This place is now called the People's Park Tavern. It's situated on the edge of Victoria Park. The outdoor seating areas at the rear were packed when we arrived yesterday, with many families. There is even a crazy golf course in the garden for kids. There was seating available inside, with some people having meals. I believe there was further seating upstairs. Getting served was a bit of a chore though. There were plenty of staff, just too many customers. Ales are brewed on the premises by Laines. But there were only 3 of them - Doubloon, Single Hop Series Summit & Red Empire. There was no real cider either. A bit disappointing and too busy to enjoy. I got the feeling there were normally more ales and possibly cider. But on this visit, this place was distinctly average.

having first reviewed this in early 2009, when it was in early days of its revamp, time for an update.

firstly, staff need to lighten up a bit. we know you're a little busier, but try not to take yourselves too seriously. Those Time out nominations seem to have gone to the head a little.

food is a bit of a mixed-bag. Quality when its arrived has overall been very sound, but it has been subject to some bewildering delays (did we actually forget to order?). I've also been confronted with some pretty abrupt 'no, unless you've reserved a table' comments when asking to eat - I know there's the fancy restaurant bit at the back, and the average age of customer is probably about 12 given the number of toddlers raoming around, but the place is essentially still, well, a pub, and one that claims to 'serve food'.

on the positive though beer has always been excellent, and some great guest ales. Still a good garden space. Still better than the Inn on the Park. Not as good as the Kenton.

a 6 from an 8.

Its right on the park with a big garden. but hold your horses: it is very expensive. Went in with a mate, ordered a bottle of (Koppenburg? is that how you spell it?) cider and a pint of Star. I handed over a tenner and got �1.90 back. Barman should have had a mask and a pistol. After all, over �4 per drink is highway robbery, London prices or not. Nice pub, roomy inside, lots of bright young things having a good time, good location, but you need deep pockets.

Went in February with about fifteen people. While some of the staff were charming, we got possibly one of the rudest barmen/waiters ever. Also the vegetarian roast consisted of a plate of mashed potato, a few green beans and a bit of roast swede. No attempt to replace the meat and not a roast dinner either. Batter puddings were charged as extra. The waiter told the waitress off for putting out too many spoons when they served dessert and we felt oh so welcome. All in all, next time we go out for a fifteen person meal we'll be taking our custom elsewhere.
