The Prospect of Whitby, Wapping

Before entering, go down Pelican steps onto the foreshore, sniff the history. After that the pub, newly redecorated but with the bar top intact and in it's state of architectural chaos, can still delight. On a lovely evening it was a pleasure to loll over the terrace rail and watch the river go by. Drink was O.K. - the food will wait on another visit. Staff were pleasant.

Sorry - amendment to my previous, which should read "over forty years later..." Thanks.

The Blind Beggar, Whitechapel

Oh dear! My use of this place goes back to the difficult days of the 1960s but when you could get a marvellous pork and onion roll in Bloom's bread, but left before 8 in the evening. It served beautiful beer, originally from the then-attached brewery. Now - after over twenty years later almost unrecognisable. The bar is totally out of shape compared with the inside of the building (go - youll see what I mean). I drank formula cider. There are, though, two very good points : an especially fine beer garden and a superb cat, whose deportment suggested that he was actually the licencee!. But is there a decent pub on Whitechapel High Strret now? I feel sorry for the staff of the world's best hospital across the road; they deserve better.
