In Our Mutual Friend, Charles Dickens immortalised this old Thames-side pub as the Six Jolly Fellowship Porters. While he might recognise the wood-panelled, Victorian long bar and The Dickens Snug, where as a child he reputedly danced on a table, much of surrounding Limehouse has changed beyond recognition. Sir Ian McKellan is a joint leaseholder of The Grapes which is in an area with many literary and artistic connections. Served in the tiny upstairs dining room are dishes such as devilled whitebait; smoked salmon and haddock fishcakes; fresh pan-fried swordfish, marinated in lemon and olive oil; grilled chicken burger; and the Sir Ian meaty shepherd’s pie. Salads, and sandwiches are always available, and there are Sunday roasts. Sorry, no one under 18 years is permitted.
