The East End is now hip and happening but was historically the home of working-class London. During this time, the pubs were community centres, where locals would socialise, trade and debate the topics of the day. Although this community feel is lost, the Ten Bells is one of those boozers whose ambience ignites a feeling of old London. A place steeped in history, and renowned as being the watering hole where two of Jack the Rippers were seen for the last time. Honestly, the selection of sips here isn’t really special, but just worth checking out because of its chequered past.
