PUBS AND BARS The Palm Tree *Star Pick*
The Palm Tree is an East End institution. Don’t expect gourmet sharing boards or Arancini. This is a strictly no-frills East End boozer that Barbara Windsor would be proud of. The décor is chintz, the clientele colourful and the live band nights are unforgettable. A must visit.
