Welcome to The Hoop and Grapes in Aldgate London

You will find The Hoop and Grapes in Aldgate London within a short stroll of Whitechapel, Aldgate Tube and Mansell Street - however you won't find another like it.

Step in to discover a traditional pub of unique character, revered for its eclectic range of real ales and its quality pub food, which are served, as they should be, with a generous measure of famous British hospitality.

A unique city centre pub with a rich history

The Great Fire of London in 1666 stopped just 50 yards from The Hoop and Grapes and we were lucky to be one of the few timber framed buildings to survive from this period. Twisted and bent by time, the front of the building leans out and was only saved by extensive restoration. Our name was originally the Hops and Grapes to show it sold both beer and wine.

Serving up seasonal specialities and mouth-watering favourites

Our breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus offer everything you’d expect to find on any respectable, British pub menu, and so much more besides. Boasting an array of delicious sharers, through to classic main dishes, and succulent burgers, there’s a selection to suit every appetite.

One of a kind

The Hoop and Grapes is one of many rare gems in the Nicholson's collection of iconic and great British pubs — held in the highest of regards for their distinctive buildings, intriguing history and vibrant atmosphere.

Urban outdoor seating

We don’t have a pub garden but at The Hoop and Grapes we do have a small urban outdoor space for you to enjoy a drink, some food and a great atmosphere.
