Staff were great at the bar (white wine offerings were not great though). When making a reservation I requested for an outside table if possible and was told it was fully booked, and possible a table may become free on the day. Turn up and found out it was booked exclusively, which was misleading. visited Apples and Pears on 16 Jun 2017

Reply from Apples and Pears

Thank you for your review. We don't offer the garden area for exclusive use - this is written on our website. Only the tables in the garden and lounge bar were reserved for that evening by different parties but guests were still welcome to go into the garden area. When you requested to be seated outside, we did make you aware via email that we only had a table available in the lounge bar and this was mentioned again on your arrival.

Venue is great. Hosted my engagement party here and all the staff were really helpful. Reggie and Kim who hosted us were easy to work with from start to finish. And Kim made sure the night ran without any problems. Since it was one of the hottest days (17th June) it was great to have a venue with working AC :). The bar staff were awesome with the drinks and if you are hiring out the basement bar like I did then you won't be disappointed. You can also play your own music or have whatever the DJ Is playing upstairs. Great bar, great hosts and great drink!! Mehul visited Apples and Pears on 17 Jun 2017

The happy hour cocktails were very small. You had to order two in order to have the size of a normal cocktail. The majority of the cocktails were nice (the classic ones). I didn't like one of the cocktails I ordered so I told the barman. His response was that it is the policy of the place not to replace the cocktails in case the customer doesn't like it. I was very surprised. His response was: "When you go to a restaurant and you don't like the food, do they bring you something else". The response is "Yes" when it is a nice restaurant. We ordered pizzas. The pizzas that got delivered there were very nice. I was surprised that the bar didnt have any plates for us. Overall I had a nice evening but I think there are some things that can be improved. visited Apples and Pears on 13 Jan 2017

Reply from Apples and Pears

Thank you for your review. However, we have to address a couple of points you made. The cocktail specials are the same quantity as all our cocktails as they have double measures so it's not true that they are small. In regards to the comment you said was made by the bartender, that's not our policy so our apologises if you were told this, this will be investigated. Finally, the pizzas that were ordered were provided from an external caterers and not ourselves.

Enjoyed a great birthday celebration at Apples and Pears. The staff were lovely and accommodating and offered me a round of birthday tequila shots on the house.

Apples and pears was enjoyable and the cocktails were great however, the area that turns into the dance floor needs to be better monitored. I reserved a table with my partner until the end of the night and by 12 pm,a group arrived who proceeded to throw their coats on the table where we were sitting, knocking over our drinks and began to get aggressive with us. Not one member of staff was around to help and it spoiled the night for us. visited Apples and Pears on 13 Jan 2017

Reply from Apples and Pears

Thank you for your review. We're sorry to hear your evening was spoilt by this. This wasn't brought to our attention on the night; if so, it would have been dealt with immediately as your table was near to the bar where staff and one of the owners is always present, plus, a member of security monitors the dance area. We will of course take on board your comment to ensure it doesn’t happen again.

I came here with my partner and was first impressed by the warm welcome we received upon our arrival from all staff. The bar staff were very knowledgeable about the drinks on offer in their extensive menu and even gave recommendations on what drinks would best suit my taste. I would say that the customer service was what you would expect in America. The evening got better and better with the DJ who who rocking out the best of R&B, I could have been at MOS. And to top it off, we met and got chatting with Reggie who is just a legend here at Apples and Pears. Well done team. I'll be coming again for sure.

Just wanted to say that Apple and Pears were absolutely fantastic on the Saturday just gone (10/12/16). Kim was fantastic in staying in contact with myself for all little needs for the party. Had a party of 35 people for our annual Christmas get together, and all very well accommodated. Cocktails were absolutely fantastic. Bar staff were brilliant. Was able to hook up iPad for our own music. Thanks to Reggie for the shot at the end of the night. Much appreciated. I would recommend anyone books a party at this venue. Nothing is too much. Will hopefully be using them again. David visited Apples and Pears on 10 Dec 2016

Good communications prior to our group visit, we were able to reserve a large table, and then get back the deposit cost later. Good cocktails, friendly staff,, skilled DJ playing tunes for everyone. It's a tiny place which means at times it's hard to find a space away from those over-drunk customers dancing on the tables! Strangely I felt quite cold as they'd left door to outside smoking area open all night. Overall a friendly easy-going place next to tube with free entry. visited Apples and Pears on 22 Oct 2016

