please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

how can i put this. a shithole . a affront.a cheeky peach schnapps with herr hitler in his damp fetid bunker in may 1945 would have been a preferable option.. and probably better company than the barmaid whose personality had long since left the building along with any east end charm or character this pub may have had. .to achieve such foul tasting flat lager the pumps must have recently been used to irrigate satans bowels.the 'vodka and coke' came in a glass so small that it was invisible to the naked human eye as was the vodka content.please can i go home.some one call for the salvation army to rescue me...

Graffiti in the Toilet, sullen Barmaid, mostly Lager available.

Only one other punter there when I called and He was unbalanced.

I drank my Lager quickly, had a "P" and left.

Ten of us visted evening of 11th August 2010. Traditional, but filthy, seedy premises. Those of us not drinking bottled products were unhappy with the quality of lager and cider - generally flat and lifeless. Female bartender's attitude very poor. Manager not available. Won't be returning.

"however I can assure you that the locals are friendly and will make you feel welcome"

Not universally the case; some of the crack heads can get quite lary.

Yes its a bit of mess, with cheap metal chairs as opposed to proper pub stools, a toilet that makes you heave, no bitter and only shit lagers but there is something about this place that I like. The karaoke is one of the best laughs in town...

apparently its for sale , perhaps we might get decent new owners that at least know how to clean a pub

Top Pub , always good laugh in here , drink with some rather strange and remarkable people.
We met stripper from the bar along the rd , city boys form aover the rd, tourist form canada . 2 very fit italian girls who came out to dinner with us after.

pub itself needs a good clean , esp the loo's but we enjoyed a good sat afternoon in here.

This pub is my local.

Being at the top of Brick Lane, this pub gets a real eclectic mix of punters, from fashionistas, tourists, locals, and indie kids. The only real ales on offer are bottled.

I once heard one customer refer to it as "the Primark of pubs" because all draught beers are 2.50 a pint, surely the cheapest in central London! They don't offer food except the usual bar snacks.

There's karaoke on a friday night which is a really good laugh, even the old geezers give it a go, which lends the evening a Chaz and Dave atmosphere.

For those from outside London this pub may feel a bit 'edgy', however I can assure you that the locals are friendly and will make you feel welcome.

NB: The WC's are possibly the worst kept in London
