Visited during the Rainbow IPA challenge. Ambiance is nice with lively crowd, wooden interiors and nice pieces of vintage stuff hanging on the walls. Service appear to be very slow and kinda bored, at least the night I visited. Good range of house beers and other British craft, at reasonable prices. A place I’d gladly visit again, but likely upon other events as it remains extremely painful to reach for me.

First visited on 22 Nov 2012 and then many times since. A typical east end boozer, with a mix of locals, football crowds and real ale drinkers. An impressive and irresistable beer range, with a large and varied selection of the always excellent Brodies beers, plus one or two guests. One place not to be missed when in London, especially for the hopheads amongst us!!

(Visited Nov 2012 and Apr 2013) Great pub in Leyton. Quite a bit from the London city centre, but it’s not too hard to get here via tube, Victoria line to Walthamstow, and a bus towards Leyton (get off at Baker’s Arms), or a 20 minute walk. There are also buses going to Hackney, making this an excellent start on a good pub crawl including Pembury Tavern, Cock Tavern and anything else in that area. Quite a large, well kept corner pub with a lounge at the back and the Brodies brewery behind the pub. Quiet a lovely place. Excellent beer selection, with up to 12 real ales, mainly from Brodies, but with some guests. Very good range of keg beers as well, with 12 or so Brodies beers. Friendly service and good pub food available. Laid back and friendly atmosphere, with the place mainly inhabited by locals and beer geeks. Great place and well worth leaving the comfort zone of the city centre for a trip to Leyton.

Visited this pub several, first time with my parents, and it took us some time to find it :-).
Being placed a bit from the citycenter it´s not the easiest place to go to, but for sure worth the effort. They normally have a huge range of Brodies beers, both on cask, kegs and as bottles. Food is good, traditionel pub food, staff is friendly, but can at times be a bit slow. The pub is very big, but can still at times be very busy. They do now and then do small beersfestival, think the biggest one is the one at Easter.

Visited for the first time Good Friday 29.03.13 at the time of the Bunny Basher Beer Festival. We walked from our Pickets Lock campsite which is between Edmonton and Ponders Green, so a 5 mile walk got us in the mood for a beer. I must admit to being rather taken aback by the size of this place, looking at it from the outside you think you’ve entered the Tardis when stepping inside it seems far, far bigger than it ought to be. I guess there is a look of faded grandeur, and slightly worn feel but I like it, its like your favourite old jumper. Large ornate mirrors, a big impossing bar area and the pub widens out again into a large room at the rear.There was plenty of seating and despite the numbers in here it never felt to crowded until such a time as we were heading off. Service was a little tricky at times one slim, attractive, petite girl behind the bar seemed almost Morrisey like in the miserable stakes and despite my rather loud shirt I seemed totally invisible whenever it came to trying to attract her attention to order a beer, every time she somehow seemed to play this game of blatantly ignoring me. The beers were on the whole v.good. I had the ’Caramel Salt’ which lived up to its name, along with various versions of the ’Pale Ale’ and a ’Romanov Stout aged in Jack Daniels casks’ the prices mostly £2.50 a pint were incredible and with the 12% stout at just £2.70 it makes you wonder how they turn a profit, but they do, and the turnover of casks was v.brisk. A great pub that I will definately return to again.

Early Saturday evening of 16 Feb 2013. The place looked old and grubby, as did most of the customers. This large corner pub didn’t do it for me at all and I wasn’t too keen on the Brodies beers either: I’m obviuosly out of step with a lot of RB’ers. Huge TV screen in the front bar showing a football match, village hall feel to the back bar and empty glasses everywhere.
The two staff were nice enough and too busy to collect glasses: the crisps were OK. My little party of eight however were not impressed and none of us will be returning in the near future: if ever.

Large East End boozer, looks much like any other with traditional pub decor, Sky TV, music, curious collection of locals etc. But the beer is awesome with a massive choice of excellent Brodies beer on cask and keg plus a couple of guests and some bottles. Handy for the overground if not tube.

The home of Brodies and a Mecca for craft beer lovers. A wonderful old London pub oozing with character and charm. The selection of Brodies and guest ales is extensive as one might expect. Can’t wait to return and next time ill stay over!

Quite a bit away from the centre of London but that is just the way things have to be because if this was located any closer to the centre this would be just overrun within a matter of minutes. Very much a local hound which has a very old school charm to it – I can imagine Dickens getting shitfaced here – but that doesn’t mean that this place is decrepit or anything, excellent condition & upkeep and surprisingly big and very roomy. Prices for beer are phenomenal, possibly the best I have ever seen in a bar let stand alone London, considering what you are getting, truly stupendous. Seriously I doubt you can beat those prices. Draft & cask is all Brodies plus the a dash of the mainstream stuff, didn’t check out the bottles all that much but mostly Brodies stuff as well it seems – I saw some Kernel as well. That doesn’t matter since the taplist is very big, varied & appears to be rotating a lot. It must be noting the day after I was there a tap takeover was plaaned, I assume other stuff does pop-up here as well. Beers are sold by half & full pints. All of the beers served were varied in style, spot on & of high quality & fine condition. Sports were playing on the telly, adding to the overall vibe. Workers drinking pints of BA RIS. Food was satisfactory, not badly prices & British. This is the kind of place you really wouldn’t mind if it wasn’t next door. I would say this is definitely worth the trek. Quite a lovely place.
