“Great food and even better banter” is why so many regulars “just have to keep going back” to this Bethnal Green greasy spoon, run by four generations of the Pellicci family since 1900. The unique wood-panelled Art Deco interior narrowly escaped destruction in a fire 20 years ago, and is now Grade II listed.

“You don’t come here for the food: the welcome and the banter are the main attraction!”, say fans of the Nevio family’s “buzzy” (but hipster-free) Bethnal Green greasy spoon, which is a top choice for a “simple breakfast”. Architecture anoraks will also want to examine its (listed) Art Deco interior (often used as a location for TV).

“It never changes and that’s the point” of a visit to visiting this well-preserved (hipster-free) greasy spoon in Bethnal Green, whose listed, Art Deco interior (much used in filming TV dramas) is a fine period piece. That “there’s always a special welcome” confirms its position in the hearts of its fans as “one of the best places in London for breakfast” of the traditional variety.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
