The Water Poet in Spitalfields is a hidden gem of a pub. With many strings to its bow, come here to lap up the sunshine in its ivy clad beer garden during the summer with a now legandary Spit roast bbq, or try out the Cinema and film nights that are hosted at this excellent shoreditch pub. A trip to The Water Poet is always a well worth visit. The Water Poet is a multi-tasking gem of a pub that boasts a large main bar, comfortable dining room, huge walled garden with barn, basement bar with cinema system, additional private dining room and separate pool parlour with two tables.

Sweet venue. Amazing beer garden out the back decorated in fairy lights and a really atmospheric mishmash interior complete with random, arty decor. Will definitely be coming back here this summer to sample the food.

Easily my favourite pub in London. An amazing beer garden, classic Sunday roasts, really good burgers and football on the big screen. Winner winner chicken dinner.
