Tips from locals
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.
Our favourite local is called The Approach Tavern, which is a 3 min walk from the flat, on Approach Road – really laid back, proper British pub vibes!
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.