Was here for my 30th birthday party. We had a fantastic time! Great cocktails, great music and had a super dance which I haven't done in a long time! Thank you so much! Good thing to note is you can order in food from a local Italian restaurant so we could line our stomachs with pizza while drinking our cocktails, which was very useful! The staff were wonderful! Cool place love the atmosphere small enough to feel quaint and big enough to have a good dance without having a million sweaty people to share the floor with! visited Apples and Pears on 14 Oct 2016

Me and friends sorted a 30th for our best friend. I don't normally write reviews but thought this bar was so great that I had to! The whole experience from start to finish was effortless but with an amazing end result.. Such a great space , great staff I cannot recommend this place highly enough for a party .. Also deposit is more than reasonable with the min spend totally reachable natasha visited Apples and Pears on 16 Sep 2016

Had my birthday celebration in a newly refurbished area of Apples & Pears downstairs - what an excellent venue for this! Space couldn't be more perfect: we had a great seating / standing area that was away from anyone else and fit about 30 of us with no problem, and pretty much an access to the bar to ourselves. Bartenders and staff in general was very helpful and made us feel welcome. DJ played an excellent mix of new and old school tunes. Couldn't have been more perfect, and considering a hassle - free booking & small deposit it's just perfect. Thank you so much to all the staff for making it s great one - we'll be back for more :) Nadia visited Apples and Pears on 03 Sep 2016

I arranged leaving drinks at this bar last Friday and had such an amaaaaazing time. I hadn't been before and just found it on DMN and what a find! Outside it looks unassuming but inside its decor it so kl i, it has a relaxed vibe and the staff are friendly. Me and my friends enjoyed the yummy cocktails and danced the night away till 2am. The DJ played a mix of old school 80-90's tunes which we absolutely loved too! I would definitely recommend going here for a good night out. sami visited Apples and Pears on 19 Aug 2016

I hired the basement area for my farewell party and no idea what to expect as I found Apples & Pears on DMN and hadn't actually been there before. The reviews were good and I have to say, I was really impressed. Everything from when we arrived to when we left was great - the staff were really friendly and helpful. The drink prices were really reasonable and the cocktails were delicious! The music was great and all my friends commented about what a find it was! We all had a fantastic night - thanks Apples and Pears!! If I was staying in London I would definitely be coming back to this bar more often! Mandy visited Apples and Pears on 12 Aug 2016

What a brilliant little find!! I reserved an area at Apples & Pear Bar for my Birthday drinks last Friday night (for 18 friends) and we had such a great time. The DJ and music was superb - we danced from 8pm to 1am when they had to close the doors. The staff and service here was excellent and the cocktails were delicious. Kim who took my booking was really efficient and friendly, and then on arrival Reggie was lovely and welcoming. I couldn't even believe they gave me back £2.50 remaining on my deposit as we hadn't spent it (of which I had to put in their tip jar). I would definitely go back here and will spread the word too. Good work A&P and thank you!! :) vigilante visited Apples and Pears on 05 Aug 2016

Apples and Pears bar is a great venue to hold a party for up to 70 people - it was a really hot day but nicely cool in the basement, the sound system was great and everyone I dealt with - Kim, Reggie, security and bar staff were all friendly and very helpful. I would definitely recommend this bar - its location is convenient and in a city where minimum spends can be a bit steep, it is affordable. The cocktails were fantastic too!

This place is very cool. I celebrated my farewell there last Friday and had a brilliant time. A genuinely fun vibe and a superb DJ mixing up best bits of 80s, 90s and noughties. Cocktails were delicious - recommend the chilli cocktail - boom! Added to the great drinks, they have a great service and the staff are really friendly. Top night!

We hosted a party at Apples & Pears to celebrate our blogs 5th birthday! From the initial enquiry through to the night itself the team were so accommodating and made sure everything went smoothly for us. The basement space is fantastic, super cool and had a fab sound system. The bar team on the night were amazing and made the night extra fun and kept the cocktails and good times flowing. Thanks to everyone at Apples & Pears - we highly recommend anyone holding a party here!!

