I often pop into this pub after work. Good selection of wine and beer and friendly service. However only drawback is it's very popular. Good if you're out with friends and want somewhere with a good buzz about it.

Historical East end pub reportedly where Ripper victims and perhaps Jack himself may have drank. Across from Spitafields market in the Shoreditch neighborhood. Near lots of shopping, restaurants, and nightlife. Good selection of beers on tap.

After wandering around White Chapel to get a feel for the place, we decided to try this Victoria pub. Although the outside has been renovated since the 1880's, the inside still retains much of the feel & flavour and décor of the Victorian age. Loved...More

Starting off point for a few drinks in and around Spitalfields Market. It was a hot summers day and thankfully there was ample standing room on the walkway outside the pub which, due to the good weather, was packed solid. We managed to squeeze in...More

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.

Located smack-bang in the middle of Shoreditch and Spitalfieds lies the institution that is "The Ten Bells" pub. This iconic venue has existed in one guise or another since the middle of the 17th Century. Expect all walks of life in this bustling classic boozer at any time of the day or night. Beyond the listed tile work and villainous history lies a solid and well respected pub with an excellent range of quality beers and decent Bartenders. Jostle in with the crowds downstairs or climb a further floor to find comfortable seating and a unique atmosphere where you watch the world go by on the streets below. Whether you are looking for Beer, Wine or Cocktails, The Ten Bells has it all with a touch of class yet still understated much like its reputation.
