Just to clear up some misconceptions. The Wild Card Brewery never at any point owned or managed The Warrant Officer. They briefly operated out of the pub's premises and now have their own premises near Walthamstow Village. All improvements to the pub are the work of the current owner/landlord Rob Richier.

This is now one of Walthamstow's premier music venues and the best place in the area for hearing great quality original music. The pub has hosted three 3-day music festivals in 2014 and more than 50 different acts have played here since September 2013.

It may be a bit off the beaten track but the W15 bus stops right outside the door and can be picked up from Walthamstow Central, St James Street and Blackhorse Road Stations. Four people in a cab would actually cost less per head than the bus.

This is a great little boozer which always has good quality guest ales, fine Sunday lunches, Sunday afternoon jazz and music every Saturday night.

A fantastic pub in a not-too-great area. The staff are wonderful, welcoming and chatty. Always willing to help, allowing tasters of the ales and a professional service.

The pub also has many live bands playing down there and you can see that the management have given this some serious consideration. Not just covers bands playing loudly and badly, but folk, rock, jazz, blues, etc artists playing originals and clearly with tons of talent.

Worth a visit, but keep the phone number of a cab company in your pocket. Only other option is a single bus that goes in Walthamstow. and don't think about taking a "stroll" around the local area.

I visited this pub for the first time yesterday as I was in the area for a festival in the nearby park. I was pleased to discover there was a beer festival taking place in the pub and particularly enjoyed the Oatmeal Porter! I found it a pleasant and comfortable pub with a nice atmosphere, decent ale, and live music in the form of an 'Open mic' evening. It is now run by the Wild Card Brewery who seem determined to make something of the place - I enjoyed my visit and would certainly go back again.

WILD CARD BREWERY presently based on the same industrial estate as Brupond Brewery has recently taken over this pub. A beer festival to follow in June; and another in June to mark Walthamstow Street Food Festival.

Hope to do limited brewing there in due course.
