Places to eat in Ealing
It’s easy to go on a culinary journey around the world using our Ealing hotel as a base, with everything from fancy French dishes to Vietnamese street food on offer.
One of the closest recommended restaurants to our hotel is Franco Manca, a sourdough pizza joint open for wood-fired pizzas, salads and pasta. The stripped-back, modern decor makes for a relaxed atmosphere and there’s a neat little terrace if the weather is warm enough. You’ll find Franco Manca just off New Broadway.
If you’re after some traditional Italian pizza, your best bet is Santa Maria. Located a short distance around the corner near Walpole Park, this place lets the pizzas do the talking, with thin-crust Neapolitans cooked in minutes via their wood-fired oven.
Heading back towards Ealing’s centre, Pho Saigon is one of several Vietnamese eateries in the area. Try one of their signature pho soups or dive into their main menu spanning vermicelli noodles and traditional rice dishes, all of which are pho-nomenal (sorry!)
Over on the High Street you’ll find Limeyard on the edge of Ealing Broadway Shopping Centre. It’s an all-day Californian-kitchen and bar known for its Instagram-friendly food that tastes as good as it looks. If you have a penchant for pancakes, this place serves the best ones around.
Continuing the global food journey, fellow High Street resident Sowa takes its inspiration from Poland, blending traditional Polish recipes with a modern European twist, creating a unique menu with plenty of daily specials worth checking out.
Hare & Tortoise might sound like a traditional pub, but walk inside the minimalist, wood-lined restaurant on Haven Green near Ealing Broadway Station and you’ll find a Japanese canteen where you can take your pick of neatly-presented sushi, ramen or rice dishes.
You’re never far from a cracking cup of coffee in Ealing, with Cafe Zee practically on the doorstep of our Ealing hotel. Their coffee is roasted in-house, creating a rich, aromatic brew while their cakes are all home-made using natural, fair-trade ingredients.
Just past the Ealing tube and train station is the Electric Coffee Co, a rustic coffee shop and wholesaler voted as one of the Top 50 UK coffee shops by The Independent. They source coffee from around the world perfectly paired with their Mediterranean-style light-bites breakfast and lunch menu. And should you wish, you can purchase some of their coffee to brew at home.
Next up is WA Cafe, an independent Japanese patisserie a few doors up from the Electric Coffee Co on Haven Green. All the delicate pastries, buns and bread are made daily on-site, with their tea and coffee range served in delicate China cups and bowls.
We love a good restaurant name pun, and when the outlet serves freshly-fried fish and chips, we’re all in. As you might expect, we’re big fans of The Codfather in South Ealing, a local takeaway institution that also does kebabs, burgers and pies. It’s no-frills, but as chippies go, this is a good one.
Staying in the fast-food world, head to Siirgista Bros in central Ealing for some of the best burgers for miles around. With over a dozen burgers to choose from, plus a wide range of sides including chicken wings, nachos and guzzle-tastic shakes, it’s a fast-food joint with an artisan edge.
