”A complete joy – a lovely venue”, proclaimed one fan of these brown-fronted, 17th-century listed premises, which scream tradition with their promise of ‘dinners and old wines, ports, game in
season, shellfish…’ The ground floor’s charming all-wood interior has a touch of the East End boozer about it, but things get more refined in the comfy upstairs dining room, with its shaker-style
design and green/beige colour scheme. Early risers can start the day with a fried-egg sandwich or full English fry-up, although the main menu leavens its patriotic offer of oyster fritters,
devilled whitebait and queen of puddings with some interlopers in the shape of beef carpaccio with artichoke and pickled horseradish, scallops with cauliflower couscous or braised pork belly with
sauerkraut and black pudding. The “extensive” wine list is a terrific read, with excellent tasting notes and some off-beat selections.
This grade II listed property's stunning panelled private dining space from the Christopher Wren era offers a comfortable space for 16 guests. Perfect for sit down private dinners or standing receptions with canapés, it comes complete with an open smokeless fire and is absolutely steeped in both history and character: a true one-of-a-kind in the Spitalfields area.
