Sadly no Wanstead establishments made it to the Time Out Love London Awards 2018.
Several Forest Gate ones did though, including winners Bare Brew, The Duke and the Manor House, and runners up including The Larder and Luppolo.
Year after year the Time Out awards seem to have a problem with the existence of Wanstead – for several years Wanstead venues were listed as being part of Leytonstone, until we threw our toys out of the pram and they were reclassified as “Leytonstone and Wanstead”. But now Wanstead is officially a part of Forest Gate. Personally we blame the Wanstead Tap for blurring the lines.
In the meantime, many hearty congratulations to all these Forest Gate winners.
