Whether you’re after a quick lunch, a romantic dinner by the river or just a friendly greeting in your local pub, we’d love to welcome you to The Grapes in Limehouse. We’ve been recommended by The Good Pub Guide since 1996, and you’ll understand why when you visit.
Overlooking the Thames, in a peaceful neighbourhood not that far from the bustle of Canary Wharf, The Grapes is one of the oldest pubs in London. Charles Dickens was a patron, and even made reference to the pub in his novel ‘Our Mutual Friend’.
Leaseholder Ian McKellen has written a brief history, should you wish to find out more.
