Latest review:

Awful staff who are unwelcoming and rude. We run in Victoria Park on a regular basis. Shop in the Ginger Pig, Gail's and the Fishmonger in the village. Our favourite restaurant is My Neighbour the Dumplings. Sadly this is the worst, most pretentious pub in East London. Eight of us dropped in after a run in Victoria Park. A member of staff told us they were full (it was 12 noon) and we pointed to some empty tables near the door. He reluctantly allowed us to sit there and we ordered some coffees while we looked at the brunch menu. In the meantime the door was propped open. Given that it was February and cold we asked if the door could be closed - the response was no because we were making the place smell. We were gobsmacked and promptly cancelled our coffees and left. As we left one of our group commented to the server that he was rather rude and he just responded that they didn't want runners there as they smell. Went across the road to The Lauriston who were very welcoming and confirmed we didn't smell. If you live local and use the park, avoid this place like the plague.
