The best pub Christmas dinners near Roman Road

‘Tis the season for roasted chestnuts, cranberry sauce and cinnamon-dusted mince pies. Although this year might still be a little different, our local pubs are spicing up their mulled wine and lighting up their cosy fires to offer you a Covid-safe dine out Christmas experience with all of the tasty trimmings you could dream of. With sparkly atmospheres, plentiful options and the tempting prospect of no washing up, we thought we would share a list of the pubs near Roman Road that are rustling up festive feasts on Christmas Day that you can enjoy with your family or household.

The Coborn

8 Coborn Road, Bow, London E3 2DA

Cosy fires, twinkling lights and festive fizz await you at The Coborn this Christmas. This historic pub has doubled its capacity since its refurbishment in 2015 and now offers us probably the largest restaurant in the area, making it an ideal place for a socially distanced celebration. There is even the option to ‘push the sleigh out’ and opt for a table banquet, where everything from goose fat roasties to cheese platters can be shared by all.      

Adult £80 per person

Child £55 per person

The Morgan Arms

43 Morgan Street, Bow, London E3 5AA

Just off the elegant Tredegar Square, The Morgan Arms is known for its generous portions and lack of pretension, making it one of the favourite places to eat in the East End. If their Sunday roasts are anything to go by, their Christmas dinners will be a pure delight (have you tried their gravy?). This pub is unrecognisable from its days when the Kray twins frequented its bar – it could now win the most respectable pub category. For a five-course festive treat, brimming with delights like golden yorkshire puddings and fig chutney, book here for your Christmas dinner. 

5 courses – £75 per person

3 course children’s menu – £35 per child (up to 12 years old)

The Green Goose

112 Anglo Road, Bow, London E3 5HD

Just a stone’s throw away from Roman Road in Bow, the Green Goose is a classic local pub with a modern twist. In this cosy sanctuary, hidden away from the busy London streets, you can tuck into some festive favourites this Christmas. Book yourself into one of their fashionable green leather booths, and enjoy soaking up the pretty ambience that will be sprinkled around you. You can go all out and add a few cheeky extras that you won’t find elsewhere (did someone say smoked bacon & chestnut mac & cheese?). 

£75 per head for adults 

£45 per head for children under 12

The Camel

The Camel on Sugar Loaf Walk is a real gem of an East London pub. This vintage boozer occupies a cute spot on the corner of a street and a little lane, and its tiled facade gives it a real authentic, almost antiquated feel. In keeping with its year-round food menu of pie and mash, Debbie, the landlady and a local favourite, will be serving pie and mash, with peas and gravy, from 12pm until 3pm.

£15 per person

For more information, visit The Camel’s Instagram page or call the pub directly on 07305 470811.

277 Globe Road, Globe Town, London E2 0JD
