    The Londonist Says…

    The Well & Bucket is both one of the East End's oldest pubs, and one of its newest. It was in the pint-pouring business from 1818 until 1989, but for the past quarter-century, it's traded as a restaurant and, latterly, wholesale shop. Now, it has reopened thanks to Barworks, whose other notable pubs include The Black Heart in Camden Town, the Slaughtered Lamb in Clerkenwell and the Electricity Showrooms at the other end of Shoreditch.

    You’ll find delicious blondes, bitters and pale ales on draught, supplied by local brewers and beyond – this pub is a proud part of the real ale renaissance. Just as vital at this laid-back, hipster hangout is the food menu, which holds oysters – a retro classic – as a top option. It’s the oxtail chilli cheese fries (yeah, you heard us) that’ll keep you coming back, though.

    The Victorian tiling was once noted across London for its splendour; it now looks a bit battleworn, but is brilliantly atmospheric. Close your eyes and you can imagine the place packed with porter-drinking, pipe-smoking, H-dropping Cockneys of yesteryear. Phantom East Enders might be a bit unfamiliar with the huge array of craft beers on offer, which includes about 18 on tap. The fine selection ranges from Kent’s Caveman Brewery Citra to Little Creatures from Western Australia.
