E6 NEWS, FOOD & DRINK

The Red Lion cometh!

It’s heeeeere! Finally after much anticipation and social media buzz, there is a new PUB in East Ham!

The arrival of East Ham gastropub The Red Lion (the artist formally known as The Hammers) will not be news to many of you. It is probably THE most talked about opening of 2018 (and 2017 for that matter). Twitter and Facebook were a buzz with excitement before the grand opening and any of you who follow the Manor Park E12 & East Ham E6 Facebook page, read the East Edge mag or follow the lovely folks at Greatfield Residents Association will have been all over this like a rash. For those of you who don’t, a) why the heck not? Get yourself hooked up to the E6 grapevine STAT (follow the links above!) and b) don’t worry, we’re gonna tell you all about it…

E6 NEWS, THINGS TO DO

You are 16 going on 17…

2017 is upon us, and at EastBlam HQ we are feeling reflective.

2016 was a tough year – it brought us Brexit, Trump, the death of Bowie, excruciating budget cuts (especially for Newhamites) and the Hammers moved to Stratford. It’s easy to slide into the new year with the weight of the last one still on your shoulders so before we clean house, we had a little stop and think about the good bits of E6 we have discovered (or discovered us) this year.

Yep that’s right, it’s time we had a Team America style montage (ok, less montage, more list but the sentiment is the same!) before we set some motivational Pinterest style New Year’s resolutions to take us into 2017. Lets go… Continue Reading

The King of Burgers at Rustix Gourmet, Barking Road, E6

January is on it’s way, so before you descend into diets, and resolution get yourself down to the newest (and most heavily PR’d) Burger joint in East Ham – Rustix Gourmet.

They serve burgers, mac and cheese, chicken and steak on chipboard tables, and in tin plates. They take their theme so seriously that they were even playing some old bluegrass and delta blues tunes when we visited (#winning). This is not your average East Ham eatery… Continue Reading
