Stopped by for breakfast. Good sized portions, great choice with friendly attentive service. Kind of traditional decor. Will call in again next time we are in the area.

Had a nice Sunday lunch here. Food and service was good. Plenty of beers to choose from. This has an old skool pub atmosphere in an area full of restaurant chains. Worth a visit.

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.
