The Last Tuesday Society

279 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. 

Gotto Trattoria

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.

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.

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.
