I was pleased to see this pub has re-opened and popped in for a quick one. I always thought the pub offered potential and I hope this latest reincarnation realises that potential.
Blue Monkey - Jungle Bells4.20GoodA brown Bitter that is a little on the sweet side for my tastes – worth a ‘good’ though.

Summary of Beer Scores



The pub is found in Aldgate, Central London, E1 6TD.

This street corner pub in Osborn Street was present by 1821 and earlier called the Archers Tavern. Traditionally a Whitbread’s pub, it has rarely sold cask beers in recent history – a couple of experiments in the 1980s and 1990s being unsuccessful. January 2016 had seen a return to cask beer, with four handpumps on the bar. It is a small, single-bar pub, stripped back to basics, with a nice fireplace against one wall. Close to Aldgate East station and handy for Brick Lane. Re-opened and renamed in 2019 with the addition of a seven storey hotel above.

We have visited this pub 3 times, seen 8 different beers and tried 3 of them.
