Specialist bottle shop/bar/cafe in a railway arch.


An unlikely location to find a specialist beer shop, this place is a real surprise. Offers an excellent selection of maybe 50-60 bottled beers at great prices, all available for onsite consumption. It's a real community resource too, doubling up as a community cafe, performance and events space and even a cinema. This one is worth the trek - 10 mins walk from Forest Gate or Wanstead Park stations - but note the opening times carefully and check before travelling (NB: we found it closed on our most recent visit despite having checked in advance. Reports welcome). Also, Burgess & Hall next door has a small but good selection of beers, as well as an outstanding selection of wines and is worth a look.
