A proper old listed East End boozer dating back to the 1600's right in the heart of the New East End, The Owl and Pussycat is a laid-back palace of gastronomic joy with charm and personality to spare. A home away from home for locals and visitors alike who come to relax in our vintage leather sofas by the roaring fire in winter and soak up the last of the rays in our cracking terrace in the summer, whatever the weather there’s a warm welcome waiting along with the finest food and drink.

A glorious range of proper pub fare is whipped up every day by our team of talented chefs using only the freshest responsibly-sourced seasonal ingredients. We’re a damned fine pub so the bar is as brilliantly stocked as you’d imagine – refreshing lagers, traditional cask ales and a wide range of craft beers are backed up by a seriously tempting range of premium spirits and a wine list which is concise yet comprehensive so whatever your tipple we’ve got something which’ll knock your socks off.

Table service was a bit slow, however the roasts were great! visited The Owl and Pussycat on 19 Nov 2017

Best baby shower I could have asked for. Staff was very accommodating allowing me to decorate the space and tables with pink balloons etc :)! All my guests loved the venue! One friend commented it was the best baby shower she has been to (and she has been to 7!). 5 stars visited The Owl and Pussycat on 12 Nov 2017

Amazing! We went for a Sunday roast and could not have been more impressed - great meal, lovely atmosphere (even live music at the end of the afternoon) and very friendly and helpful staff visited The Owl and Pussycat on 12 Nov 2017

Reply from The Owl and Pussycat

Wow what a review!! Thank you so much, we are so happy you enjoyed your visit with us. Be sure to come in again over the Christmas period as it is sure to be a good one :)

Good food, there were no roasts left by time we got there but food we got was great, guy playing music was brilliant, good choice of beers. Perfect Sunday spot! visited The Owl and Pussycat on 29 Oct 2017

Reply from The Owl and Pussycat

Hey, to ensure you don't miss out on our roast again you can pre order with us! So be sure to come again soon

Good place (we sat upstairs, which seemed a bit better for a meal), and a really delicious Sunday roast. Staff were a bit at sea at times with our orders, but nice-enough people and it didn't spoilt anything. We would go back. visited The Owl and Pussycat on 08 Oct 2017

We went for a work social and had a reserved area and a tab. The staff were amazing and the barman always ensure we had our drinks top up. Friendly service and a cool lively venue. I would highly recommend to anyone. visited The Owl and Pussycat on 21 Sep 2017

We loved the pub but it was a shame that our reservation wasn't actually on the table and we had to stand whilst the staff kicked people off the table (felt a bit uncomfortable). visited The Owl and Pussycat on 06 Sep 2017

Reply from The Owl and Pussycat

Hey, my name is Hollie and I am the event manager here. Thank you kindly for taking the time to review your visit with us. I would like to apologise for the #awkstablegate situation! Just can't get the staff these days. I will personally ensure this never happens again to you or anyone else #maketheowlgreatagain

We visited The Owl and Pussycat for lunch on Sunday 6th August having made a booking previously by phone. When I booked I asked if a children's menu was on offer and I was told that there wasn't but that the roast dinners can be made as child portions. The pub was less than half full when we arrived and were told our table was upstairs. The table was great but it was a while before anyone approached us to take our order. When we made our order we asked about child portions of the Sunday roast and we were told that's not possible. I said I'd been told on the phone that this was possible and she went to check. We were then told it was. We were not asked if we wanted drinks and had to ask separately for these. When the food came it was mostly good, the gravy in particular was very tasty, as were the Yorkshire puddings (which is why I have rated our visit 1 star). However the roast beef was quite grissly, and my nephew's beef was very dry and tough - he couldn't chew it. The amount of vegetables we were given was disappointing, given that we were paying £16 each for a roast dinner. My sister's roast potatoes were basically solid and difficult to cut through! We were also surprised that Yorkshire puddings and gravy came as part of the meal as this was implied on the menu as having to pay for as an extra. When we asked about this we were not told they were part of the meal. Therefore we had to cancel our order of extras. All in all it wasn't a very successful lunch at the Owl and Pussycat, which was really dissappointing as I had heard good things about it, hence booking for my sister and family's visit to Shoreditch. If we hadn't had 2 very hungry and tired children with us we probably wouldve gone somewhere else. visited The Owl and Pussycat on 06 Aug 2017

Everything was great and we had a lovely time but the roast potatoes on all our roasts were like little rocks. They were really over done. visited The Owl and Pussycat on 21 May 2017

Great pub, upstairs is a little quieter with lots of seats. Sign up to their website for a free wine! Good place to start the night and staff are super friendly. xkerryx visited The Owl and Pussycat on 09 Feb 2017

Lovely pub with an equally lovely atmosphere. Totally Shoreditch, this place is nicely quirky, rather rustic and suitably priced. Expect lovely old exposed beams, low ceilings, uneven walls and odd nooks and crannies. With it's own beer garden (for if you like the outdoors) and a great selection of beers. A really lovely place to have a relaxing pint, I just adore this old building and that they have left this in it's natural state. Although beware, it can get busy after work hours and on weekends in the evening. I haven't tried the food, so can't comment on this!

Really always rate this pub when I head over to Shoreditch. Beer garden can always get a bit tight in summer because it is a bit small, but really enjoy a drink there anyway as the review below says, it doesn't seem to get wild with Shoreditch idiots

Really honest and humble boozer that doesn't seem to have been too touched by the Shoreditch scuttle happening now! Fun little beer garden and just a nice place to hang after a day at work. Top trumps!
