We visited the Globe and watch a productions. The White Swan offered us good beer and a great patio from which to people watch. We didn't eat any food here but the service was great, the patio was comfortable and the beer was good.

Nice Shepherd Neame pub at the eastern fringe of the city. Nice choice of real ale, pleasant surroundings and ideally located opposite the excellent Halal restaurant. What more do you want.....

I had a great moment there celebrating my birthday. Waiters are very friendly and welcoming. If you want a good atmosphere and not being in a crowded place, I recommend to go there.

Whether you're here for its dynamic street life, world
class galleries or famed curry houses, you're bound to
be wowed by the uniquely cosmopolitan flavor of
Whitechapel. Long gone are the days when Jack the
