    Longstanding Shoreditch favourite that's quite smug at non-peak times and has some fun club style nights upstairs. Can be overbearing if you just want a drink after work.

    The pint is cheap and the sound of pub is always good. I recommend stay here when you come to East London. I think it is one of the best options to drink around here.

    Stunning building. Real old historical boozer. Inside it's full of young trendy people. Look at the mirror art (for want of a better name) behind the bar.

    The beer will give you rabies and every time you see a band here you’re guaranteed to lose some of your hearing. That's why we you’ll see us DJing and putting on gigs in here. Awesome, awesome pub. Read more

    Dj's are inconsistent - wtf with electro mixed with shabba ranks? Just because they look the part doesn't make them any good.

    Com toda a certeza voltarei. A música ao vivo aqui é muito top, a acústica é boa e a performance é bem intimista. Só o preço da bebida que não é tãaao pequeno mas... vale a pena (:
