An excellent pub that combines a bohemian atmosphere that mirrors the market street outside ,yet retains a feel off a traditional pub that I find rather appealing. The quality of my choice of drink which was East London Brewery, (ELB), Pale Ale ensures this will be a pub I will be keen to pay a return visit to. Has several cask beers available Crouch Vale Brewers Gold and T.T Landlord as well as the ELB and something else that now escapes me ,a range of Belgian beers and what looks like a decent menu makes this a pub well worth a visit.

Second visit here in last couple of years - TT Landlord was good - friendly and busy - unisex toilets.

Visited 9 Mar 12. Excellent pint of Crouch Vale Brewers Gold. Reasonable for this area at 3.50. I hadn't read earlier reports so didn't check my change for accurancy.

Very friday evening with PYTs. Didn't wait more than a few seconds to get served. All the tables were full at 7.30pm, but I got enough space at the end of the bar to read my paper.

I'd go back for the ale. Service for me was fine.

Went to this pub on the 14.01.12. Paid for a half and was short changed twice in the space of 30 seconds!! Owner not interested and did not take it seriously. This has never happened to me in 25 years of visiting London pubs - shocking contempt for patrons. As users have already mentioned this is an extremely busy and thriving pub - so the owner has no interest in taking seriously some serious issues here. Moral of this story always check your change - especially in this pub!!! Won't be going back here out of principle. E-mailed the owner, Paul, on the 14.01.12 for his comments. Failed to even have the decency to reply. Customer service, staff attitude already warning signs from other posts - so I'll leave it there. Shame as the pub is a nice one with a good selection of beers. Just the wrong crowd running it - have no idea about customer care - even Weatherspoons serve you quicker than in here.

Visited this pub on a Saturday afternoon, wrong time and wrong pub to walk into.

Crowded in the upstairs bar, so we moved to the back bars which were quite nook and crannyish but all the more better for it. What staggered us was the price. A half a pint of cider ( dont know what brand or whether it was hand pressed by golden haired virgins) cost 3.90, yep thats right 3.90. We went back to check the price with the bar staff who both said that that was the price and that they dont make the price, just work there. All with a surly dismissive attitude at that.

Wont be visiting here again, its full of people trying just a bit too hard, and there are much better pubs in the near vicinity that actually manage to maintain some of their east end roots, and at a lot cheaper price.
