    cosy pub with excellent beer and lovely cottage pies, seconds away from busy and adorable brick lane. sunday roast and scotch eggs are also a safe bet.

    Although a little tucked away, this is a popular place, often being standing room only. Perhaps it's the great selection of international beers and the fantastic food (try the bunless burger!)

    The Kray's old hangout! Lovingly restored and saved from extinction, now has the best Sunday roast in the East End on offer. Is the bar top still made of coffin lids? Only one way to find out... Read more
