First date venue recommendations (London)?

Recommendations sought for a red hot first date in north London. Looking for relaxed, inexpensive, not posh. Somewhere where we can just chill. Preferably not Primrose hill/Hampstead heath/Spaniards. Somewhere near a bit open space would be nice? Anywhere off the beaten track? ta

I once went on a first date at the Natural History Museum. It was one of my best dates ever!

Drapers Arms, pub in Islington? Lovely garden and food.
Morito, Exmouth Market (can sit outside).
Granger, Clerkenwell (no outside space but light and airy).

So has a date been set kissme ?!

Nope, no first date set yet. I am just checking out venues so I'm prepared. Hoping he's just sitting on his hands at home repeating I must not email her yet & appear too keen - or that he's suddenly come over all shy now he's confronted with the prospect of a real live woman dropped into his lap!

Don't worry, after 20years, if this comes off I shall set off bloody fireworks grin The whole of MN will know about it. <slinks back into the corner>

Perhaps one of the Benugo park cafes -e.g. The Regent's in Regent's Park or Fields in Lincoln's Inn Fields. I know the latter isn't really north London but otherwise it fits your brief well. Very chilled, open all day, pizza oven, surrounded by park & tennis courts.

Highgate village - if daytime and you want low-key then go to Waterlow park with a cafe there (it's better than standard park cafes) or one of the pubs in the village if evening and you can stroll around afterwards without it being crowded..
