Skyline of London

Wikipedia gives us the quick following overview of the area: “ Cubitt Town is a district on the eastern side of the Isle of Dogs in London, England. This part of the former Metropolitan Borough of Poplar was redeveloped as part of the Port of London in the 1840s and 1850s by William Cubitt, Lord Mayor of London (1860–1862), after whom it is named. It is on the east of the Isle, facing the Royal Borough of Greenwich across the River Thames. To the west is Millwall, to the east and south is Greenwich, to the northwest Canary Wharf, and to the north — across the Blue Bridge — is Blackwall. The district is situated within the Blackwall & Cubitt Town Ward of Tower Hamlets London Borough Council. “

That’s why we’ve thoroughly tested and reviewed all the pubs in Cubitt Town. While we didn’t get the chance to personally visit each one, we certainly wish we could have. Here’s the curated list of the finest pubs in Cubitt Town.

Pub name Name Address Description
Henry Addington 22-28 Mackenzie Walk Canary Wharf E14 4PH One of M&B’s Nicholson pubs, named after the Prime Minister (1801-4) who allowed the original Canary Wharf docks to be built. Located in a dockside unit of one of the huge modern office blocks. Spacious, with a long bar, plenty of comfortable seating, waiter service in a raised and railed area behind to the left. Very popular at lunchtimes and after work.
Ledger Building 4 Hertsmere Road Canary Wharf E14 4AL Wetherspoons in former docks administration building and converted late June 2000. The building dates from 1800 this pub stands at the northwest corner of the former Import Dock. It takes its name from the building’s original use, to house the ledgers of the West India Docks. A large single bar serves the standard Wetherspoon’s range with five rotating guests ales, featuring London breweries. Three further rooms give the pub plenty of space and pictures of the area’s history adorn the walls. The smoking area is in front of the pub.
Ferry House 26 Ferry Street Isle of Dogs E14 3DT Pleasant, small one bar pub (but has several rooms) that is few minutes walk from DLR Island Gardens Station. This building dates from 1722, although there was a pub on this site previously when a ferry ran between here and Greenwich. Reopened in spring 2016 after more than a year’s gap between tenants. Refurbished with bright orange and white paintwork, but not much changed otherwise. Fairly small, with a separate room to the right, and a sunken walled patio at the back. Food was introduced January 2020 from a developing menu.
George 114 Glengall Grove Isle of Dogs E14 3ND Dating from 1864, this former Watney’s pub is now managed by Hippo Inns. It has a rich history linked to the docks and the local community. The present early 1930s building consists of three distinct bars, each with its own special character, plus a large conservatory / restaurant along with an award winning patio garden. Between the public bar with 4 handpumps and the saloon also with 4 handpumps is a snug area called Ma Baker’s Bar, named after a regular, and probably at one time an off-licence facility. The walls are adorned with many pictures of local dock scenes and characters, all in a very welcoming ambience. An excellent choice of food is available with vegetarians catered for. There is a weekly quiz on Mondays
Gun 27 Coldharbour Isle of Dogs E14 9NS Pub with Lord Nelson associations which reopened as a gastropub, with a warren of rooms, after having been closed and boarded up after a fire. Run by the ETM Group for 12 years until sold to Fuller’s in summer 2016. A terrace at the back has views of the River Thames. The 4 handpumps are located in the front bar off the street. The pub occasionally closes for weddings and other special events – check pub website for details.
Parlour Park Pavilion, 40 Canada Square Isle of Dogs E14 5AB Large bar and restaurant opened October 2009. Mixture of seating and lighting, grey decor, separate restaurant area with open-to-view kitchen. Outdoor eating/drinking area.
Sports Bar & Grill 1 Crossrail Place Isle of Dogs E14 5AR Modern sports themed pub that opened in May 2015.
Waterman Arms 1 Glenaffric Avenue Isle of Dogs E14 3BW A Grade II listed building decorated in nautical style. Five minutes walk from Island Gardens DLR Station. Restaurant. Refurbished during first 3 months of 2020 and reopened in August 2020 as pub and boutique hotel.
Craft Beer Co. 576 Commercial Road Limehouse E14 7JD The ever expanding Craft Beer Co acquired this former Charrington’s house on the once bustling Commercial Road in 2016. A simple makeover and spruce up of the interior has ushered in the usual Craft Beer Co pleasant and inoffensive neutral decor featuring some authentic original pub mirrors from Charrington’s, Bass and Worthington adorning a stripped back bare brick wall. Some original iron columns remain along with a recently uncovered original mosaic bearing the legend “Railway Tavern”. The bar, bar back, toilets, ceiling, floor and windows are all relatively new work but the pub interior is smart and clean and very welcoming. 6 hand pumps are joined by 21 keg taps and a very impressive range of bottled beers including German and Belgian offerings from world famous breweries. The cask and keg lineup changes regularly but you can be certain of a decent range spanning the spectrum from uber pales to dark stouts and a lot in between. A very welcome addition to the E14 pubscape.
Grapes 76 Narrow Street Limehouse E14 8BP Very nice riverside pub with views of the Thames. Two downstairs rooms and one upstairs, both rear rooms have an outside terrace overlooking the river. Grade II Listed Building with frosted glass windows that you can imagine go back in time, hence a reminder painted sign dated 1949 in the bar is on show. There has been a pub here for nearly 500 years. It makes a (barely disguised) appearance in “Our Mutual Friend” – Charles Dickens (whose portrait is on the wall) knew the area well. Gandalf’s staff stands behind the bar, donated by local resident and a leaseholder of the pub, Sir Ian McKellan but Under 18’s are not allowed. Now Greene King (Spirit) , ex-Taylor Walker..
