East London Beer Gardens Worth Checking Out.

East London Beer Gardens Worth Checking Out.

Recent research from Reallymoving has calculated how many pints of beer you would need to give up to raise the average 10% deposit for a home in London.  According to the figures, the magic number is 11,494, to save a deposit of £43,100.

It's a stat that I recently discovered and thought was interesting. To be honest, after the year we have had, I think we all deserve time off from our worries, and what better way to do that than to meet with friends at your local beer garden and enjoy a sip or two.

So, to inspire an outing, I thought I'd share some of the best drinking spots with beer gardens in East London!

Signature Brew, Walthamstow.

the beer garden at Signature Brew Blackhorse Road is a gorgeous place to spend a balmy evening. Sip on craft ales at this buzzing spot, with 12 lines of beer available to try.

The Crown, Victoria Park.

Located by Victoria Park, The Crown is offering real ales and views of the lush area. But it's not just the booze that makes it a top place to drink outside in London. The watering hole also has  an intimate rooftop terrace and a whole host of delicious food that will keep you fed throughout the week.

The People's Park Tavern, Victoria Park.

If you've ever had a wander around Victoria Park next to the Regent's Canal in east London, you probably would have stumbled across the rear of The People's Park Tavern pub and beer garden as it backs directly onto the park and even have it's own park entrance. The beer garden is huge, mostly shaded by awning, canopies and the huge trees that reside in the park, plus it has its own 9-hole crazy golf course with water features, tiki huts, and towering Moai heads. It has made a name for itself as a fun pub thanks to comedy nights, quiz nights, throwback Thursdays, DJs, and weekend live music and bottomless brunch plus, inside, you'll discover Lady Chastity's Reserve, an escape room game.

The Leyton Star, Leyton.

The large outdoor terrace at the back of this east London pub and beer garden has loads of seating for a hot summer's day. There are eight private cabanas, which can each be heated if your gathering goes on into past dusk. There's also an event space if you want to book some al fresco birthday drinks. Keep an eye out for the two golden palm tree light fixtures which take pride of place in the beer garden; they were purchased at a charity auction and were once used as part of the set design for Paloma Faith's Fall To Grace tour. The pub also hosts live sport, pub quizzes, Lucky Voice Karaoke, cocktail masterclasses, and 2-4-1 cocktails on Thursdays. Fun in the sun!

The Palm Tree, Bow.

Hidden away in the middle of Mile End Ecology Park, this is an archetypal East End boozer from ‘the good old days’ – the cash register only accepts coins or notes (no cards, please), the red curtains original gold-leaf wallpaper have a whiff of the 50s, & the live music is likely to be singalong Sinatra or vintage jazz performed by equally vintage musicians. There’s also a terrific line-up of real ales including the likes of Maldon Gold from the Mighty Oak Brewing Company in Essex or Roll in the Hay from Brewsters of Grantham, plus some well-presented lagers. In warm weather, everyone piles outside to lounge in the long grass by the canal. A real cracker, adored by young & old alike.

Well, I hope this list offers a different view for you. I didn’t want to take you to the obvious choices.

Hopefully, this list here will inspire you to explore and have a merry experience in an East London beer garden near you!
