Pride of Spitalfields, Spitalfields
On Sunday, I left half a pint and left after the comments from one chap. It was busy on Brick Lane and I commneted on this. The guy started being racist about the 'non-white' locals, banging on about the BNP and how it's like a zoo around here, much to the amusement of some other locals.
I know pubs are places of banter where people go to put the world to rights, but to hear open racism in a pub in one the most historic multicultural areas of London annoyed me so much. Do we really have to put up with racist nonsense just for commenting how busy it is?
I've had my last pint there.
3 Heneage Street, Spitalfields, London, E1 5LJ
From Aldgate East, turn left to go up Whitechapel High Street. Turn left when you reach Brick Lane. Heneage Street is about halfway up Brick Lane on the right. From Liverpool Street, cross Bishopsgate and make your way down one of the side streets to Spitalfields Market. Cross Commercial Street opposite the Wren-designed Christ Church. Head down Fournier Street and you'll hit Brick Lane, turn right, and it's first on your left.
