I’ve had the pleasure of visiting the Print House on more than one occasion, thanks to having a few friends live very near by, and I’ve always been impressed.
Housed in a beautifully converted warehouse building on the banks of the Three Mills Wall River, the bar is very relaxed, trendy and comfortable with plenty of leather sofa’s and a delicious kitchen menu.
Great food. Great building. A bit out of the way.
I’ve only ever had a burger at the Print House so I can’t give a low down on the whole menu, but it was among the best I’ve had in London – not to mention the the chips in particular which were absolutely delicious, huge and amazing. Seriously, eat chips here. Other friends have attested that their food was equally as impressive. The menu isn’t expensive as this isn’t a restaurant, think very fancy pub food.
Price wise I found the Print House to be reasonable; my rather large burger and chips came to just over £12. Drinks are London prices so not cheap but not a surprise either. Cocktails are on the more expensive side but there are 2 for 1 deals available on certain days, check the website (below) for details.
My only concern for this great little place is its location. If I didn’t have friends living nearby I would never have come across the Print House, which is situated about half a mile from Stratford station half way down Stratford high street.
Even though it’s a a bit out in the sticks, if you find yourself in Stratford looking for a decent place to eat or drink, it might be worth the walk to the Print House because you’ll be guaranteed value for money.
Despite its dubious location, finding the Print House couldn’t be easier thanks to the random but pretty Strand East Tower which is right next door, so just look out for this gold structure and walk right towards it.
Places like the Print House are sure to start popping up all over east London as the trend for converted warehouses and factories roars onwards. Some of these conversions feel tacky and a bit ‘you’re trying too hard’, the print house however manages to pull it off with style, good service and delicious food. I just hope they can attract enough customers to this quite corner of east London.
