This green tiled boozer at the end of Columbia road sits perfectly amongst the Sunday flower market. One of the last remaining East End boozers to hold tight to its authentic, quirky vibe, it’s also a favourite spot to hit for karaoke at the weekend. With slightly wonky locals jostling and joking side by side with East End cool cats, the outcome is both weird and wonderful and crazy-out-of-tune at times.
The thing to order is your typical pint or keep it drinkable with a mixer. With the one and only Andi Oliver (recent judge on Food Glorious Food) behind the food, you can expect good things coming from the kitchen whilst the space upstairs is something to keep a close eye on (they’ve got big tings a-comin). They’ve also got a pool table, but play by the rules and stick a coin down because you’re messing with the regulars if you don’t. It’s the kind of place to make friends and stay late… we also heard that Jay Z and Beyonce recently had a lock-in here - if it’s good enough for them it sure is good enough for us.
