You know Bethnal Green's going up market when even the pie and mash is posh.

The Camel's gourmet pies, served with tasty mash, mushy peas and a boat of gravy, are a popular draw in these parts.

For just under a tenner, you can choose from an extensive choice of fillings including chicken, chorizo, spinach and goats' cheese, as well as the more traditional steak and kidney.

The Camel forms part of the triangle of trendy, cosy Bethnal Green pubs in walking distance from Pubspy's offices.

Located on Globe Road, a quiet backstreet just a short walk from Bethnal Green Tube, this small and sophisticated little pub is less boisterous than its sister establishment, the nearby Florist.

Furnished traditionally with dark mahogany tables, it is a cosy venue to shelter during lazy weekend afternoons with a scruffy paperback from the bookshelf, or one of the board games by the bar.

During the summer months, the mixed clientele spill out onto the picnic benches in the alleyway outside. To pubspy's frustration, a table can be difficult to bag on a Friday or Saturday night.

A typical gastro-style drinks menu includes cask ales and continental lagers including Fruli and Amstel.
