Some plates of lunch foods on a table

Best lunch spots in Stratford

One of the best things about working in Stratford is the abundance of good eateries and entertainment in the area. So we’ve rounded up some of the best lunches in Stratford – ranging from the formal sit-down to the more relaxed affair.

Location: Endeavour Square, IQL

Tonkotsu’s saying goes, “if you don’t make your own noodles – you’re just a soup shop”. And we believe you’ve never quite had ramen like this. At lunch time (specifically between 11am and 4.30pm), you can enjoy a small ramen and side for £9.95. Choose from ramen stuffed full of ingredients like pulled chilli chicken, mange tout, and seasoned egg. Sides include a choice of gyoza and edamame beans. If you’re feeling hungry, upgrade to a large gyoza for an extra £1.95.


Locations: Endeavour Square, Victory Parade and West Park Walk

Salads, sandwiches, hot dishes and small plates – all available at Signorelli, International Quarter London. The salads are super fresh and use seasonal produce, the hot dishes are scrumptious… but for us it has to be one of the deli sandwiches or focaccias – it is a bakery after all! All bread is baked in store, that day, so you’re in for a real treat. Top it off with something sweet from the abundance of baked goodies and biscuits and a toasty coffee for the perfect lunch break.


Location: Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park

If it’s good food and a beautiful setting you’re looking for, the Timber Lodge Café is your next lunch spot of choice. Serving up an ever-changing roster of fresh, daily specials and a set menu of pizza, soup, and bread, there’s plenty of choice. If you visit in spring/summer, during a school holiday you can also enjoy the BBQ – a range of burgers, jerk chicken and veggie options served straight from the barbecue. Yum.
