Square Meal Review of Sebright Arms ?

It was a close call, but just when it looked as if the abandoned Sebright Arms was set to become no more than a Cockney memory, an influx of new brooms – and the eastwards sweep of Shoreditch gentrification – saved this old backstreet boozer for a new generation of appreciative drinkers. Skinny jeans, 1960s geography-teacher spectacles and fascinating facial topiary are the look, while ‘roll-out-the-barrel nouveau’ describes the decor. Meanwhile, beers from the capital’s new-wave microbreweries (Sambrook’s, Brodie’s, London Fields, Meantime et al) slake the thirst, alongside cask cider. Once attached to a Victorian music hall, the venue’s soundtrack is nowadays supplied by guest DJs and live bands in the basement, while comedy nights and life-drawing classes also have their fans. Food is currently in the meaty hands of burger barons Lucky Chip, whose 1950s American-style trailer is a much-loved East End fixture.

Lucky Chip can be found in Netil Market on Saturdays but this weekday evening we went to their permanent residence in Sebright Arms which is hiding on a side street next to Hackney Road. The random chairs and wall items inside were not a big surprise for a pub around here. It’s more random that the pub houses one of the better burger makers in the East or even London, or at least we were to find out whether that is the case...

  2. Lucky Chip has long sat in the top tier of my Top 10 list of the best burgers in London, and I've spent many happy hours spent chowing down on them both at Netil Market, and in The Sebright Arms.
