Poppies Camden

Specified by: Avocado Sweets

Set in the heart of Camden Town, London, this new 110-seater sister restaurant to the original in Spitalifields, takes customers back to the 1940s and London’s re-birth after the war.

In 2014 it was judged the best UK independent fish and chip restaurant, Poppies serve up traditional fare, to eat in or take away, from some of the finest sustainable suppliers. To match that quality, specifiers Avacado Sweets ensured fixtures and fittings from floor to ceiling were reclaimed or traditionally-made to create a lasting appeal for Camden’s discerning locals, creative office workers and tourists alike.

The lighting overlooking the two-floor restaurant is salvaged from a war-time MOD facility in Stirling, a 50s factory in Halifax and street lights by G.E.C. Underfoot, reclaimed parquet flooring from a chapel in the north of England is set beside traditionally-made Victorian tiles and original 40s wallpaper.
