The Royal Oak

73 Columbia Road, London E2 7RG 020 7729 2220

We say

This characterful old pub with its green-tiled exterior and simple wooden furnishings has a dual existence. During the week it’s a snoozy and welcoming retreat, but the location on Columbia Road ensures that on weekends, and particularly on a Sunday, it’s crammed to the rafters. Downstairs the action focuses on the large central bar, while upstairs a light-filled and elegant dining room serves up Modern European grub; retreat from the bustle of the market to enjoy their excellent Sunday roast.
