Good pub with decent drink in a quieter part of Whitechapel and just round corner from the famed Wilton's Music Hall. Previous poster is right about the Brasso, popular landlord was slapping it onto the outside windows all yesterday afternoon.

Great pub, friendly service.
Nice shiny brass on the outside. Someone obviously knows how to use the Brasso!

Ok bar, great girls on shift. Beer was very good as was the atmosphere. One thing I was not to impressed was some of the clientèle.I was stared at by 2 groups from when I walked in to when I left after my 2nd pint.

Would I return? not too sure, but if I did I would have to bring a posse.

Well-appointed Victorian pub with good-looking horseshoe bar. Have tasted better pints of Doom Bar but it was still perfectly drinkable. Not much atmosphere, however, so left after one.

Popped in last night after an excellent curry at the Indian three or so doors down. Not busy but very welcoming. Had the Adnams (the only beer on out of three clips) but was a good pint. We spent a good three hours here until closing time and enjoyed every minute so wouldn't hesitate to go back if we are ever in this part of London again.
