Tales from the Two Puddings
A cultural touchstone for the East End in the 1960s, The Two Puddings on Stratford Broadway was known for its rowdy camaraderie, live music, the dance floor that might have constituted the UK’s first disco, and its wide-ranging, often colourful clientele. Just a few miles away from the swinging streets of Soho was a place no less vibrant for its freewheeling atmosphere, a place where the writer of the Long Good Friday got his inspiration, where David Essex first performed, where football manager Harry Redknapp met his wife, and where Matt Johnson of TheThe grew up. A fascinating insight into East London’s vibrant history.
