Large single storey Wetherspoons that apparently is named after the Danish King of England from 1013!

After a brisk walk from Lea Road station this is the first pub at the start of the pedestrianized shopping street. Shortly before 11am when I arrive and the place is three quarters full already, food and drink proving popular in equal measures.

The long bar that runs the length of the right hand wall has 2 banks of 5 hand pumps, across these 8 pumps have ales on with 5 choice's. Ruddles Best, Sharps Doombar and 3 local brews. I opt for a pint of Black Horse Brewing Executioners Assistant @ 4.3%, a decent pale ale and the perfect beer to start what should be a long day.

Fairly swift service from the all female bar staff. Standard 'spoons decoration that doesn't feel tired, the tables and floors are clean.

A tick from the 2017 GBG oh and of course the ales is cheap at £2.09 a pint.

Now back under the watchful eye of Amanda this pub has really had a turnaround with the choice and quality of its beer.

A pleasant enough place. Plenty of real ales on at my visit and were on form. Staff are friendly, the food was ok and didnt take too long to appear. There is a nice sheltered beer garden ok for a few beers on a sunny day. Toilets are tidy but as normal in some Spoons are a bit of a climb! Shall visit this one again.
