Kimberley Walker and hubby Ross Aitken are co-workers at possibly the most romantic pub in London. The couple delighted locals at The Victoria in Highgate by marrying just weeks after meeting when Ross landed a job there.

What do you like most about Highgate?

Kimberley: It's beautiful and safe. (Ross: ...compared to Hackney!) I can walk down the street at night and feel OK. And the people are really nice. More polite and friendlier than in other areas.

Ross: It's quite an easygoing place. It's nothing like Wood Green, where I lived for 11 years.

What's the worst thing about Highgate?

Kimberley: There could be a greater variety of shops.

Most Read

Ross: The local Wetherspoons at the Gate House. It doesn't fit with the atmosphere of the village. Highgate's been trying to keep out chains for years.

What's missing?

Ross: Practical shops. There should be a village shop where you can buy everything. Such as a laundry-basket. Where would I go for that now? It's full of little restaurants and pubs. I've never seen so many pubs in one little place.

What do you do in the area at weekends?

Both: Work!

If you were mayor for a day, what would you do?

Ross: Shut down the tube.

Kimberley: Clean the tube and make sure the buses come on time. When it rains you have to wait an hour. And I'd pass a law that Ross had to make me breakfast every morning.

4x4 or public transport?

Kimberley: Public transport - if it was regular. If I lived in the country I'd love to have a 4x4 and go off-roading on my farm.

Football or cricket?

Both: Cricket! Kimberley: I like the sound of willow on wood - it makes me sleepy. Actually I prefer MotoGP as a sport.

Where was your last holiday?

Kimberley: The landlady at the Victoria bought us a night and dinner at The Zetters in central London - that's the only holiday we've had together so far. We haven't had a honeymoon yet.

If you had a million pounds to spend in a day, what would you do?

Kimberley: I'd invest in a pub-restaurant in the country.

What is your favourite local shop?

Kimberley: I like the Oxfam bookshop.

What is your favourite restaurant?

Ross: Banners in Crouch End.

What tips would you give to people moving to the area?

Ross: Come to The Victoria! Highgate's most romantic pub.

What book are you reading at the moment?

Kimberley: I've just finished 'The Lies of Locke Lamora' by Scott Lynch. I'm about to start The God Delusion.

What would your epitaph be?

''Ross and Kimberley, who worked bloody hard together.''
