Welcome to The Grapes

Where London's history happened

Welcome to The Grapes, Limehouse

Whether you’re after a quick lunch, dinner by the river or just a friendly greeting in your local pub, we’d love to welcome you to The Grapes in Limehouse. We've been recommended by The Good Pub Guide since 1996, and you'll understand why when you visit.

Overlooking the Thames, in a peaceful neighbourhood not that far from the bustle of Canary Wharf, The Grapes is one of the oldest pubs in London. Charles Dickens was a patron, and even made reference to the pub in his novel 'Our Mutual Friend'. Leaseholder Ian McKellen has written a brief history, here, should you wish to find out more.

Whilst our history goes back over 500 years, our menus are a little more up-to-date! If you're looking for something quick and tasty like our famous fish and chips, you’ll find tempting pub grub downstairs in the bar, or on our heated riverside deck.

Join us on a Monday evening from 8pm for our hugely popular Pub Quiz.

We are unable to take table reservations except for our festive menu.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Please note, due to licensing restrictions we can only welcome guests over the age of 18 onto the premises.
