Aldgate Lunchtime Options No3 – The Peacock

Published: Sep 2nd, 2009 | Author: The Beeralist

Situated in Minories, the Peacock is a spacious, open one-room pub in a superb old art-deco building.

Even though it’s very close to where I work the Peacock had been completely off my radar until fairly recently, but a team social after work changed that.

Three to four real ales are generally available with Harvey’s Best and Ringwood Best being regulars. The beers always seem well kept.

Bizarrely for a lunchtime recommendation the Peacock does not actually sell food at all. But they are happy for you to bring in your own sandwiches or whatever, and many people do. So head up to Kelly’s, or the Pret nearby and then pop in here for a pint.

Food is available however for pre-booked social gatherings when you can use the games room upstairs – featuring a pool table and a couple of dart boards. There’s also a table football machine but you do need to give a bit of notice for that.
