The Rose and Crown, Walthamstow

Don't be put off by the cheesy 'Ye Olde Rose and Crown' signage.

We spent a nice Sunday afternoon here, tasting some of the beers they had on as part of the recent national Cask Ale week. (Current licensee has a Cask Marque, beer was well kept.)

The Waters Edge, Tottenham

This pub is closed (and has been for quite some time.)

The Ferryboat Inn, Tottenham Hale

Great location, fantastic out the back beer garden in the summer, but it suffers from being part of the massive Mitchell & Butlers property empire. Although they do serve cask ales, the current manager has a cask marque (and, to be fair, merits it), their selection is always poor (M&B "Vintage Inns" seem to be poor relations of their "Classic Inns"/Nicholson chain selection of beer - here it's almost always Fuller's London Pride, Greene King IPA, and one "guest" beer - frequently something from the GK empire) and runs out often.

Bar service is always very, very, very slow - symptomatic of the bias towards food that this pub has, but it can be slow even when you're at the front of the queue.

(and the food is not at all great, despite what some might think - it's simply mediocre "3663"/Brake Bros fare. Not even as good as what M&B offer in some of their other chains.)

I go here because it's very local. Just, if you're looking to eat, do yourself a favour and turn back towards Tottenham Hale station and visit the nearby 'Lock dining bar' restaurant instead!
