There's more than a hint of the gastropub about this busy Bow boozer, with Sunday roasts proving particularly popular. The pub dates back to the late nineteenth century, and while there are a fair few aesthetic nods to its past, the modern artwork, covered al fresco decking and recent lick of paint keep things contemporary.
Although much of the produce is sourced locally, the food menu takes its lead from a variety of cuisines. Expect, therefore, Italian charcuterie boards and coq au vin alongside Thai beef salads, pork bellies with anise and carrot purée, pumpkin and ricotta ravioli and 12oz rib-eye steaks.
The wine list focuses on the old world, with wines from Spain, France, Italy and Portugal dominating. There are a few organic options, too. Beer comes from five hand-pulls, with drops from London Fields Brewery, Truman's and Hackney Brewery alongside the odd guest. Bottled options include Brooklyn, Anchor Steam and plenty from local brewers, Redchurch.
