    Great pub! Famous for a Jack The Ripper murder. Ask if they have Bibble on tap.

  • Anna W.

    Sometimes hit, sometimes miss. Traditional decor and a Ripper history. But can smell of old louts..

    Anna Wallace · December 14, 2014
  • Ashley G.

    Great range of beers and a few Jack The Ripper stories to go with them. Shame they took down the name board of the rippers victims as it named 6 people instead of 5 as it is generally told.

    Ashley Gay · October 21, 2014
  • Emma M.

    A lot if history around this bar. Staff are lovely. Always meet new people here!

    Pretty good beer selection. A bartender was nice enough to help me find an IPA since I didn't know any of the brands here.

    Toilet fun

    Had anniversary dinner upstairs and food is interesting and high quality, service was personal and attentive. Dining room is quirky and has interesting art. Only drawback was some noisy guests.

    Fredrik Lindmark · June 30, 2014
  • Chip W.

    Jack the Ripper found his victims here! Must have a pint. Then go across the street to the market.

    You have to love The Ten Bells. Great pub, good location and you feel like you are part of the Jack the Ripper tours!

    Amazing restaurant upstairs

    Awesome little pub, bound to history with its links to Jack the Ripper. Check out all the graffiti in the toilets too

    Steven Power · May 25, 2013
  • Omar C.

    Buttermilk chicken, pigs ears & the lamb are finger licking good

    Omar Campos · May 17, 2013
  • debra d.

    Nice food, but not enough of it. Couple of slices of venision, butternut squash (which was a light mouse), some more vegetables would have been enough to make it.

    debra duncan · April 13, 2013
  • Katherine N.

    Plays Alt-J. Can't be bad.

    Katherine Norman · March 19, 2013
  • Daniel M.

    Be warned, this place does not admit children, not even at midday on a Saturday. Bar staff not great at explaining the policy either, just a plain "no children allowed". Like it's a crime.

    Daniel Morris · January 19, 2013
  • Dave

    The pub features in the movie "From Hell" (2001) and includes a scene with Inspector Abberline, played by Johnny Depp, having a drink with Mary Kelly the last victim of Jack the Ripper

    Very nice pub, can get quite busy in the afternoons

    Nice pub, iconic with Jack the Ripper association. Pop now a more regular British modern resto upstairs at the ten bells not to be missed, great food. Full review... Read more

    Odo · September 4, 2012
  • Mr J.

    Food is ridiculously overpriced and unreasonably pretentious. I rarely leave a bad review, but this place deserves the worst of thoughts. I hope they choke on my money. P.s: waiters are really kind.

    Mr J · September 1, 2012
  • G D.

    Underwhelmed by the food. Not particularly good value. Average flavours!

    G Dizzle · July 18, 2012
  • Stuart C.

    One of the best pubs in the area for street drinking in the sun, though be prepared to be approached by many of the local characters. Oh, and don't forget to stand inside the chalk line!

    Stuart Cruickshank · July 15, 2012
  • George J.

    This pub is directly opposite Old Spittalfields Market and is steeped in Jack the Ripper history .... see below

    Young Turks Crew is running the Restaurant in the first floor until the end of April.

    Hold breath when going to the loos downstairs!

  • Jonathan P.

    Get a Truman's Bitter. And avoid the Jersey girls.

    Jonathan Pam · October 19, 2011
  • Joe W.

    Lovely pub and like to go there again soon.

    Joe Watson · September 29, 2011
  • brian f.

    I'm not so sure about the refit as too mnay people perch themselves at the bar blocking you from getting served.

    brian fernandes · July 20, 2011

    In this bar they know everything there is to know about Jack the Ripper! Come find out the names of his victims and enjoy a beer in this bar dating from 1752. · July 15, 2011
  • Solveig O.

    They've done the place up since I went first. Doesn't have an awful lot of indoor-space but looks nice + you can stand outside to enjoy the life round Spitalfields market. Read more

  • Jeremy M.

    busy after work pub, good buzz, nice outside in the sun Read more

    Cambridge hipsters living their east London dream. Avoid.

    Careful when walking down the rickety old stairs. Don't fall on your arse.

    ben brazier · March 27, 2011
  • Adam F.

    Literally one of the best pubs in London! Barely changed since the days of jack the ripper, gets lively at the weekend, get yourself here!

    Adam Faux · March 19, 2011
  • Emma Jane W.

    The refit doesn't even warrant a comment and I am with an architect! So there
