user reviews of the Old Duke Of Cambridge, Mile End

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

Apparently, the old girl has finally sold up to the land developers.
A real mixed bag, this place. Pretty pokey inside but clean and tidy. Big screens showing whatever you ask for. Millie always had nibbles on offer like nuts, sausage rolls, pork pies, that kind of thing, but never got seriously into the whole ale thing so beers were pretty standard chav lagers, Guinness and the odd Sheps or Greene King offer. Clientelle always of the old fashioned Eastender type.
In a different area this pub would not have lasted but is actually the best in the area by some margin. Shame that the ever encroaching Islamic influence will mean that there will soon be no local drinkers in the area anyway. So much for multiculturalism but that's for another forum......

bit of an oddity in a decidely dodgy area--ok for a quick pint.

I used to visit this pub for the real ale, but they have stopped real ale. Also, many of the regulars seem to have gone... shame.

Is Millie still there?, had some great times here . . . Area is more like the islamic republic of Bow now. Shame . .

This is a great local family boozer. It is right opposite a kid's play area so that's good for grabbing the kids' attention while the grown-ups test the water.

They offer a fantastic pint of Spitfire at 2.80 - better than the Bow Bell's London Pride and cheaper. Good luck finding another Real Ale nearby.

The Landlady a lovely lady called Millie (her name's painted in big letters above the door, so I don't think I'm speaking out of church here).

Sandwiches are even laid on for the Sunday quiet pint brigade. What more could you want? Answer me!

Visited March 2009.

Always a good atmosphere. A small pub, which has benefited beyond belief from the smoking ban.

Took a peek in here one saturday afternoon after being recommended it by a regular at Top Of The Morning. Wasn't dissapointed. A pub - a bit like the Palm Tree in Mile End - that has been caught in time from days gone by. Small enough that the landlady could bake sausage rolls between pints for the punters, and friendly enough that friendly east-end banter was soon enough forthcoming once it was clear I wasn't in there for just a cheeky one. Bland beer selection though, but for people who look beyond beer choices aone as their method of grading pubs then this boozer a good one.

This pub is a hidden gem and well worth seeking out. It is immaculately clean, always has a real ale on, nice furniture and friendly staff and clientele. If any of the other pubs along Devons Road were even half as good as this they would be worth visiting.
