Set in a funky, relaxed atmosphere, you could easily forget that you’re on Camden High Street. With drinks or coktial offers on seven nights a week, the Camden Kitchen still proves to be a great night out whether with friends or a candlelit dinner for two. And at an average of £12 per head with wine - great value also! Open Mon-Fri 11am-11pm, Sat-Sun 10am-11pm. Camden Kitchen, 102 Camden High Street, NW1. Tel: 020 7284 2744.

London’s original Moule House and award winning Belgian restaurant is the place for moules, frites and beers. However, Belgo is not just about mussels, as carnivores can delight in an assiette de charcuterie followed by wild boar & chimay sausages with Belgian mash or a fillet steak with trappist beer jus. Those in the mood for something a bit lighter might try the king prawns wrapped in Parma ham with clams, or peppered tuna steak with roast artichokes and salsa verdi. All served by a waiter, kitted out in a monk habit and a friendly smile, who will be able to recommend a beer with every dish you order from an array of 101 Belgian beers. Opening times: Mon-Fri 12-3pm, 6-11:30pm, Sat 12-11:30, Sun 12-10:30. Belgo Noord, 72 Chalk Farm Rd, London, NW1. To book a table or to find out about their special promotions call 020 7267 0718.

Wagamama has been very trendy and very succesful since the ‘noodle bars’ first hit the streets in 1992 and its popularity shows no sign of waning yet. It’s extensive menu ranges from traditional ramen noodle soup and teppan-fried yaki soba, ramen noodles with egg, shrimps and vegetables, to ‘squeezed to order’ juices and Japanese beers. The Camden branch of the noodle bar is situated in Jamestown Road - just metres from Camden High Street but provides a cool, calm oasis from the hustle and bustle of the area. With their passionate belief in value for money, eating out at Wagamama probably still costs less than £10 a head. Wagamama, 11 Jamestown Road, London NW1 7BW. Tel: 020 7428 0800
