Restaurants and Bars in the "Bow"-Area


 Share

Recommended Posts

We'll be in London for the weekend, visting friends. They live in the Bow-area (around the Mile End-subway-station, or was it Bethnal Green?).

They are not really "foodies", and they've only been living there for like 10 months - means I can't really rely on them when it comes to food...

So any suggestions for the area (or areas that are easy to reach ny foot, with the subway or the bus from there) would be great!!

PS: Is tax included in the menu&wine-prices in GB? And how much does one tip?

Bistrotheque and Green & Red are fun and closeby. The Empress of India is worth a go if you're heading east. You're also in westerly walking distance of the City (the financial district), where there are hundreds of options. Search for "liverpool st" and "spitalfields" to turn up some ideas.

Quoted menu prices always include tax, but not service. A gratuity of about 12% will usually be added to the final total to cover service (it will say so on the menu). If it is, there's rarely any reason to tip on top of that.
