Parsons Green has a rather unfair reputation for being the exclusive turf of those that fit the British stereotype of the Sloane Ranger – in short, upper-crust types in quilted vests (winter), rugby jerseys and expensive sunglasses (summer). Not at all, dahling. Restaurants in Parsons Green are packed with couples and families out enjoying this bucolic London village, whether or not they own a £2.5 million townhouse in the area. If you’re a dog owner, you’ll be pleased to hear that the Parsons Green restaurants are usually happy to put out a bowl of water for your beloved mutt, or even let her inside. That’s another distinguishing feature of Parsons Green – it’s one of London’s most dog-friendly pockets. Woof woof!
