I often go here when in Shoreditch. It was a good weather on this Sunday in May and we sat outside on the bench tables - lovely in the sun! Inside is quirky and interesting, particularly the wallpaper and lampshades! Later in the day we...More

The rudest red haired bar man making cocktails I have ever encountered. Was offensive,mocked me and my partner all because we requested some soda water in the awful cocktail he made. Will not return.

From the outside, this place looks pretty run down, but inside it has unorthodox decor, a large variety of beers and cheap pizzas. Such a nice and quirky place to go for drinks and food with friends

This place is such a gem! Really cosy and love the decor. Toilets are very clean. Has plenty of space too with an upstairs. Yet to try the food!

Quirkiest and friendliest pub I've been to in ages. Any pub that serves real ale, has good cheap pizza and plays Bob Dylan is fine by me. Service was gret as well.

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.
