This place is now called the Liquor Station. It's a large place with a fairly extravagant décor. The barman was Polish and the two other customers were also Polish. Not quite sure how it survives. Bombardier and Doom Bar were the ales. Just a couple of doors up, you'll find the Wetherspoons - a similar size with many more customers, more ales and cheaper prices. Keep on walking.

Forgot to mention, did this one for Wembley Central on London Overground.

Currently visiting a pub for every station on the London Overground. Found this to be a typical high street pub, had two real ales Bombadier and Directors, only Directors was on. Considering the surrounding area though the pub was not as bad as I expected. It was clean and had comfortable interior. Had some MTV style music channel on when we entered which changed to showing Danish Speedway. Wouldn't avoid it if in the area.

When England failed to win the bid for the 2018 World Cup, it was suggested this may have been due to "goings on" at FIFA. I have an alternative, theory. I believe the delegates visited Wembley in the same way as the average fan. Namely they arrived by train at Wembley Central Statiion, an old school Eastern European style concrete dungeon, smelling of stale urine, came out into the open air to see a grim high street with Primark, Poundland and boarded up shops. Feeling thirsty they would have gone into the first pub they found, in the direction of the stadium. The Bear.
As it was a match day, the clientele were all bluenoses, so it is hard to judge what they regulars are like , but based on the state of the toilets (far worse than any O'Neills and almost as bad as the Costers), and the overall state of the place, it would be safe to assume that personal hygiene is not one of their priorities. Although the place sold a couple of ales (if Courage counts as that) I decided it would be wiser to stick to Stella. The plastic beaker it was served in, made it taste warmer and weaker that usual and left a nasty plastic taste in the mouth. All draught pints were £3.35, whether it was house lager, Guinness or premium lager, the pricing policy for match day, according to one of the old brasses serving the beer. Geezer in front of me looked horriified when he handed over a tenner for 3 pints of house lager and was told it wasn't enough. Most of the staff seemed to be typical cockney stereotypes. The glass collectors were short, potbellied, tattooed old blokes in grubby white England tops, the Doris behind the bar was revealing far too much cleavage for her age whilst the bouncers looked like extras from the Sweeney.
A few plus points. Sky Sports on a couple of big screens and the beer was 95p a pint cheaper, and despite what I've said about the quality, considerably better than the slops on sale inside the stadium.
