The Water Poet is a multi-tasking backstreet boozer with an array of spaces including a dining room, an enormous beer garden (with a barn!), a pool room and a downstairs cinema.

Proper pub grub, done well - served from 12pm until 930pm Monday to Saturday. Our irresistible and critically acclaimed roasts are served on Sundays between midday and 8pm, with booking advisable.

Please note when booking a table through Open Table for dinner, this is for the dining room only (indoors)- sports will not be shown in these areas. To book drinks areas or areas for the sport please email us directly at info@waterpoet.co.uk

    I like this pub as it's a real gem to find in London. It's quite large but feels intimate because of the different rooms. We went for Sunday lunch at 2pm. On the whole is was good but the roasted potatoes were not crispy and tasted like ones I've cooked the day before and stored overnight in the fridge. Next time I'm in London I'll try it again.

    Great location near bishopsgate and good vibe- food across 7 of us was all good on starters / mains but deserts I would swerve. Would visit again.
