|Charles Wells branded pub (image 2 appears more current)|
No real ale, Bombardier on keg was, I think, £3.60.
Busy pub with a good atmosphere early on a Monday night.

|Popped in for a very quick drink on my way to Dagenham. What an amazing pub. Kind of place you read about or see in Eastend TV programs. Loved it. Really friendly and made everybody welcome. This is a real pub, run by real pub folk. If tourists wanted a proper example of a London pub look no further, but I guess tourists swarming all over it would ruin the atmosphere. Shame no real ale, and that's why it loses one point.|

|Good old fashioned London pub with friendly staff but, and this is a huge but for me, no real ale of any description. Wide choice of lager, draught and bottles so, given the wide choice of bottled ale in supermarkets would it not be possible to stock a small selection?|

|Being in London in early February of this year, I went to East London for an afternoon, got thirsty from walking, and stumbled upon the Wentworth Arms. |
Big luck - jackpot. Authentic as can be, a real London pub which I would have to search for for quite a while in central London.
Friendly and entertaining guests and barkeeper; treat them nicely and they will treat you even nicer, they are honest and down-to-earth folks.
This is a genuine piece of the old working class culture in a neighborhood where you would not expect it to have survived.
No beer on tap but bottled beer is something I can well live with, and also one simple kind of pub grub as solid basis for more beer would make this place above perfect, but I am far from complaining.
If my travel money would not have been limited due to the strong GBP rate I would have stayed there until closing time.
Thanks to the great people there for a great stay with great chats and treating me as part of the family. I will return gladly to this friendly island of genuine Englishness where I already felt at home from the first swig of beer on.

|Great East End back street boozer that survived the blitz. No cask, but great atmosphere.|
