With its non-stop traffic, roving packs of lads and uninspiring chains, Angel isn’t exactly heaven on earth on a night out. But salvation has arrived in the form of the Three Johns, a new craft beer and pizza pub from the people behind Well & Bucket in Bethnal Green and Harrild & Sons in the City. Bare brick walls, copper ceiling tiles and big windows are standard these days in pub refurbs, but the Three Johns strikes a good balance between trad and modern – Victorian fireplaces, pew seating and a thoroughly up-to-date selection of craft beers from the UK, Europe and the US. There’s plenty of floor space, probably intended for the inevitable post-work crowds, but also a few comfy corners for contemplative pint-sippers. Food-wise there’s not much more than pizza, but it’s done well. Three cheers for the Three Johns!
