Square Meal Review of The Water Poet ?

A cosy, homely kind of boozer with an added funky edge, The Water Poet is an unpretentious dive for City boys & girls to carouse amid velvet drapes, cherubs & leather sofas that encourage extended stays. Pounding music ensures that no one nods off during the evening, although the assembled crowd are usually preoccupied with knocking back draught ales such as Meantime & Doom Bar, as well as decently priced, sub-£25 wines from around the globe. Peckish punters can order ‘good, honest food’ such as steak sandwiches on focaccia, Aberdeen Angus cheeseburgers, various themed sharing boards & ‘indulgent’ puds; the Poet also does ‘huge’ Sunday lunches. If the sun’s out, make a beeline for the terrific garden area before all the seats are taken.

  1. After having a few mini heat waves this summer in London, a pub lunch was in order. Working close to Shoreditch and Liverpool Street, it’s hard to find a pub with a large outdoor beer garden that serves delicious food. In my search to find the perfect place, I stumbled across The Water Poet which is situated a few streets away from Liverpool Street station. From the exterior, The Water Poet looks to be a normal pub but the place has a quirky interior with many rooms and funky decorations on the wall which carries on to the outside beer garden...
