Summary

“Still just about a pub”, this chef-run operation near Columbia Road Market is “way, way ahead of other gastropubs, and just gets better”. It serves “one of the best and most reliable roasts anywhere” – perfect after a trip to the flower market on Sunday morning – and “is sublime during the week, with great cocktails and beer selection”.

Summary

“Just an East End boozer it’s not” – this converted public house and dining rooms a short walk from Columbia Road has “an airy, modern and confident first-floor dining room, with food to make you smile and make you think”. “It’s nothing over-fancy, nothing over-priced”“taking dishes beyond what one would describe as pub grub”, although there’s “no better place for a relaxed Sunday lunch”.

Summary

“Ignore the hipster-beards!” – this “relaxed East End boozer serving top notch nosh” is “too good to be written-off as just-another-hangout-of-the-terminally-trendy!” “Impeccably cooked, thoroughly modern British dishes” are “cheerfully and efficiently served” and while “it’s always crowded”, “it’s got a good buzz, still feels like a pub (almost)” and “it’s great that its old character and charm still thrive”.

Summary

“The kitchen has a fine pedigree and has garnered excellent reviews” for this “achingly trendy” year-old, relaunched Hackney pub. Our reporters are very polarised though: to fans it’s “part pub, part gastro, with absolutely brilliantly fresh, interesting as well as classic combinations, accurately cooked” – to foes it’s “a case study of how the rise of East London can go really wrong – massively overpriced with bland dishes at stupid prices”.
