the legendary pub The Birdcage on Columbia Road…oh we used to go there for Indie Karaoke we did. What a hoot. The Birdcage has now had a bit of make over and has recently reopened as The Draft House Birdcage. This new venture is their sixth site and stocks the finest craft beer known to humanity, where you can find local brews along with USA, Belgium, Germany and the Czech Republic beers.

Being an East-End boozer the Draft House have chosen wisely when it comes to their pub grub and opted for a menu of Pie and Mash. We praise you…we really do. Handcrafted, fully encased short crust pies of Steak & Ale, Steak & Kidney, Chicken Leek & Ham and Spinach, Sweet Potato & Goat’s Cheese. HUZZAH!


The Draft House also offer cocktails for those who like to sip on spirits. For us the new boozer is all about Pie, Mash and Liquor. And for those wondering if the karaoke will make a return…well it will, in a way, as local buskers belt out old classics while we all sing along with pie in our faces and a pint in our hand. What a wonderful Christmas this is going to be.
