Cold…refreshing…downright delicious. Is there anything better than that first pint at the end of a long day?
Well, we’ll wager there is actually. A pint in one of our favourite pubs. Something about the vibe in these places just makes the pint taste better. Trust us.
Sure, there are plenty of decent boozers in Shoreditch, but these ones stand above the rest. See you down there, where everybody knows your naaaaaaaaaame.
1. Old Fountain
3 Baldwin St, London EC1
The Old Fountain is positively brimming (geddit?) with craft beer, many hailing from London breweries. In fact, their selection is so impressive, they’ve won a CAMRA beer award. This is a family owned pub, and has been since the 60s. And you know what? You can really tell. It’s cosy, traditional and refreshingly unpretentious.
2.The Well and Bucket
143 Bethnal Green Rd, London E2
If you like oysters, beer and old-school Victorian tiling then this is the place for you. The Well and Bucket has a killer food menu, rivalled only by its impressive beer list. Think Chouffe Houblon Dobbelen IPA Tripel and Rogue Santa’s Private Reserve. And, should you tire of beer (perish the thought) there is a cocktail bar downstairs.
3. Dirty Dick’s
202 Bishopsgate, London EC2
Squeezing through the throng of gregarious nine-to-fivers to get to the bar is well worth it here. Sure, Dirty Dick’s may be packed most nights but to drink here is to drink in history. The story of Dirty Dick dates back to the 1800s and is said to have inspired Charles Dickens when he penned the character Miss Havisham. The booze, luckily, is equally as noteworthy.
4. The Owl and Pussycat
34 Redchurch St, London E2
Wooden floors that creak like an old ship, cosy interiors and a glorious beer garden combine to make The Owl and Pussycat a heavenly setting for imbibing. It’s laidback, fun and has a cracking offering of pub grub and draught beer. What more could you ask for?
Wish you could spare the Uber fare after a night out in one of these fine establishments and simply walk home?
