Local boozer – you can't miss it because it's painted bright orange.

The Bow Bells says
A fantastic East End boozer in the heart of Bow!

We are very proud of our high-quality gins, and tantalising single malt whiskys, alongside our great range of real & craft ales. Why not indulge in our delicious, freshly made, stone baked pizzas too! A slice of the traditional, with a modern twist!

Cracking old school pub. Lovely atmosphere. Really interesting characters will be found here. Aaron the landlord is lovely, food is great and they run a nice comedy night upstairs once a month. Overall, a solid pub.

This pub is a great local meeting/drinking/dining place (and you won't want to leave). It's run by a great Manager and his team. Very polite and efficient service with a wide selection of drinks as well as lovely food. You have to try a Pizza soon...! Also shows all the sports you can wish for. Love this place. Well done!

I usually pop in for an early evening beer after an afternoon out , en route home - always brilliant service and respect for a lone female . Aaron runs a tight and great ship , Regina 

Great pub with good range of beers and ales, and the food, especially the pizzas, are amazing! Great atmosphere inside, with friendly and funny bar staff who are keen to welcome people into the fold. Also, dog friendly as well- they have water bowls for parched pups behind the bar you can ask for, as well as a topped up box of dog treats. They have seating out the front for sunny days, as well as a little colourful nook out the back. Never had a bad night in here!


Acclaimed as one of the most haunted pubs in London, The Bow Bells pub is the definition of a 'local' pub in the East end. 

The pub offers trivia nights and great place to grab a pint and watch a sports game. 

If you are into the paranormal - check out the Women's loo where there is an old newspaper clipping reporting on the haunting and supposedly a spirit that haunts the toilets. 

Fantastic East End boozer! Well kept ales and friendly locals. If you want a no fuss, no "hipster" pub to enjoy a proper pint in the East End, look no further than here!

Aaron and Co are always welcoming and their cabbage risotto is the finest in Bow! Possibly the only in Bow.


Gets better n better: recent additions: great pizzas and a wood -burning stove. Something tells me I'll be spending more time here ;0)
