At The Angel of Bow, we offer the best pub food in East London, making 98% of what we serve from scratch in our own kitchen.
Our seasonal menu changes every week and is filled with produce from the best local East London suppliers.
We get the freshest fish from Billingsgate Market, less than a mile away; we source the highest quality meat from our local Peckover Butchers on Roman Road; and our fruit and veg is delivered direct from Spitalfields Market.
Fresh oysters come in from Maldon every Thursday – when they’re gone, they’re gone!
Alongside our daily specials our menu features favourites including prawn cocktail, homemade pâtés, fresh fish and chips, hand-minced burgers and a selection of Mediterranean dips and homemade sheftalia and kofta.
Desserts are just as important as the rest of the meal, with tarte tatin, pavlova, crumble, frangipane tart and frozen berries with homemade ice cream all making an appearance on our menu.
Sundays are all about roast dinner here in Bow. Options change with the seasons but we offer choices including chicken, sirloin beef, pork belly with crackling, lamb, guinea fowl, venison, a vegan pithivier and, of course, turkey throughout December.
As befits the best roast dinner, everything is served with roast potatoes, parsnips and carrots in butter and golden syrup, spiced red cabbage, green beans, and, naturally, homemade Yorkshire puddings and a generous pour of gravy.
If a leisurely entrance to the weekend is what you’re looking for, why not join us for brunch in East London?
Savoury options include a decadent Monte Christo sandwich and a full Mediterranean breakfast. Or if you have more of a sweet tooth, try our American pancakes or bruléed crumpets with mascarpone, crème fraiche and berries.
Start your weekend with a real bang by adding a cocktail to your order.
We are an independent, family-owned pub. Running things ourselves means we’ve been able to create links with a range of local breweries, giving us full choice of the best craft beers to rotate across our 22 taps. Expect to see firm favourites including Neckstamper, Pillars, East London Brewery, Hackney Brewery and Hammerton Brewery alongside new gems for you to discover.
We’ve cemented our status as one of the best craft beer pubs in East London by creating our own Angel of Bow session lager. Made with malt and hops, our unique recipe isn’t based on chemicals like some others and takes six-to-eight weeks to brew. Come in and try out the fruits of our labours!
If you’re more into Belgian beers or cider, we’ve got you covered too.
We also have an extensive selection of more than 40 wines, including vegan and organic options. We’re proud to support some of the smaller, more forward-thinking growers around the world with our carefully curated offering.

Our fully stocked bar features hundreds of spirits and includes a dedicated world of whiskey cabinet alongside an extensive collection of rums. Our house pours come courtesy of the East London Liquor Company, just up the road.
