The Morgan Arms

43 Morgan St, 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
