“The lovely first-floor dining room is a particular favourite” at this thoughtfully converted Spitalfields gastropub with its own rooftop garden (complete with summer BBQ). “Friendly” and “unpretentious”, its cooking pleases all reporters (but misses the raves it once attracted).

“Always buzzing” Spitalfields gastropub, with the rare option to eat (in summer) “in the rooftop garden where they grow veg and herbs”. Cleverly converted from an old corner boozer three years ago, it inspired mixed feedback in its second year but scores have recovered their mojo of late, with some reports of “very good” cooking.

An “inventive” approach helps win fans for this Spitalfields two-year-old – a wittily updated old corner boozer, with a more upscale dining room over the happening bar. However, it’s not the fave rave it was when it first burst on the scene.
