What an amazing venue this is. You can feel the presence of the music hall performers from days gone by. It is soooo atmospheric. The bar has such a nice feel to it and the pizza is delicious.

Amazing old building in the throws of being restored. You get a real scenes of history here. Bars serve good beers and cocktails. Pizzas are really excellant. Sadly the play we booked was dreadful. Still you can't have everything.

Tucked away gem of a bar that really makes you feel the East End vibe. We only had a drink with friends so didn't visit the theatre but definitely will in the future.

be wowed by the uniquely cosmopolitan flavor of
Whitechapel. Long gone are the days when Jack the
