Some friends and I stopped off here on the way to Tayyabs. As it was a warm evening, most people were sitting in the open area, which looked quite pleasant. The building itself is quite nondescript. There are a few items on the wall documenting the pub's notorious past with the Krays. There was some not well kept Adnams Southwold bitter and their own watery tasting pale ale on the handpump. The prices, at just under a fiver a pint, are astonishing, even by London standards. I wouldn't bother. The pub a few doors down - The White Hart - is much better, and cheaper.

Being the sad old gits that we are (a group of 30 and 40 somethings), caught the train down from Liverpool for one of our historic pub tours.
The Beggar was the first stop simply because of the Krays background. Place was deserted when we arrived with only a chap painting up a ladder, we did get served by a dour barman and ended up sitting by the open fire drinking our overpriced beers looking for the spot where Cornell got it.
Dull and hardly worth the visit, maybe they are trading on past exploits?

A very bland pub completely lacking in soul or character, a pint of Peroni (I know, I know but it was a hot day) here will set you back £5.

Barman approached me and as a form of greeting just raised an eyebrow, none of the usual courtesies expected from someone serving the public, but after another pint of Courage Best Bitter I thought I would try a little small talk and surprisingly he turned out to be quite an affable chap. Lets put it down to the fact that there isnt an Englishman serving behind a bar anywhere in the Eastend any longer. Also maybe they could address the little problem of their drains, every now and then the most orrible nift permeated the bar.

This must be the most expensive pub in the East End, 4.00 a pint of Pride.. shame as the beer garden is nice and not many of them around anymore..
