Resident of Paradise Row

Time Out says

A cocktail bar, restaurant and purveyor of beers on Paradise Row, just up from Bethnal Green tube. It certainly looks the part, with its high ceiling arching over chesterfield sofas, a statement bar and dining tables and chairs with more than a hint of the 50s about them. There's a mezzanine level too, and sunlight streams through floor-to-ceiling windows during the day.

There's a modern-European feel to the food menu. Dishes range from a Devon crab salad or potted pork with cornichons and soda bread to whole roasted sea bass with salsify, crispy shallots and burned lime, and Gloucester Old Spot pork belly with kale, cherry tomatoes and a garlic and mustard mash. Breakfasts - with many items smoked in-house - prove popular. 

The drinks selection features a range of classic cocktails, including house margaritas, daiquiris and old fashions, as well as an 'ethical' espresso martini - made with Fair quinoa vodka, Fair coffee liqueur and coffee from Counter Coffee, just round the corner. A decent wine list and bottled beers are also on offer.

Keep an eye out for Sunday roasts and generous feasting menus, priced per person.

A wonderful place to sit, drink and/or eat with friends. Food is fantastic, I haven't even tried the roast and apparently they do brunch now too, and let's not even talk about the drinks! It really is like your home away from home. Worth the trip whatever the weather!

Resident, along with the other restaurants and bars lining Paradise Row, is giving Bethnal Green a great vibe. Couple that with the reasonable prices and fantastic quality and Resident is a welcome addition. My only regret was not ordering the pork belly...

Lovely vibes, great Sunday roast, and very delicious wine!! Oh and the chocolate cake. Can't wait to get back to London for another visit here.

I recently had the pleasure of enjoying an incredible sunday roast here and the whole experience far surpassed my expectations. The food was absolutely delicious, excellent choice of drinks and the staff were absolutely fantastic. It was for my sister's birthday and the staff easily handled a group of 30+ on a busy afternoon. It would help that we had glorious weather but I imagine even in less favourable weather conditions, you could not but thoroughly enjoy a visit here. I came to London from Ireland for the weekend and I certainly plan another visit on my next trip!!!

Recently 24 friends and I celebrated my birthday at Resident of Paradise Row. We had a sit down meal upstairs, with lots of drinks, easy mingling and great food, the works. The food was delicious (I had the green bean bruschetta, followed by the pork belly, both of which still haunt my dreams), the staff were absolutely lovely (really welcoming and attentive), the venue was spacious, with a great view over the bar. I had such a good night and can't thank Daniel and his team enough.

Some of the best staff and food in Bethnal Green. And don't get me started on their cocktails. Wooo ha. This place is one of my favourites! All year round they deliver the goods!
