it is a great place to catch up with friends but recently with all these drug dealers around made this an unsafe place to visit to.

“People told me to go”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

A bit dirty but nice place to go meet alternative english people. I haven`t taste the food, but the music and the cider were just great. There`s a lot of places to go drink something on the neighborhood.

“Brilliantly quirky!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

LOVE this place. It's a bit of a Brick Lane institution, and there's a reason why. The food is delicious, and it's really cheap. There are plenty of veggie options - the halloumi & aubergine burgers are great, and everything comes with loads of nice salad. They also sell nice cold cans of beer, and have outdoor tables where you can sit and enjoy them (if you're going on a weekend evening, get there early or you won't find a seat.) Only word of warning - the toilets are a bit grim. Also, expect to be surrounded by hipsters in trilbies and red jeans at all times.
