The Great Eastern, Docklands
The recently refurbished Great Eastern pub offers up a new local drinking establishment to the Isle of Dogs, while maintaining a traditional British pub charm.
Formally The Waterman's Arms, this East End Pub has an impressive history! Previously owned by Daniel Farson, it saw the likes of Clint Eastwood and Julie Garland drink and perform here.
The Great Eastern was the largest steam & sail ship ever built on the Isle of Dogs, launching in 1858. What better name is there for a pub with such a grand past.
Pull up a stool at the bar, or choose from one of the comfy couches to sit and watch the two big screens. We show all the big sporting matches, and with two Sky boxes, you'll never miss the underdog team play.
In addition to the bar, the Brunel coffee Lounge is open daily from 7am serving delicious Illy coffee, smoothies and pastries.
Our food menu has extended from our amazing pizzas (you can order them take-away) to include wraps, soups, sausage rolls and Cornish pasties.
