Pub in Bow
The Lord Morpeth Pub in Bow (based just off Old Ford Road) is my local and a fairly decent one at that! It is a cosy pub with friendly staff, board games and sports – a great way to spend a evening or weekend.
The pizzas by Sourdough Saloon are in the Evening Standard’s top 10 pizzas in London. Deserved? Absolutely! The company has had successes around East London with The Lord Morpeth, The Black Horse and The Dog and Duck.
There are around 10 pizzas to choose from and I wanted over half of them! We ended up trying the Mamma Mia: Margherita, Parma Ham, Rocket and Shaved Parmigiano Reggiano. The Calabrese: Margherita, ‘Nduja, Salamino Piccante, Red Onion and Black Olives was also fantastic. We were given pepper and chilli flakes to add if we wished, as well as balsamic vinegar for the Mamma Mia (a lovely added touch!)
The pizzas were delicious – thin and crispy with a generous amount of toppings and very flavoursome. Definitely up there with my favourite pizza in London. What a great local pub in Bow!
