SquareMeal Review of The Victoria Mile End

From the owners of The Stoke Newington Tea House and The Somers Town Coffee House, this reinvented Mile End boozer is a similarly eclectic proposition. Its Edwardian-style central bar offers cask ales, craft brews and a serviceable Châteauneuf-du-Pape among a dozen or so unpretentious European wines. To eat, daytime-only doorstep sandwiches and ‘British tapas’ – pigs in blankets, piri-piri hot wings, box-baked Camembert – join a menu of big plates such as pork or veggie bangers & mash, and cod and chorizo stew. A front room is given over to ‘Prince Albert’: a coffee shop evoking the Great Depression era. Cocktails are fun, taken in a 1970s caravan parked in a back courtyard, or a clandestine speakeasy. Called Magri’s, this honours Charlie Magri, the 1980s boxing champion who was once The Vic’s landlord. Screened sports, open-mic stand-up comedy, live music, board games, a rooftop garden and various function rooms complete the story.
