The Widow's Son

75 Devons Road, Bow Common, E3
Tel: (0) 171 515 9072
Tube: Devons Road

Inn also known as 'the Bun House,' from the time a widow inhabited the house and put aside a hot crossed bun for her son returning home from sea. When he did not arrive, she hung one from the ceiling in mourning. Sailors, to this day, repeat the ceremony every Good Friday.
