Conseils des habitants
East-end boozer and trendy drinking hole with well established contemporary art gallery on top. Worth a little jaunt through the park for a pint and some good traditional Sunday roast.
Very old typical pub just by the gates of Victoria Park, serving nice food for a cheap bite. It has always fresh lovely flowers and a cosy fireplace.
Long-standing gallery showcasing work by emerging UK and international contemporary artists.
