About us

We are not only a ROCKTASTIC PUB,

NEWLY refurbished Cart & Horses is a cool and unique pub to catch up with friends in the East End of London. So whether it be at the bar or in our BRAND NEW basement live music venue, we are just fifty yards from Maryland station and a stone’s throw away from Stratford station.

Cart & Horses is also very well-known for the fact that the British legendary rock band Iron Maiden played their first gigs here and Cart & Horses was their first residential venue for the band.

You will be greeted by friendly and knowledgeable staff who will be happy to serve you GREAT FOOD, a wide range of Beers, Ciders, Ales, Spirits, Fine Wines and not forgetting the Iron Maiden Trooper beer selection. You can enjoy your drinks and food at the bar or relax at one of our tables.
