    Book a table if you like to seat down. Security guy is not the most polite person in the world. Personally I didn't enjoy the place because of crowd but pies are definitely worth trying !

    Nice cozy music venue upstairs, though like most rock clubs gets a bit sweaty once the gigs get going.

    Gigs! Don't gather on the stairs like the rest of the fools, get up the left of the stage and get a great view and breathing room. Rough trade pub quiz on Mondays is a hoot.

    We went there randomly to watch a indie rock concert. Entry fee was reasonable at 8£ for three local somewhat famous bands. Recommended if you are into checking out the London underground rock scene.

    Fantastic, intimate & lively live music venue upstairs. Great sound. FYI if you're eating in the pub downstairs, avoid the taxidermy corner. It smells of damp dog & puts you off your food.

    Grab a beer before you head upstairs because they only have bottles.

    A London music stalwart, The Lexington has in the past played host to bands such as Foals and Peace. It also stocks a fantastic range of craft beers and hosts a regular quiz night by Rough Trade.

    Venue promoter known for booking soon-to-be-big bands early on - and there's a weekly music quiz run by Rough Trade East every Monday too. Multi-pack of crisps for the best team name. Nik Naks please.

    weekday lunch is half price, friday is the flagship indie disco, white light, and try the hirsch bourbon before it goes extinct, pricey but almost life affirming!
