The pub is found in Bethnal Green, Greater London, E1 5QU.

A railway arch microbrewery established in January 2019. It is in Cudworth Street, almost underneath Bethnal Green railway station, surrounded by garages and a kind of taxi graveyard. The 'mechanic' name however relates to the brewery owners' previous employment in the offshore industry. A small taproom opens within the brewery premises at weekends. Beers are served from keg.

We have visited this pub twice, seen 7 different beers and tried them all.
