Thank goodness they're open later. We needed to grab dinner after leaving the Dennis Sever House, and knew that if we hopped on the underground to head back towards our hotel, we'd not be able to find a place open that late. The bartender was...More

Maybe this was bad luck - the full english did look good, and should have had that if anything... And in fairness - the service was very good. But... Their hollandaise was disgusting and had obviously been sat under a heater too long. The muffins...More

Had a nice Sunday lunch here. Food and service was good. Plenty of beers to choose from. This has an old skool pub atmosphere in an area full of restaurant chains. Worth a visit.

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.
