Filly Brook – Good beer, good music, good times

One of the best things about the last few years in London has been the amount of pop-ups that have successfully become permanent fixtures. And thankfully, Filly Brook can be added to that growing list.

Started in 2015 as a pop-up next to Leytonstone tube station the permanent home is what was once a former scout hut on Grove Green Road in E11. Not, perhaps, the most picturesque part of London, but the transformation of the space has been incredible and it is now a beer fan’s delight. There are eighteen taps featuring lots of local east London breweries alongside a great selection of bottles and cans. The wines they serve are mostly organic, natural, low intervention and biodynamic bottles.

The music was a big part of the pop-up and that has continued with an excellent sound system, which they say is an ‘ongoing project’ and will undoubtedly continue to improve. Vinyl is on permanent display behind the bar and when DJs or live music are not on the staff get to play albums in full.

They have food residencies, so definitely worth checking what is on before you go, but when I was there last it was Hiroshima-style okonomiyaki from Sho Foo Doh (Fumio Tanga) which was gorgeous.
