Here’s what Iain Sterling reckons is a perfect Sunday in Queen’s Park

11am: walking the dog

Sundays start off slowly. I walk my maltipoo, Mick Jagger, around Queen’s Park. There are no hills, so if you’re hungover or if, like me, you’re not very fit, it’s perfect.

Noon: a falafel fix

Queen’s Park Café makes these incredible falafel wraps. You have to wait a little while to get one but it’s worth it. I get pickles, tahini sauce, lettuce – everything apart from tomatoes because I hate the texture.

5pm: Keeping hydrated

There’s nothing better than a cold, fizzy pint in the sun. Volume is also very important. At Alice House I always know what I’m going to get: a perfect pint of Beavertown. The taste isn’t anything special, but I love watching them pull the pints because it has the coolest beer pump ever, with a little alien on it.

6pm: Stopping for sushi

Then I head over to Kiyoto Sushi up in West Hampstead. My favourite order is the black cod served in a lovely thick miso broth.

10pm: Telly and treats

I’m watching ‘Mare of Easttown’ at the moment and I’ll order in some Little Moons mochi. They’re the nicest thing you’ll ever taste.

Iain Stirling tapes his Amazon Prime stand-up special at the Alexandra Palace Theatre on the November 14 at 8pm, while the first record at 6pm is free for NHS workers. His sitcom Buffering premieres on ITV2 with a double episode on ITV2 on Thursday 5th August at 10pm. More info here.
