Winnicott Newington Green is bringing a new, international twist the world of pub grub. From their base on Green Lanes in Stoke Newington in North London, they bring together the burgeoning craft beer scene, authentic Italian pizzas and top-notch Third Wave coffee to create a varied and creative pub menu, but ensconced in the tradition of a British local boozer. They’ve only been open since September 2015 but they’re already going about making a space for the community to call home.
A great and Very relaxed pub with low lighting and Mellow feel. Only pizza on the menu and they are delicious. There is a tomato and mozzarella salad for 2 but it's enormous! The staff are lovely but the service can be a bit hit and miss in terms of it took a while for the pizza to arrive and offen there is no one behind the bar but then this kind of adds to the relaxed feel of the place.
Great pub great pizza. Lovely venue, friendly staff. Recommend either a group visit or just for couple. I will definitely visit this place again in the future.
When Dan and James first came across the Winnicott in Stoke Newington, they saw themselves as the saviours of the local community pub. Their dream was to bring affordable, decent food, high-quality beers and wines and a friendly atmosphere to Green Lanes in North London, and, since they opened in September 2015, they’ve been putting themselves to work to achieve that goal. They serve pub grub with a twist – pizza is the order of the day, with authentic Italian ingredients, recipes and even a chef (Simon) from Naples.
An Italian-cum-British pub is one thing, but to last as long as the towers in Pisa and London, Dan and James knew they needed a menu to back it up. From the bel paese they take pizzas – red, with tomato, white, without – and coffee, the two staples of Italian street cuisine. In the British corner, we find a drinks menu to behold, where local ales abound. Down on Green Lanes in Stoke Newington, there’s an Italian invasion going on the likes of which haven’t been seen since Caesar (or at least, Zola and Vialli…) turned up, and the locals love it, so make sure you book a table now.
