Wringer & Mangle

10 user reviews 5

East End drinks maverick Gerry Calabrese is behind this London Fields favourite known for its artistic edge, vast all-weather terrace and boundary-pushing gin cocktails. Head chef Oisin Coyle offers a menu balanced with healthy and hearty dishes, with visitors checking in for brunch, afternoon tea and roasts come Sunday. Reclaimed woods, ivy plants and flickering lights create a charming atmosphere at this cool Hackney restaurant.

Rehab

A favourite in Homerton for its undeniably cool vibes and laid-back atmosphere. Set in a former launderette, Rehab comes awash with cosy, candlelit tables and an intimate atmosphere making for one perfect little place to eat some of the best vegan food in Hackney.

Hand Of Glory

Decked out with giant maypoles, branches on the ceiling and feeling like you've stepped into the pages of Narnia, Hang Of Glory is a glorious East London pub where you can tuck into delicious nosh in its unique setting. The menu is of the British persuasion with a famed Sunday Roast, or grab a piece of their Wild Dog pop up menu. 

Martello Hall

Serving delicious Italian food from breakfast until dinner, this stylish restaurant in Hackney is the perfect place for a date night or dinner with friends. With a fantastic cocktail list to boot, not to mention a gin distillery on site, it's one of the most exciting eateries in East London.

The Last Tuesday Society

One of the undeniably most quirky restaurants in East London, the weird and wonderful world of the chap Viktor Wynd comes to life in his Museum of Curiosities. Dine on tapas dishes next to taxidermy lions, skeleton models and among some riff raff decorated walls. Atmosphere certainly doesn't go a miss here, that's for sure. 

People's Park Tavern

Probably the best loved local restaurant in Hackney that's more of a pub physique than anything, People's Park Tavern is a top pick for delicious gastro style grub in a relaxed setting. Taste the likes of modern British cuisine here with big roasts, hearty mains and swing by the beer garden for some alfresco dining experiences.

Hackney has Gotto Trattoria for all of its Italian needs, all while resting on the banks of the River Lee. They serve up plates of delicious European and Italian food, all while blending the flavours with British twists. When the sun comes out, sit in their alfresco dining area and drink some of the signature bottled negroni, and you're guaranteed a good time.
