Mile End: Surprisingly convenient.
The East End is not only a hub of history, culture & diversity; it is also home to various restaurants & quirky bars. Every corner reveals an independent shop, café or studio. Below are just a handful of reasons why we love Mile End, and why you should too…
Lower than average rent prices & transport convenience
Although Mile End has excellent transport links (a tube ride into Bank being around 8 minutes & further West to Oxford Street being 16 minutes) you will find the rental prices are not as high as most well connected areas. The average rental price for Mile End is currently around £1,232pcm for a 1 bedroom apartment and around £1,813pcm for a 2 bed. Slightly lower than the surrounding areas such as Bethnal Green and much lower than Shoreditch.
Roman Road (And surrounding areas!)
If you’re a foodie then you’ll be sold on the vast selection of food & drink options. Mile End benefits from the Roman Road stretch, compromising of many various eateries. A few of our favourites are:
A lovely what-you-see-is-what-you-get café. Mainly specialising in pizza, they also offer a variety of sweet & savoury baked goods. For something different, we recommend the tarragon chicken flatbread! Perfect for a snack or light lunch. P.s they do delivery too!
Venture here for a breakfast only dreams are made of. Have your camera at the ready; the pancakes here will look fabulous on your Instagram feed!
Fancy something a little more refined? Vinarius offers a variety of wines alongside mixed platters of cheese & charcuterie. What’s better, is that the staff serving this to you all have a vast knowledge of each and every wine. We’d highly recommend for a date night.
Not the type of person to wake up early enough to catch brunch? No need to worry – Mae + Harvey serve up brunch all day long. Another niche café boasting Instagram worthy food.
Barge East (Hackney Wick)
Waterside dining on a boat? Sold! Be sure to check out Barge East for an exclusive dining experience upon the River Lea. Sadly, not located on Roman Road but a short walk away. P.s – they cater for gluten free diners & vegans too!
