Eating and drinking

Tower Hamlets borough is situated along the banks of London's river Thames. Consequently this part of the East End has long celebrated the pleasures of eating and drinking by the waterside.

We can offer a very wide selection of waterside places to visit. From world class restaurants to friendly, traditional pubs, Tower Hamlets caters for all tastes and can suit all pockets.

Indeed, many places deliberately cater for all tastes and pockets, offering, for example, modestly priced wine by the glass for everyday purposes, but also top marquee champagne for those in a mood to celebrate.

Use the links to the left hand side of the page to find a venue in that suits you. The various drinking holes and eateries have been grouped by area.Healthy eating guide

Healthier eating on the go

Tower Hamlets Healthy Borough programme has a ‘Healthier Eating out Guide’ – making it easier to get a nutritious bite to eat whilst on the go.

The guide lists all local cafés, takeaways and restaurants that are part of the Healthy Borough’s Food for Health Awards.

The awards acknowledge food businesses with a gold, silver or bronze for using healthier cooking methods and recipes with reduced sugar, fat and salt. Diners can easily identify Food for Health Award eateries by the yellow window sticker or a wall plate displayed at the premises.
