Had a crap pint of Truman's Pale here yesterday - £5 and tasted like whatever they use to clean the taps with :(

Worst type of gastropub.... Neither gastro or pub.

A chain disguised as a 'quirky pub' .. 1.20 for a packet of crisps ? �10 for a tiny pizza .. nice decor though ..

All change in the PoW. Total refurb, new food, new beers, new staff(!) etc. The surliness of the old place never really bothered me, but its got to be an improvement, even though I expect there will be some local criticism of gentrification/price increases etc. I would agree if the old place had been a proper community local (like the Anchor) but it wasn't, it was just a wasted opportunity which thankfully Youngs have sought to put right. Location hopefully now will come into its own a bit more. Pub feels about twice the size of the old place which reflects more on the slightly gloomy atmosphere which always used to pervade in its former life. Nice Cornish beer. A decent roast. Service which doesn't make you fearful of approaching the bar.

I used to live on Lea Bridge road for 5 years - I left in 1984. This was my local and by the time I left it cost 74p a pint.
In those days it was always busy on a Friday and Saturday night - often with a local eccentric playing popular old style cockney songs on the piano.
But, I gather from reading the reviews that it hasn't really changed one little bit (though no food in my days) - the same London style utter rudeness and misery which passes for service.
I left to work abroad for ten years but when I came back I stayed clear of London. These days I'm down in Hampshire - but a couple of days ago I drove past - I'm glad I left the area.
