A boho arty farty bar in Whitechapel. 16 for 4 bottles of lager. No thanks.

Though pretty small, this place has a nice homely feel to it. Very friendly staff, but the place is let down by a strong sense that the management only care about making money and are out for every penny they can get off you. They stop selling draft beers at around 11pm, forcing you to buy overpriced bottles (half the quantity, twice the price), leaving a bitter taste of resentment of an otherwise promising bar.

Visited for the first time in awhile last night and was left very underwhelmed. It's been given a facelift which, while it means that the paintwork is no longer peeling and the furniture largely matches, seems to have robbed the place of much of its charm and character. On the plus side, it is now slightly larger.

Discovered to my disappointment that they no longer have Meantime beers on draft, leaving only a choice of Becks, Staropramen and Sierra Nevada. Plumped for the Sierra Nevada which was distinctly mediocre and certainly not worth the 4.50 I paid for the pleasure.

Overall, a formerly decent bar which seems to now be sadly on the slide.

How anyone can rate this bar highly is a complete mystery to me. I have been about 4 times and each time has been terrible. The place is like being in a furnace during the summer months and is therefore unbearable at the best of times, however, the last time I was in just before Christmas the toilets were as bad as any I've seen in London, and the bar staff were serving a pint to a bad smelling vagrant. Its bloody tiny as well. One to avoid!

The Sierra Nevada is certainly worth mentioning as a plus point. The worst thing is the dreadful music - will we never be free of the tyranny of jazz-funk? Sometimes it seems like every bar in London pumps this stuff out. Have a bit of imagination, mix it up a bit for godsake.

The Redchurch - has gone down a bit in last few months, but hey still can enjoy the best night out in Shoreditch! Met the love of my life there too! yes...ahhhhhh... small place for massive fun, beautiful and social people all there for a good time, plus cocktails are not only affordable but also to die for! Bring it on guys!!!

My god. 8 out of 10? I always end up making a drunken fool out of myself in this place. Crowded. If it's not crowded it's excellent. It's never cheap though.

I love this bar, top tunes, good beer ( Sierra Nevada on draught!) and the staff are always super welcoming. Definitely worth tracking down.

Lovely pub, bit small but very nice staff and amazing food (small menu) but very fresh and tasty.
