Located just around the corner from Aldgate East tube station and the Whitechapel High Street, the dining room is decorated with gunmetal grey wallpaper, posh table settings and black leather chairs, and attracts local media types and fashionable foodies. The Dispensary boasts a superb international wine list as well as a modern British menu with a classic twist.
