Nice old fashioned style pub with friendly, informative , helpful staff. Good selection of ales and great burgers. Well worth a visit.

Was very impressed by this pub on my visit today. It's clearly an old pub that has been renovated, but still maintains some original features. The central bar dominates the front room. I didn't see the rear room. The drinks range was also better than I expected - By The Horns Stiff Upper Lip, Sambrooks Wandle, Ascot Single Hop & East London Night Watchman. The board displaying the beers also had Ascot Anastasia Exile Stout & Ossett Silver King, which were both off. So either the board hadn't been updated for a while, or it indicates that the beers turn over quite quickly. Either way, this was a good selection. There also appeared to be a good bottle selection, as well as 2 real ciders - Westons Old Rosie & Thatchers Heritage. Sunday roasts were being served. The barmaid that served me was helpful and knowledgeable. I must admit that I haven't been to the Dalston/Kingsland area for a while, preferring to avoid it. But this pub is worth the journey alone and the area itself appears to be on the up.

It's a pub that sells beer and provides seating. It doesn't do much more than that. The place has been "done up" in an uninspired manner that leaves the place looking cold and unfinished and unremarkable. It can be seen that there is an attempt to make this a trendy modern pub with a focus on beer, but it has been done in a lacklustre manner, so the overall impression is indifference, which matches the service. Reviews have mentioned food and bar snacks, but there were none in evidence on our visit on a Saturday morning, and there was no attempt to let our party know of any snacks other than packets of crisps. Sigh - can't they really do any better than that? There were three dull casks on offer, but so dull that half our party elected for bottled beer. The Wandle ale I had was, like the service and the pub, somewhat indifferent and not in best condition. Best thing about the place was the music. Not a pub I warmed to, and with the Snooty Fox and Railway Tavern not far away, I don't see any reason why I would ever want to come back.
