Food & Drink
There’s a map below of all the great food and drink spots around Troxy. Just click on the icons for more details.
One of our near neighbours is The George Tavern, something of a big deal round these parts. It was mentioned in the writings of Charles Dickens, Samuel Pepys and Geoffrey Chaucer and there’s been a pub on the site for more than 700 years. Their events diary is well worth checking out. Also, it wouldn’t be right if we didn’t give a huge shout out to our nearly neighbours, Craft Beer Co, who truly are a beer lover’s paradise!
While we’re talking about pubs, Sir Ian McKellen (Gandalf to you youngsters, Magneto to the slightly older folk) is a leaseholder at historic boozer The Grapes, which, along with Tower Bridge and St Paul’s, stuck two fingers up at the Luftwaffe and survived the Blitz. Sir Walter Raleigh sailed from right outside the pub when he embarked on his third trip round the world. Presumably happy hour had finished.
Sir Ian is not the only celeb who has a foothold in Limehouse. Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay’s restaurant The Narrow not only serves fantastic food but has a terrace with a view of The Shard.
The Yurt Cafe, part of the St Katharine’s Precinct, is the place to go to enjoy a cuppa, or maybe something stronger, in relaxing surroundings. Their welcoming interior has won awards and with a reflective space open during cafe hours for quiet contemplation and prayer you’re sure to find a peaceful moment.
If you’re a caffeine fiend then just up the road you’ll find Husk Coffee and Creative Space, a lovely cafe open from Tuesdays to Saturdays serving great coffee, cakes and light bites.
When it comes to delicious food, Two Magpies really has everything, and caters for breakfast, brunch, lunch and early supper… you’ll often find our team in Sylvia’s. Our new favourite Turkish restaurant – Kirvem (who offer Troxy guests a 10% discount on event nights – just show your ticket!) is a short walk and serves fantastic homemade food in a lovely, warm atmosphere.
