A proper, real pub in Londonís East End, serving Shepherd Neame ales in first class condition. A great atmosphere and very friendly staff and clientele. The Canterbury Jack ale was sold at just £2.75 per pint. Mainly jazz/blues background music, with some occasional live sessions. Regular quizzes. Smallish beer garden to rear. An interesting range of baguettes are available, I enjoyed the Red Leicester & Pickle whilst another in our group devoured a Brie & Salami variety. The landlord is very friendly and made a point of visiting all groups of drinkers for a chat at their table, a rather nice touch in my view. Most certainly worth a visit, even if only to see the remarkably well-preserved interior!
