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.

Six Nations Guinness offer

This light and airy pub and restaurant near London Fields offers a great selection of seasonal British dishes, as well as craft beers, ales and great wines all available from the bar. Spanning two floors, there is also a terrace which offers spectacular views over Victoria Park. 

The Last Tuesday Society

168 user reviews 5

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

253 user reviews 4

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.
