The Full Pour
As if the Bethnal Green location wasn't enough, you should know that there are now a spectacular 4 Mother Kelly's locations around London. Those include: Bethnal Green (23 taps), Vauxhall (33 taps), Well Street (8 taps) and Church Street (6 taps). All four are featured on their main website, including information on the bottle shop specifics, addresses, etc.
From a historical perspective, the mother ship of the Mother Kelly's is the original Bethnal Green location, which is the main subject of the photos and details of this Full Pour. With that said, though, they are all (of course) extremely worthy candidates for further exploration as you move about the London metro area. The original Mother Kelly's is built within a repurposed railway arch, right in the core of Bethnal Green. It is literally steps from the Bethnal Green tube station, has a sizable outdoor area (Vauxhall has 2), features 23 taps and is lined with one of the longest rows of beer fridges you'll find in London. If you seriously cannot find something to your liking in here, there might just be no pleasing you.
Why is this on THL?
Mother Kelly's seems to know a thing or two about how to assemble a top notch beer venue. It has been said that the Bethnal Green location is modeled with a New York City concept in mind, and it shows. To go a bit further, they also seem to embrace a little bit of Southern California too. This is evident in the deep partnership with the delicious London food truck scene, with routine visits from Thursday to Sunday. While the charcuterie and artisanal cheeses were of high quality on the last visit to this location, it's certainly nice to know that a food truck convoy can save your day if the session with your friends runs longer than what you originally had anticipated. For sure, it's easy to see that scenario unfolding here.
