40 Commercial Street, LONDON, E1 6LP
Many of London's Victorian street-corner pubs have a unique architectural style - this is one of them. It's named after 17th-century Spitalfields herbalist, physician and astrologer Nicholas Culpeper. The pub's huge windows help to illuminate original features in the large open interior, and from the bar a curving staircase leads up to a more formal first-floor eating area and kitchen, which makes good use of herbs and vegetables grown in a rooftop greenhouse. The short, daily-changing menu typically offers burrata, orange, braised Treviso lettuce and pine nuts as a starter; then lamb sirloin, dauphinoise potatoes, parsnip, anchovy and mint salad; and poached rhubarb, frangipane and pistachio ice cream. Real East End beer Truman's Runner might well be among those on hand pump, and 10 wines are by the glass. A bar and dining room on the roof are bookable during the summer for private functions.
