Came here with friends and unfortunately it's distinctly average. I appreciate the connection to Jack The Ripper, but I feel the vibe is something which could do with a bit of a refresh. We kicked the night off with a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc. Mistake....More

Nice pub in a nice place, spitafield market. At least, in London, a place where to drink cold and foamy IPA beers!

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.

Located smack-bang in the middle of Shoreditch and Spitalfieds lies the institution that is "The Ten Bells" pub. This iconic venue has existed in one guise or another since the middle of the 17th Century. Expect all walks of life in this bustling classic boozer at any time of the day or night. Beyond the listed tile work and villainous history lies a solid and well respected pub with an excellent range of quality beers and decent Bartenders. Jostle in with the crowds downstairs or climb a further floor to find comfortable seating and a unique atmosphere where you watch the world go by on the streets below. Whether you are looking for Beer, Wine or Cocktails, The Ten Bells has it all with a touch of class yet still understated much like its reputation.
