This pub and kitchen in Houndsditch opened in September 2016 but it's been dressed up to look like it's been there for years. That means Chesterfield banquettes, promotional mirrors from yesteryear and Victorian imagery on the walls. But don't worry, there's plenty of exposed lighting and brickwork, too.
Food options range from barbecue wings, salt and pepper squid and mezze boards to burgers, sandwiches, subs, truffled mac n cheese and a range of hand-stretched, stone-baked pizzas. Drinks wise it's wines from worlds old and new, recognisable cocktails and real ale, on draught and by the bottle.
Keep an eye out for deals on both booze and food.

Met up with the girls here last Friday and had a really good time. First off, my friend was able to book a table for drinks so it was nice to have a seat in a busy bar on a Friday night. Service was also very good as we were looked after a cute waiter who made sure we had everything we needed. A DJ, nice atmosphere and half-price prosecco all night was a total bonus. All in all a pleasant surprise and makes a nice change from the big cattle-market chain bars in the area.
