Hornchurch centre

Hornchurch is a suburban town in northeast London, England and part of the London Borough of Havering. It is located 15.2 miles (24.5 km) east northeast of Charing Cross and is one of the locally important district centres identified in the London Plan. It comprises a number of shopping streets and a large residential area. As part of the suburban growth of London in the 20th century, Hornchurch significantly expanded and increased in population, becoming an urban district in 1926 and has formed part of Greater London since 1965. It is the location of Queen’s Theatre and Havering Sixth Form College.

Hornchurch is identified in the London Plan as a “district centre”, with few well known High Street names other than banks and a supermarket, with some small independent or specialist businesses and a growing number of restaurants and bars. The town centre competes mostly with nearby Romford and the out-of-town shopping centres of Lakeside and Bluewater.

Takeaways in Hornchurch include famous and popular names like: Yin Court Chinese, New Wok Inn, Top Chicken, The Top Pizzas, Pizza Go Go Upminster, Pizza Go Go RM1, Base Pizza – all delivering food in Hornchurch, Essex.

Food takeaways in Romford Essex

RomfordRomford is a large suburban town in northeast London, England and the administrative headquarters of the London Borough of Havering. It is located 14.1 miles (22.7 km) northeast of Charing Cross and is one of the major metropolitan centres identified in the London Plan. It was historically a market town in the county of Essex and formed the administrative centre of the liberty of Havering, until it was dissolved in 1892. Good road links and the opening of the railway station in 1839 were key to the development of the town and the economic history of Romford is underpinned by a shift from agriculture to light industry and more recently to retail and commerce. As part of the suburban growth of London in the 20th century, Romford significantly expanded and increased in population, becoming a municipal borough in 1937 and has formed part of Greater London since 1965. It now forms one of largest commercial, retail, entertainment and leisure districts outside central London and has a developed night time economy.

There are number of great food takeaways in Romford, but the ones that I would like to point out are: New Wok Inn, Top Chicken, The Top Pizzas, Pizza King, Pizza Go Go RM1, Base Pizza and Taj Mahal.
