“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”.

“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”.

“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”.

For 30 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).
