    I have previously had lovely weekday lunches here and today I had a Sunday roast and it was just as up to scratch! Traditional and tasty!

    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.

    Great pub. Fantastic beer selection, like Lagunitas IPA on tap, and food is tasty. Nice little outdoor area, too.

    Scotch egg and chips it is

    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!)

    Tummy food, had potted mackerel with gorgeous sourdough bread. Small + too busy at weekend to sit for a roast lunch.

    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

    Best pub in London! Tim Taylors Landlord on tap, the landlord knows what he's doing when it comes to beer. Used to be owned by the Crays' mother!
