A gastropub East End style - and that doesn't mean organic, corn-fed jellied eels and a gang of smoke ventilation engineers. The team behind King Eddie's have taken a Victorian public house, renovated it back to its historical best and whisked up a hearty, affordable menu of traditional, seasonal grub (homemade pork pies, venison stew and a ploughman's all feature). Low ceilings, panelled walls, etched glass, open fires and wooden settles make the downstairs a lovely 19th century period piece, whilst the airier upstairs is now an attractive sole-purpose dining room. There's an admirable wine list and the bar is never short on real ale - Tim Taylor, Bombadier, Broadside, Summer Lightning and Deuchars plus guests. Not to mention the open mic on Thursday and Quiz on Sunday. This is just the start of Olympics-led gentrification in Stratford - let's hope it's all as thoughtful as this.
