changed daily to ensure that only the freshest ingredients are used.
Social – The Regent’s Park and Primrose Hill
Primrose Hill was purchased from Eton College in 1841 to extend the parkland available to the people of North London for open-air recreation. At the top of the hill is one of the six protected viewpoints in London - the summit is almost 63 metres above sea level and the trees are kept low so as not to obscure the view. Neighbouring Regent’s Park offers so much for all ages, whatever the season, including London Zoo, the Open Air Theatre, formal gardens,the largest outdoor sports area in Central London, the waterfowl collection and 100 species of wild bird.
