Stumbled across this place looking for a Saturday morning cooked breakfast. Distinctive restaurant with nice cooked breakfast including their own twist on traditional baked beans. Little more expensive then other local options we considered, but was worth it in the end. Sparked our interest in their evening menu for a future visit. Ideally located to explore the adjacent indoor market which has some great independent stalls.

This restaurant from the outside has always intrigued me and after opting to head in for breakfast I could not recommend The English Restaurant more.
The decor is old fashioned and typically traditional with antique furniture and style everywhere, it's like you step backwards in time.
The food is top notch with every element of the meal made fresh with the best ingredients. Even the baked beans are made from scratch.
Will 100% be visiting here again and urge anyone in the Spitalfields area to give it a go!

Stopped by for breakfast. Good sized portions, great choice with friendly attentive service. Kind of traditional decor. Will call in again next time we are in the area.

Had a nice Sunday lunch here. Food and service was good. Plenty of beers to choose from. This has an old skool pub atmosphere in an area full of restaurant chains. Worth a visit.

I have walked past this place on several occasions but never bothered going in. My wife and I were pretty hungry and decided to give it a whirl for breakfast. We had a couple of cosmo cocktails, I had eggs benedict and the wife had eggs florentine. It has to be the best hollandaise sauce I have ever tasted and everything was divine.

The only reason I am marking down from 5 stars is they don't serve sausages. We both wanted a sausage on the side with our egg dishes and 'The English Restaurant' doesn't serve sausages??? How very odd!

A wonderful experience though and I would suggest you try it.