Celebrated my birthday on Sat 12 March - we booked 8 weeks ago and got the last area with room for 15 people. Booking was simple and they were very helpful. We paid a £25 deposit which was then used towards drinks on the night. Amazing music, staff and bar men were very friendly, cocktails were yum and unique. The space is small and intimate with enough space for some serious moves on the dancefloor - perfect for our little group. We danced for 4 solid hours and all couldn't believe that it was 2am already when we had to leave. Definitely recommended!! Best night out in London. Yasmine visited Apples and Pears on 12 Mar 2016

Booked the downstairs for my retirement bash, great atmosphere. The whole booking process was made easy by Kim who kept in touch and answered all my questions and emails promptly. On the night Reggie was there and he and the other staff introduced themselves and made us all feel very welcome. The atmosphere and ambience was welcoming all round, friendly staff, varied music catering for all age groups - and not forgetting the door staff who were also very helpful. I would absolutely recommend this venue and look forward to going back there again. (There was a bit of a mix up with food ordering, but it was all worked out swiftly with no fuss) It's not about the mistakes, it's about how they're dealt with and they did great. cyclingme visited Apples and Pears on 15 Jan 2016

Booked a table for my birthday and had an absolute blast! I only wanted to stay for some cocktails and catch up with friends, however Friday night turned out to have some amazing old school tunes and we ended up staying till 1-2 am dancing away! Our table was really close to the bar, which was really convenient, the bar tenders were extremely nice and the drinks were top notch!

I booked A&up for my birthday and was really impressed by the friendly service. They reserved a spot by the bar and were really understanding when we arrived a little bit late. The evening was great; a fun atmosphere, great cocktails and really nice staff. The DJ is a legend and everyone had a really, really good time. It made my whole night a great way to celebrate and I can't thank them enough! A real gem in East London.

I hired Apples and Appears for my birthday, and... it was a brilliant night. I felt totally looked after by Reggie, on the night - the cocktails were great, and the birthday menus they came up with (unprompted!) were a nice touch. Kim was lovely (and extremely patient) throughout the booking process...

I chose this place for a small birthday do off the back of reading positive reviews on various websites and I'm pleased to add another positive review to the pile as well. Organising and communications with Kim were great and straightforward. I put down £25 to reserve an area for a Saturday night which I was told would either be refunded to me or used for bar spend (it was always going to be the latter wasn't it?!) Getting there is very straightforward from Aldgate/Aldgate East stations. The venue is quite intimate but this adds to its quality. The bar staff were very attentive and courteous (such a refreshing thing to see in London!) and particular thanks goes out to Reggie (I hope I've got the name right!) who was well, simply amazing. Always acknowledging me coupled with great bar service and the icing on the cake, a free shot! Just an all round top notch chap! I'm not usually one to shout about the DJs in bars, but the DJ on the night was simply epic. His choice of tracks and his mixing throughout the night was fantastic. He kept the crowd on their feet at all times and it's not often I see a DJ achieve that. I've never heard mixing like it. He wheeled out some real classics (with some hints of cheese as well - Haddaway and Ace of Base to name but two but these were perfectly intertwined with old school hip hop). Anyone who can mix all of that deserves a gold medal! There was a good mix of people in the bar and no hint of pretentiousness whatsoever. A really bouncing atmosphere. Good music, great staff, cool venue. I will definitely head back there again!

Absolutely brilliant atmosphere, great music and the most incredible service. We were guessing it was the owner who came over as we left and thanked us for coming and shook our hands which is such a nice personal touch. Not to mention the cocktails were incredible and so individual compared to most cocktail places! Wouldn't recommend enough.

This is a great little gem hidden at the end of Brick Lane. Very friendly staff and the bar tender is really passionate about his flavour matching, with spot on cocktail knowledge so can whip you up pretty much anything you fancy. Nice little escape spot in the garden removing you from the hustle and bustle of Brick Lane. Would recommended for chilled drinks mid week and cocktail enthusiasts!

I went to Apples and pears on a friend's recommendation for where to go for cocktails near the city. We were just looking to take clients out and show them a nice bar with nice drinks in a great atmosphere. This place had all that. Fortunately it was sunny so we sat outside in the cocktail garden and once the wind picked up moved in to the main bar. There was a DJ playing really cool tunes so we chilled on the couches in the back and it was perfect for us. It's nice knowing we have this place bc so many of the city bars can be stuffy! Totally recommend for client drinks and chilling and if you get tossed, you can even dance! It's pretty much got everything.

The bar itself is really nice and cosy. They have a lot of great cocktails really affordable, especially during happy hour!! However the bar was nearly empy on a friday night, quite unusual for Brick Lane !! The bar is really cool especially if you're looking for a place to chill out with friends before heading to the clubs!!
