The Astronomer Pub is not far from the Bishop's Gate Exit of Liverpool Street Station. Very busy Pub on a Friday with a relaxed vibe. Love the decor and friendly staff.

We enjoyed a 'Steak and Ale' Pie Lunch in this Pub very recently and it did not disappoint both taste and price wise. The location on Middlesex Street is very historic and the atmosphere is extremely pleasant - very close to Liverpool St Station.

stopped here for drinks before going to the London steak house, but I wish I had eaten here instead and I will next time, really nice looking place and nice menu. Drinks were really good

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.
