Despite looking like just another old-school footie pub from the outside, the King's Arms in Bethnal Green – located on a quiet residential street – confounds a barrelload of expectations. Dimly lit like a Brooklyn dive bar, boasting a rotating selection of craft beers and with chic wooden trimmings, it should by rights scream 'hipster haven'.

Yet this isn't a pretentious hangout. It's the perfect update of a local community boozer: its clientele reflect all shades of local life, regardless of whether they follow the King's Arms on Instagram or not. It’s all about craft beer here - plenty of it on tap, from new-wave IPAs to comforting bitters and jet-black stouts.

Beautiful pub just off from the main road in Bethnal Green. Great selection of beers, quiet during the day but gets really busy in the evening. The only downfall is the lack of food, they do small meat or cheese boards but nothing substantial.

One of the few occasions where the 'gentrified refit' has worked nicely. I remember it before and it was a dive.

14 keg lines and 6 cask of ever changing craft beers at the best prices in town. Great staff who actually know what they are selling and don't think they are too cool to have an actual conversation. Top notch.
