The Hoop and Grapes, Aldgate

A splendid example of a City of London local pub with a very old history. The service is always very friendly with some great barmaids and the boss Hamish always with time for a chat. The real ales (Pride, Tim Taylors, Doombar plus guests) well always in good condition and reasonably price. I don't visit often but never disappointed. The place is crowded on Fridays from 5 til 7 but then thins out. On other weekdays the place is a little less lively. Highly recommended.

"Don't say Real Ale say Sarsons" should be this pubs motto.
This boozer is holding on against all of the odds in an area where pubs are disappearing faster than playing cards up Paul Daniels sleeves. With a bar staff that couldn't recognise an off pint of real ale (the only kind they serve) if they were forced to bathe in it and with the magnificent Doreen in attendance, surely Wagners inspiration for the Valkyries, frightening stuff indeed, Gotterdammerung surely awaits just as it did for John Bull bitter (and the Romford Brewery Co.)Innocent passerby, do yourself a favour and pass on to the canal up towards Mile End Station. You'll find something in there more refreshing!
