This is not London, if you're looking to escape the hustle and bustle and have a quiet drink with a picturesque view look no further. This place is a little secluded but is worth the journey. The house merlot is also worth a try (coming...More

Love it here.. great ale on tap, good food and nice staff on the first floor, a good eatery on the second floor, and if you're lucky, you might catch a glimpse of Gandalf. (no, seriously)

We visited this historic pub when visiting friends who live locally. The staff are charming and it is a quirky little historic pub. But one visit is enough. We booked to eat in the restaurant. It is a tiny space and very 1970s 'frumpy' in...More

I have not seen children in the pub. I would ring the pub and ask. The pub is old and therefore the stairs etc. steep and narrow, but that is part of the pub's character.

Whether you're after a quick lunch, a romantic dinner by the river or just a friendly greeting in your local pub, we'd love to welcome you to The Grapes in Limehouse. We've been recommended by The Good Pub Guide since 1996, and you'll understand why when you visit.Overlooking the Thames, in a peaceful neighbourhood not that far from the bustle of Canary Wharf, The Grapes is one of the oldest pubs in London. Charles Dickens was a patron, and even made reference to the pub in his novel 'Our Mutual Friend'. Whilst our history goes back over 500 years, our menus are a little more up-to-date! If you're looking for something quick and tasty like a pie and a pint, you'll find tempting pub grub downstairs in the bar. Upstairs in our intimate dining room you'll discover sumptuous white-linen service for both lunch and dinner. And if you're looking for a venue for your Christmas lunch, we have a feast Dickens himself would have been proud of.We look forward to seeing you soon. No under 18's allowed.
