Mother Kelly’s – Ales on tap or to take away…

There are few places in London that have 19 regularly changing ales, prosecco and two wines on tap. I could probably just end this write-up here, but I should probably say a bit more about one of my favourite local hot spots, Mother Kelly’s.

Bethnal Green has seen little of the hipster redevelopment action that spots like Dalston and Hackney Wick have experienced, but that changed with the launch of Paradise Row – a set of railway arches tucked away near the Underground station that has become a new destination for bars and restaurants. Mother Kelly’s, ‘taproom and ale shop’, set a precedent.

With new additions regularly, my favourites include ‘Dead Guy’, the ‘Ninkasi’ with champagne yeast and any of the pale ales, but these can change daily. The meat and cheese boards are delicious and help in soaking up the beers and there are rows of fridges selling an international variety of bottles to take away. A sociable outdoor terrace is the perfect place for a local pint or seven – especially in summer!
