The UK’s first certified organic pub is a great place to avoid the crowds, as it’s tucked some way down a side street off the Essex Rd where casual passers-by rarely tread. There’s a fantastic selection of beers and ales on tap, a great wine list and an interesting organic menu with a Mediterranean bent.

You can eat in the pub proper for a relaxed meal, or enjoy more formal service in the restaurant at the back (reservations are a good idea in the evenings).
