    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Iconic pub with a small but perfectly lovely selection of craft beer. On the Jack The Ripper tour, hence the Mary Kelly grafitti in the loo.

    The regular watering hole of two of Jack the Ripper's victims. Beautiful pub that has changed little since those Victorian days. Great real ales.

    The Bombardier is not to be missed. A bit flat (that's London for ya!) but still a great nutty brown barrel of rollicking ale!! "BAR TENDER!!"

    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

    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.

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

    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.

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

    Jack Estripador era habitué do local. Completamente compreensível visto a qualidade das cervejas. Three Weiss monkeys é deliciosa!

    Un clásico para tomarse una pinta, lleno de historia y con el añadido de saber que Jack el destripador estuvo aquí.
