Ten Bells

84 Commercial St, Spitalfields London E1 6LY 020 7366 1721

We say

A fixture on the tourist circuit for its grisly Jack the Ripper associations – it’s where his last victim had her last drink – the historic Ten Bells, named for the pealing sounds from neighbouring Christ Church, is still well worth a pint for its beautifully preserved tiled interior. The Victorian decorative scheme famously celebrates the local weaving community, while a contemporary mural features modern local residents, such as the artists Gilbert and George. The pub’s former landlords include celebrity chef Jamie Oliver’s great great grandfather. Try to grab a seat on one of the battered sofas, or join the pint-clutching pavement crowds on weekday evenings.
