Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Anyone who’s been to a night at Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club will know that you don’t go there for the décor or the sparkling service. It’s trashy and it smells bad, but the nights they put on are a lot of fun. Thankfully the club’s new dining room has no nasty niffs, and on our visit the service was both friendly and attentive.
The menu features homely brunch dishes, a mix of British and Mediterranean mains, such as calf’s liver and mash or provençal-style fish stew, plus roast dinners on a Sunday. Our belly pork was served with a decent strip of crackling and tender meat, but the roasties were a little soggy, and the gravy was thick like Bisto.
It’s a fun place to pop in if you happen to be in the area, but the cooking is more home-style than restaurant standard, unlike the prices.
