  • Smashing (and rare) beer garden in the City fringes. Food is also very good. Gets way too busy on a Friday.
  • Great good, a good selection of beers and a nice beer garden. Great location too!
  • With a large enclosed garden that serves hog roast most Saturdays and another sheltered, heated area for the winter, this is truly a smokers pub.
  • Love the ambiance! Food Price is okay!
  • Get this: Pub with good beer, good food, not too expensive, outdoor space, reservable tables, walking distance to/from 4/5 tube lines and it's right next to brick lane!
  • Fairly average. Packed with city types after work and the beer garden is just a concreted courtyard with little to make it welcoming. If you want sun, head to the Queen of Hoxton rooftop instead.
  • This trendy twist on a traditional boozer is one of the few places to soak up the sun near the City. The barbecue is currently in action weekdays and Saturdays from noon, weather permitting.
  • Favourite pub to come to on a Sunday if I'm in Shoreditch. The roast beef is a treat.
  • Try avoiding The Water Poet on Thursdays and Fridays as it is too crowded after work time. Altho on other days the garden outside is really nice.
  • Good beer garden, though very busy on a Friday night. Good beer selection and food is also decent here.
  • I love this place. Feels like home.
  • Same standard City faire; suits, shiny shoes and old men... but with an outside beer garden.
  • Great pub, deceptively massive with large garden space and pool tables.
  • Decent pub to watch football in, good beers and nice food too
  • The beer garden is definitely the highlight. Watch out for the mouse climbing the walls!
  • Chorizo and monkfish skewers dish is so good.
  • After a beer here you must visit Dennis hidden place across the steet. Mind blowing!
  • The security guy looks like Obama!
  • Thoroughly satisfying vegetarian roast & stockist of Little Creatures IPA, we'll definitely be back.
  • Ask for more gravy with the roast... A bit tight on the bisto
