Probably the archetypal East London craft beer pub (along with Clapton Hart) - proper working men's pub, shabby look, loads of cask and keg micros, posh burgers, and close to a completely 20s crowd on a midweek evening. Felt very old, but hard to fault.

Popped in last night to meet friends and had several pints of Redemption Hopspur, which was excellent.
Only grumble was the £5 a pint, it is officially the most expensive beer that I have ever bought. Queried the price with the barman, and he was adamant that £5 was the correct price......but next round was 2 pints of Hopspur and a glass of Rioja, and that came in at £11.50. So either the wine is bloody cheap here, or the first barman was making up prices that made it easy for him.

Popped into The Sebright Arms as it had a mention in the newly published “Craft Beer London” book (page 76) and can say that the write up did it fair justice.
Four cask ales were being pulled that evening, Two from Redemption “Rock the Kazbek”4.0% and “Urban Dusk” 4.6% and Two from East London Brewery ”Foundation Bitter” 4.2% and “Quadrant” an oatmeal stout at 5.9%, gorgeous can only slightly describe this wonderful stout. Some chap called Arthur in Dublin has got a lot of catching up to do if he wants to knock out a stout as good as this.
We were made very welcome by the bright and happy bar staff who offered a sample if we wanted to try before selecting. Thought best if we had a pint of each, so we could give an accurate opinion, (my excuse) and found all beers in excellent condition. A nice touch was that each beer pump had a small plaque describing what to expect.
As we were too late to try out the “Lucky Chip” catering, renowned for producing some of the best burgers in London, we will have to make another visit. Shame that, will probably have to try the latest four draft ales again. Life’s so damn hard.
Great old character style pub that has been saved from demolition, well worth a visit, but do seem strict on closing time. Stopped serving three minutes early the night we were in, so don’t hang about.

paid a visit on the strength of a beer festival that was advertised, difficult to be too critical but the place was stuplidly overcrowded - several hundred spilled out onto the street, the beer festival however well intentioned was very badly organised - tokens were needed to purchase the beers from a corner of the pub separate from the bar area. There was a fairly lengthy queue for the beer BUT the only indication that you needed to purchase tokens in order to purchase beer was an A4 sheet hanging below eye level obscured by customers so along with many others having queued once then had to go back to be bar then queue again. Beer from the festival casks served in plastic glasses, makes sense if your going outside but beers purchased from the bar - no such restriction. Beer lists for the festival virtually non existant, if you were lucky enough to find one a fair number of the beers were either bottles only or only available at the bar - again all very confusing. After one pint we just gave up hopped on the 55 bus to Clerkenwell and enjoyed a very chilled evening at CaskBeerCo - a permanent beer festival.

The beer festival and the pub are obviously victims of its own success so i dont want to sound too negative and i think i might just drop by again on a quieter evening and hopefully enjoy a more positive experience

Pub's reopened under new management 3 weeks ago!

Indeed it was almost relegated to the recent gentrification of Tower Hamlets, destined to become apartments like so many other pubs long gone from around the area. But thanks to local petitioning & new owners its back on track & open from 5 Monday thru Saturday, & doing Sunday roasts from midday till 7. Kitchen's open every evening as well.

Beer range boasts several locally sourced ales (Brodie's, London Fields, Sambrooks), lager and wheat beer (Meantime), as well as a few imports & standards like Krombacher, Heineken, Guiness & Leffe.

Definitely worth a look if for nothing but curiosity's sake - events also happening in the downstairs venue during the week (comedy, kareoke..) and weekends (DJs, theme nights).
