|Must have been a sight to behold in its day. You can still see the line in the ground where they opened up the lounge and the salon bar. The massive back room was most likely a billiards hall, now with horrible laminate flooring. I still found some evidence of nice stained glass on the back windows and in the toilets, and also what looked like a blocked-up dumbwaiter. The central bar area survives and is very attractive. |
Overall, this pub is well worth a visit if you are in the area. I was in there on a Saturday afternoon (Leyton Orient must have been playing away) and there were about a dozen friendly regulars dotted around, reading newspapers and watching football.
I for one hope this place remains how it is, as I love nothing better than a crossword and a pint in a pub like this on a Saturday afternoon.

|Scruffy but had a certain charm to it. Wallpaper falling of the wall and looked like its not been decorated in about thirty years. However friendly enough and served its purpose. Would return for a pre- match pint.|

|Two handpulls, but both turnround so no ale. Lager served in plastic containers on football days - overall lively with Col U fans but beer pretty poor IMO.|

|Vast no-frills pub close to Leyton Orient FC, although seems to be frequented more by away supporters. Handy for pre-match as it offers cheap food if you don't want a pie in the ground. Expensive on the beer front though - a pint of Kronenberg and a pint of Coke came to almost £7. |

|This is not just a football pub. On a Wednesday evening there is a Blues Jam in the back function room. Always a good selection of musicians and a different guest every week. Well worth the £2 entrance if you like Blues.|
Usual Keg beers but they do have Courage Best (Wells) which is just about OK. Found one of the barman to be a bit obnoxious but the others were OK. Sometimes smells of stale cooking fat from the kitchen.
Nice big pub, not scruffy inside but the coloured lights are a bit over the top.
Worth a visit on a Wednesday for the music.
