Located smack-bang in the middle of Shoreditch and Spitalfields lies the institution that is "The Ten Bells" pub.

This iconic venue has existed in one guise or another since the middle of the 17th Century. Expect all walks of life in this bustling classic boozer at any time of the day or night. Beyond the listed tile work and villainous history lies a solid and well respected pub with an excellent range of quality beers and decent Bartenders.

Jostle in with the crowds downstairs or climb a further floor to find comfortable seating and a unique atmosphere where you watch the world go by on the streets below. Whether you are looking for Beer, Wine or Cocktails, The Ten Bells has it all with a touch of class yet still understated much like its reputation.

We had a fantastic night! The room is beautiful and more than I could have hoped for. The female bartender (sorry forgotten her name) was superb. Her speed of work is impressive and she was so friendly and helpful. This goes for the GM as well. Food was great as well. I would recommend this space to anyone. Thank you so much.

We held a private party in the upstairs bar for 30+ people - it's a lovely room and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. A great selection of drinks, food was excellent and it was straightforward to sort music through a playlist on a phone. All our guests had a very good time. Highly recommended!

Booked the Upstairs Lounge for a party for 20+ guests. Location was private and comfortable, service was impeccable, and food & drinks were excellent. Pricing was reasonable, too. Everyone was impressed and I've been recommending Upstairs to anyone who'll listen. Sean visited The Ten Bells on 02 Sep 2016

We had an booking for 30 people in the cocktail lounge, the staff were super friendly and accommodating, and did a brilliant job juggling a busy bar on one of the hottest nights of the year! Thanks guys, highly recommended!

Great pub and very friendly and helpful staff. I booked a private room for a function and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. Highly recommended, and will go back. damiendemolder visited The Ten Bells on 21 Jul 2016

Love the Ten Bells. We organised a small exhibition/music launch party upstairs in the lounge. Really nice, intimate, relaxed, living room style space. All of the staff were extremely accommodating and supportive. Kipps visited The Ten Bells on 28 Apr 2016

I hired the Lounge room upstairs for my birthday and the set up was perfect. Holds about 25-30 people with its own bar. The staff were super helpful and friendly and the room is lovely, feels like a living room. Would 100% recommend it.

I booked a space in the ten bells upstairs to watch the rugby. The venue contacted me to say the screen wasn't working but they had put us at a table downstairs. All really easy to arrange and all was according to plan. Awesome place, love it. ange24 visited The Ten Bells on 06 Feb 2016

I booked the Lounge on the 3rd floor for drinks with about 25 friends last Saturday - I highly recommend this option! Great little room, very cosy. We had a dedicated waitress and the whole team was very friendly and organised (although it would have been nice to have more champagne flutes :) Everything was set when we arrived and I could plug in my Iphone to have my own music in the room. This room feels like having a party at home but without the hassle! missbelsize visited The Ten Bells on 21 Nov 2015

It's so refreshing to find a quality London pub, awesome selection of beers and a really surprisingly good wine list. Downstairs is your classic boozer whilst upstairs has a really cool vibe and lots more seating which I appreciated after a long day and really friendly staff! Definitely worth getting to know this pub!

Very happy to see that the this place pop up! We loved what they had done by making the interior quite classy, but with a twist of modern. I'm not going to go into the cocktails as I will be here all day! Worth a visit!

This place is awesome. Really cool vibe in a cool area of town. The cocktails are great too, with classics and shortys which pack a punch. I will be going back

Amazing service, great, attentive, knowledgeable staff, cool vibe, fun atmosphere, quirky design, furniture and the shorty cocktails were amazing. I loved the cocktail list, and this hidden gem is so conveniently located. I couldn't recommend it more. Have any cocktail and the pork scratchings - yum. Enjoy!
