Recommendations near the Jubilee line? [London]

I'm in London for the week with my six-month old daughter and realized this weekend that traveling to the far corners of London wasn't such a bright idea. We're staying in Canary Wharf so any recommendations in the area or within walking distance from the Jubillee Line or DLR would be greatly appreciated. I'm up for anything, and budget is not an issue, but it must be baby friendly. Oh, and I would LOVE a good rec for Indian.

  1. Hi, just thinking about buggies and babies and nice places to walk if someone gets a bit crotchety, how about the following places:

    Mudchute City Farm - a great spot for lunch, and all the cows, chickens and sheep you need to distract a nipper. I'm going there myself with my (nine-month-old) daughter in a week or two..
    Royal China and The Narrow - both on the boardwalk between Westferry Circus and Limehouse, both with outside spaces. Quite differing cuisines, but both have been amenable to children in past visits.

      Get the DLR to Cutty Sark and walk along the river to the Old Brewery. If the weather's nice, it's a lovely place to sit outside and eat. Or the Rivington further up in Greenwich, maybe the organic tapas place next door as well. There are a thousand and one buggys in Greenwich (it's a pretty hot place right now for yuppy babies) so you'll find it all very friendly.
