    Nice place, cosy atmosphere, friendly baristas, good coffee, great burgers, reliable wifi, excellent place where to setup your "coffice" when you need to get stuff done with your laptop. I'll be back!

    Amazing place with great music and people :) Relatively cheap drinks and super spacious garden outside. One of the best places in Shoreditch for me to chill with a glass of wine 👌🏻

    A really nice bar and pub with a great outdoors area that's lovely in the summer. Plenty of seats, friendly service and nice atmosphere, this is a great pub to go to after work.

    Lovely atmosphere both indoors and out. Great selection of liquor and beer. Bar service can be slow but they always serve with a smile so it makes up for it. Burgers second to none.

    Probably my favourite bar in London. Easy, laid-back, out-door seating and great gins. Get the Pink Pepper Gin & Tonic. So good.

    From what I gathered, this is the unofficial "tech startup bar" of Silicon Roundabout. If you're from NYC, it's best compared to Tom & Jerry's but with an awesome / huge / beautiful outdoor garden

    Quite simply the best pub, garden, everythinig in Shoreditch. I'm quite biased after having spent the best part of 3 years having work breakfasts here but I don't care. Well deserved and fab staff. Read more

    Good bar/pub, decent selection of drinks and quite spacious. They probably have some kind of live events, as it does have a kinda small stage.

    They often have DJs on during the week. Grab a sofa and settle in for a night of funky music and good wine.

    Avoid the bleached blonde bar tender. Missed half our order, made out it was our fault, re-did it and 1 meal was still missing. When we complained we were told not to be rude.
