This gem a two-minute walk from Hackney Wick has everything – astounding pizzas (hello sweet potato, stilton and walnut topping), Crate’s own brews and even seating in wooden rowboats on the canal out back.
The Tap Room at this tiny venture is a masterclass in cobbled-together chic – park your bum on upturned kegs and drink up a range of London Fields’ brews, plus there are regular beer and food events (see website).
The Old Brewery
It’s worth the schlep to Greenwich to check out this sophisticated set-up, where the best of Meantime’s creations appear alongside other great craft beers of the world and are even matched to the food on the menu.
