The service was fantastic and the roast dinner (inc. the vegan option) was definitely one of the best in East London. Would definitely come back and recommend to a friend!

Lovely pub, the food is delicious, and they have very thorough Covid-19 procedures in place. Great value with Eat Out to Help Out, which they generously extended out of their own pocket for the whole of September.

Customer service is great. Food is awesome. We left a little earlier than anticipated because there was a group of lads put right next to us who were really noisy. Shame as we would have stayed.

Good food and unobtrusive staff, which may have been partly due to 'social distancing'.

Very good regarding the safety of customers during COVID-19. The food was a good standard my wife had the sea bass which was a decent size and I had the lamb rump which was nicely cooked. We had starters of scallop and prawns with samphire in a parsley & garlic butter which at £11 each was a bit pricey as you only got one scallop and two prawns. We had one alcoholic drink each and the whole meal cost £75 inc service charge but we took advantage of the 50 percent off up to £10 each (mon, tues, weds) which made the price much more reasonable. All in all a nice pleasant dinner and we would return.

Food was great! We ate late (for a Sunday roast) so the pork was not available but the beef and chicken options were really good. Staff were very attentive and followed all the government guidelines and ensured all the customers did.

The staff at the Morgan Arms are taking COVID 19 seriously. Everyone is wearing face shields and make sure that you wear masks and hand sanatize on the way in.
They do table service only for drinks which was good but one friend (who arrived after us) was waiting for over 15 minutes for someone to take her order.
Overall, lovely staff and good evening.

This was our second visit to the Morgan Arms. We are doing our best to go vegetarian and they do the best vegetarian wellington we have ever had. We have sampled quite a few (particularly in east London) and none come close. The rest of the roast is good, although serving a whole carrot is quite intimidating (I would recommend chopping this down the middle prior to serving) and the Yorkshire pudding is relatively cold (it is tough keeping these warm if precooked so I haven't marked you down on this).

The service was very polite and punctual. It was relatively quiet, but that's probably more to do with limited capacity due to the COVID restrictions. The first time we went the atmosphere was a little more bouncing. Don't let that put you off though, the murmur of chatter in the background generated a suitable atmosphere given the circumstances.

We came for a Sunday roast whilst we were walking round the area, the food was great and we had a lovely time. However there was just one thing that irritated us, the waitress cleared away my partner’s plate whilst I was still eating. We just find that quite rude.

The food and drink was delicious and the setting of the Morgan Arms is always lovely. Overall a very nice evening was had, but we did feel slightly rushed towards the end, when we were told that we had 5 minutes to clear the table. This came as a slight surprise as we still had half an hour left on the 2 hour booking (as per our email booking conversation). We had planned to have a whisky or two after dinner, but that was no longer an option!

We came here for Sunday roast. Covid measures were being undertaken and taken seriously. Staff were generally very friendly (the host greeted us merrily but but didn’t interact or even look at us when seating us so she came across as rather fake). Food and drinks were good, atmosphere was friendly. I would come here again and recommend it.

This was our first visit to The Morgan Arms. We booked online for lunch as we were dropping our daughter back to uni. The staff were very friendly and explained all the COVID safety measures clearly and efficiently. Our food was delicious and came quite quickly, which was great as we were starving!! This was our first eat out to help out and it was lovely having 50% off our food and soft drinks. However, even if this offer was not on, we wouldn’t hesitate in returning. Thank you.

Absolutely outstanding front of house warm, welcoming & professional. Well above the average pub grub or even the average gastropub with fantastic vegetarian and vegan options. An east London gem!
