Busy pub next to a busy market. Nice dark interior with nooks and crannies. Tim Taylor and Brewers Gold tend to be on cask a lot, and I thought the condition seemed good on every occasion Iíve been here. Nice classic old pub.

Very going on a Tuesday night. Just popped in for one since it was on my way after getting the bright idea to walk home from Cock Tavern. Very nice service from a young bloke, fairly knowledgeable too. Told me they specialized in Belgian stuff while I was looking for local. They did have East London Brewingís bitter on cask though so nice enough. A bit pricey.

Sister bar of the Dovetail located on the achingly hip Broadway Market. Nice, cheery ambiance. The place was heaving on my Saturday afternoon visit. Despite this, the service was friendly, attentive. The selectionís large, but not particularly interesting. Mostly your run of the mill Belgian options. Still, they sell Orval, so how bad can this place be? Thereís also some random stuff on cask. The food was pretty cheap, but not especially tasty. Prices were decent, fair. Overall, this is a solid option if youíre in a fix for some Belgian beer. Otherwise, thereís better places within walking distance.

Nice place. Mostly Belgian stuff on offer, though six casks keep it interesting. Average prices. Lots of tables on two floors of seating. Food looks good, although I wasnít eating on my visit. Lively atmosphere on Saturday afternoon. As there are relatively few Belgian-focused beer bars in London, this place does fill a niche, and it does so reasonably well; however, while the Dove does have a respectable bottle list, donít expect any ultra-rare Belgian beers - itís mostly more common stuff. Worth a stop if youíre in the neighborhood.

A cold, snow covered London greeted me as I drew the curtains in my brothers flat late on this February Sunday morning in 2012: had we really drank that much last night? Anyway the plan had always been to walk through the park and visit The Dove for a lunchtime session: the four of us set off and half an hour later or so we entered the place. The bar has a good selection of Belgian beers on tap as well as hand pulls for cask UK ales: I had a Bruges Zot Blonde and a Delirium from the taps and later a pint of Brookmanís Winter Ale from Tring Brewery on cask. All were in fine order. The actual pub is on two levels, we dropped down into the back room and managed to find a table, which we shared with a couple of young ladies: the place was very full with more piling in by the minute. Once seated I had a good look through the beer menu and because I am a regular visitor to Belgium I found nothing to excite me, but donít let that put you off coming here, they might have your favourite beer in the menu. Looking around and taking in the scenes I notice wood everywhere, under foot as well as the furniture and fittings. The whole inside is nicely done and feels homely, even down where we were, right at the back. Service was good, swift and polite, even though the place was busy. This is a popular eating place as well as a Belgian Beer Bar: we choose not to eat, my brother informing us the prices didnít match the quality or quantity given.

Belgium beer bar in East london. Full of hipsters on the weekend. Selection is only belgiums in bottles so can get boring. But they have some good cask beers. Some interesting food like wild boar burger and etc.

Interior is funky and bar is situated on a superb shopping street. Belgian beers are the major attraction here: donít expect to be blown away by the cask selection. This place is super for locals, but uninteresting for tourists in a quest for real ales.
