I visited the place for the first time last night - the live music was the reason I was there. I thought it was a nice old fashioned boozer - I like like pubs to be like PUBS not some trendy bar. This place is a bit shabby but has plenty of character - like pubs used to be. So many pubs at the moment are being ruined by bland refurbs which remove their old charm and character so it's nice to find one that hasn't been ruined yet.

The locals and regulars seemed OK and the bar staff were well on the ball - I always got served quickly and they remembered what I was drinking. It was disappointing on the real ale front though: Two of the four pumps weren't in use - including the Bass which this pub seems best known for. No IPA either, so I was left with a choice of Spitfire or Doombar. I went for the Spitfire as the least worst option - I would have preferred something stronger. The Spitfire wasn't up to much but was OK - I have never been impressed with this ale anyway - rather over-rated in my opinion. It was a very reasonable £3.60 a pint so no complaints about the prices. The Spitfire ran out towards the end of the evening leaving only the Doombar on tap from the four real ale pumps - not impressive or likely to encourage me to go back although the live music might tempt me.

Overall I quite liked the character of the pub, but the ales were a let-down and a lot more effort could have been made in that department.

After a swift half in the Waltham Forest Corporation Sports & Social Club, I rounded off my East London crawl in the Flower Pot. Live music was on offer yesterday evening. That's not normally my cup of tea. Doom Bar & Bass were the real ales. The pub itself is quite pleasant, with a central bar and drinking are on 3 sides, in addition to an outdoor area to the side of the pub. Friendly service. But a bit too noisy for my liking.

A bit of a dive. Unfriendly staff, dark, miserable/oppressive atmosphere, poorly kept ales. Try some of the many other pubs in the neighbourhood - Coach and Horses, Village, and Nags Head are good, so Is the Goose opposite the station. Don't even go in to use the toilet
