  • Time Out

    Time Out Says…

    What makes this place particularly worth a visit is the impressive drinks, including a regularly changing array of 12 wines on tap, gin distilled on site and a swell cocktail list. An Apples & Pears Collins with pear vodka and homemade elderflower syrup was refreshing and tangy, like sucking on a citrusy peardrop. A Mexican Negroni with El Jimador tequila and Aperitivo Berto was rich and strong – a knockout. Should you come here hungry, you can munch on superlative, crispy-based wood-fired pizzas, with interesting toppings like honey and truffled pecorino (pizzas and snacks are also served through a hatch at the side of the building).

    Square Meal Says…

    Local beers, Italian artisan wines on tap and a louche first-floor cocktail lounge draw evening punters into the strategically distressed Edwardian premises (formerly The London Fields pub). Many of the cocktails depend on east London-produced booze, doctored with homemade tinctures, sherbets and cordials... Comfort food, served in a groovy Brooklyn-style diner out back and in the ground-floor bar, has Italian leanings: Bologna-style dumplings; and wood-fired pizzas with novel toppings (roasted squash and beetroot, say).
