New faces on Leytonstone High Road

The CrownThe Sheepwalk reopens as The Crown

The former Sheepwalk Pub on Leytonstone High Road is believed to be due to open this Friday as ‘The Crown’. Peeking through the windows it looks like it will have an atmosphere more like the Red Lion than the old Sheepwalk and will be offering food as well as drink.

Hungarian DelicatessenA taste of Hungary comes to Leytonstone

Just up the road from The Crown is Leytonstone’s first Hungarian delicatessen, Magyarok Boltja. Üdvözöljük a Leytonstone-ban (that means welcome in case you’re not fluent in Hungarian)! They have a Facebook page (the pictures are in any language you want them to be, but the text is Hungarian). Hungary has always had a reputation in Eastern Europe for having the best food, Budapest was often described as the Paris of the East, so a Hungarian influence on the High Road could be a good thing.
