The Scolt Head is a family run local in DeBeauvoir. If you crave a proper pub then come to us. Serving ale, good wine & great food.

We had hoped to be able to welcome you inside in April, sadly that won’t be the case until May 17th at the earliest.

We are going to be running The Scolt Head at a fraction of our capacity for the first month. With this in mind we have made the decision to take evening bookings for groups who are ALL eating. We realise this won’t suit everyone but we have to find a way of working that is viable for us.

From 11am to 6pm daily people can eat or drink in the garden. From 6pm we ask that everyone at a table eats a full meal.

We are using a system of deposits for all bookings. Nothing is taken from your card if you come & eat as agreed. No fee for cancelling 48 hours before a booking. £10 per head under 24 hours. £15 a head for a no show.

We are looking forward to seeing you all & getting back to normal.

Please have the NHS track & trace downloaded.

The food was excellent - shame there was only one vegetarian option - which was very tasty. Pudding was delicious too - a tart with rhubarb but a bit on the small side !

Sampled 2 of the real ales, both were not perfect but both were acceptable.

Had 2 mains, both excellent.

Some problem with the booking meant we weren't on the list but they were very helpful and we got a table. The service was very good, friendly and helpful.

Love this pub and I really enjoyed Nuno Mendez food! But service could it be more friendly or just nicer to make you feel more comfortable.

Scolt Head's beer garden is one of the best gardens in East London, great to be back every time, however unfortunate to see empty tables that could have been used by walk-ins...

The food we had was really nice (each got The Scolt Royal and the aubergine and chickpea curry doughnuts, highly recommend both), service was great, staff were friendly, only slight quibble is the way the garden is set up can block out the sun and can make it a bit cold, but would still highly recommend!

The food was excellent, very friendly service. It was a bit cold and I think the outdoor area could benefit from some heating but overall it was a great evening.

Went for post lockdown pints in the beer garden and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. Really nice pub grub.
And the house lager is great and surprisingly cheap!

Food above quality for a normal pub (would like a few more veggie options though)

We enjoyed our meal very much, tasty food and good-sized portions. Service was friendly and helpful. The offer of hot-water bottles was very welcome, but some heaters for the outside would better!
