Just wanted to mention a notable pub dinner I had a few weeks ago. The White Hart at 1–3 Mile End Road should not be confused with the other nearby White Hart on Whitechapel High Street. This one is recently refurbished and has its own microbrewery (One Mile End).
It also serves interesting, competent, and not overly expensive European food. I have written about it at greater length elsewhere, but wanted to flag it up here too. I visited it as part of a grand survey of nearly 30 pubs over the course of two weeks, and this was the one I’d most like to eat at again.
