2 Love It

The gentrification of trendy Redchurch Street continues as this former east-end boozer returns in a familiar gastropub guise. Fashionably mismatched Chesterfields, stripped tables and antique fittings furnish the lilac-coated main bar, which serves pints of Peroni and Heineken, a selection of four rotating ales, and wines by the glass.

Post-work, the pub can get uncomfortably crowded with designers from nearby agencies and itinerant City boys happy to pay the above-average prices, but ample seating in the well-heated rear terrace provides a useful retreat.

Upstairs, a Victorian-style dining room usually offers a British menu, though currently it is hosting a pop-up steak joint called Flat Iron.

Great pub with reasonably priced drinks despite what the Timeout review says. Staff are a good looking and very helpful bunch and the Sunday roast hits the spot (stump up the extra cash for the Cauliflower cheese. Worth it!). Only downside I've found which Timeout also call out is that the pub gets rammed downstairs. There's usually seating upstairs / in the garden tho.
