Square Meal Review of The Dispensary ?

The Dispensary was once just that – an early attempt to provide healthcare to the poor of East London. Nowadays its grandiose Victorian portals are in the business of dispensing food & drink, with a few precarious alfresco tables fringing Leman Street & a handsome, high-ceilinged bar & mezzanine within. One menu is now served throughout: potted ham hock with homemade piccalilli might start things off, before roast lemon & thyme chicken or côte de boeuf on the bone with braised shallots, salad, chips & béarnaise sauce. In a neighbourly gesture to the historic Lutheran church around the corner, the wine list includes a few Teutonic bottles such as a dry Riesling QbA from Weingut Robert WeiI or a 2005 Schloss Halbturn Pinot Noir; there’s Bitburger lager on draught, too.
