We tried the Sunday roast for dinner. Never have I tasted anything like the chicken roasted in butter. It is unbelievably good. Do yourself a favour it is chicken like you’ve never had before. I’ve never seen this before and probably never will again it...More

Great pub to come to for a Sunday roast. The food was great and the atmosphere was very relaxed and homely; perfect vibes for a good meal and chat with friends.

Came here for a birthday dinner. Ordered everything on the menu. Porkkchops, sea bass , chicken. Great service. Food was absolutely horrible. After all we went through to get reservations. Good luck.

Dinner downstairs with colleagues. Serious price for a glass of unremarkable wine. Fried fish was very greasy and tasted like from frozen. Peas too salty. Chips were good. noise made talking an effort even when the crowd thinned out.

What a lovely place to meet friends for lunch. It’s small, but not overcrowded. The tables are low (for a big guy), but there’s enough elbow room. Service for drink was a little slow, but service in general was good. Despite being located in very...More

Had an excellent meal. Server was great at recommending beers to try. Finished the meal off with a wonderful cheese plate.

The western front of the edgy East End, Shoreditch is
a perennially trendy haven for anything “street” – be
it art, food, or fashion. With its handful of well
connected transportation links dotting its perimeter,
along with an ever increasing variety of shops,
hotels, bars, and restaurants, it's easy to explore
this trend-conscious and youth-oriented neighbourhood.
There's a lingering post-industrial grit about
