Fodor's Review

Wonderful modern art lines the walls of this former Victorian pub a mile east of the Tower of London, which has been beautifully restored and converted into a modern B&B. It's all the work of Julian Cole, the gregarious and charming owner, who spent decades making arts documentaries—hence the wonderful collection of modern art that lines the walls. Guests can use the sitting room, which doubles as the breakfast room in the morning. There's also a roof terrace, overlooking a striking mural that covers one side of a nearby building. Entitled The Battle of Cable Street, it commemorates a clash between local Jewish protestors and British Fascists that took place here on October 4th, 1936.
