We’ve never walked past this pub on Bethnal Green Road without wishing we were inside. The massive windows and busy bar might have something to do with it, but Well & Bucket is a neighbourhood fixture, and with good reason. The pub itself is absolutely gorgeous, with loads of pretty details and a garden at the back. Sliders and oysters are available if you’re feeling flush, and the crowd is always good for a party. When it gets late, the 5CC cocktail bar is downstairs if you’ve committed to coming home completely rat-arsed.
