user reviews of the Galvanisers Union, Bow

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

This is on the site of what used to be the Duke of Wellington and there the similarities end, thank God.
The whole place has a steampunk/ shabby chic look and feel with brass chandeliers, old workbenches, beaten up sofas, peeling paint on some walls, bold patterned brand new wallpaper on others. This is entirely deliberate and has been designed to appeal to the growing hipster influx to the East End. The advantages are that clientele are vibrant, cool and well behaved, the downside is the amount of beards and curly moustaches.
Ale is usually 3 or 4 handpumps, generally an Adnams, Doom Bar and some local brews, plus some pressurised IPAs and lagers.
Food is snacky but quite arty and appropriately priced.
The big drawback in my opinion is the 16:00 opening time. I'm sure it would tick along quite nicely with a lunchtime session available, so if the owner is reading.....
All in all, by far the best drinking establishment in the vicinity and will continue to be (until the hipsters get bored and move on).
