The Dispensary

This East London pub and dining room was built in 1858 to house the Eastern Dispensary, founded by the Duke of Wellington to provide medical care to the poor. The current owner, David Cambridge, was once a chef to Conrad Black and the British Royal Family. Cambridge and his wife Annie bought the place in 2006 and have restored it -- but not much. It's pleasingly rough around the edges.

Signature drink: Adnams Broadside (2.80 pounds).
