Attended a private function here for approx 100 people. Great location and seating / floor space. Nice nibbles and friendly staff - overall a good business networking or social space.

Decent pub tucked away a stones throw from Liverpool St Station. Easy to get to, busy but not rammed, with reasonable prices. Bit of an old fashioned pub, so rather quaint!

Hi Sightsee15283653793 What a review! Made our day! There is a silver lining in this, though - if you started travelling through clouds and seeing space from a different perspective here at the pub, you might have been asked to leave to sleep that tequila...More

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.
