Square Meal Review of Apples & Pears ?

Open late, this low-key lounge and cocktail bar steers clear of the ‘cor blimey’ shtick implied by its moniker. Pick of the mixes are Flying Scotsman (a Monkey Shoulder whisky sour), the Latin job (a negroni manqué that substitutes Amaretto and Maraschino cherry liqueur for gin), and an aromatic sweet teapot punch called Mad Hatters (rum and Southern Comfort). Otherwise, drink wine (from £15), Prosecco, Sol, Tiger beer or draught Asahi in a small, gaily painted courtyard garden that avoids the need for smokers to mingle with Brick Lane’s curry touts. Food includes all sorts of flavoured popcorn, Asian skewers, samosas, various burgers with piri-piri chips, and sweet cupcakes. There's also a darkly intimate, brick-vaulted cellar, while DJ nights include a special ‘bloody Mary’ lounge party on Sundays, complete with deep house, dub and techno beats.
