Very traditional English Bar that brews Brodies Ales. Nice atmosphere. 14 functioning taps including 2 for Magic Rock. Helpful staff. Beer £2 a pint. Live Scottish football on TV. Doesn’t get much better than this. Another must visit on a trip to London.

This pub is fantastic. Very old and intriguing, just like a step back in time with a stunning interior and fascinating items hung on the walls. Ambience is sound with good. classic jazz on the stereo and London drinker for literature.. Laid back or what? The beer is all Brodie’s with, sadly, some inbev-ab and Dieago regulars but the Brodie’s beers is where it counts. And count - it truly does. Brodie’s also make some great ecletic and innovate ranges and I had a great time sampling halfs and realising how boring many other breweries are. The value is stunning. Good beer and this cheap, come on, how? This is an education for how to run a good ol English boozer and they’re rare now. This is what you want to experience in England!. A hen’s tooth in a landmine of broken pubs and posh bars.

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.

I love here, i love brodies, Beer is great, beer is too cheap (£2 a pint) there beer is so much better than the price might suggest. Food is incredible value, always a good selection of beers, and there inventive with it, Brewery in a large shed out the back... really there nothing not to love about this place

It took me quite a while to pluck up the courage (and effort) to trek out to Leyton to visit this place for the first time. It is very much worth the effort to get there. Get the tube to Leyton, then a bus from outside the tube station drops you outside the pub. I have visited both during the festivals and at regular times. The interior is proper east end boozer. 20 Casks on offer of mostly Brodies beers (including some weird and wonderful concoctions) and some other favourite microbreweries. I do believe the Brodies beers have been getting a lot better of late. They also have a fridge of some of their bottles, but it’s so bloody dark that I always have to ask what they have! Price of beer is second to none in London - £1 for a half or £1.99 for a pint, no matter what the alcohol percentage. Food is cheap and cheerful. A must visit in London.

20 different beers made by Brodie’s brewery, all fresh, served on cask. Interesting variety made of the english classics plus funky styles like saison. Prices are the lowest I saw in London at 2.00£ a pint. Place is huge and awfully decorated which give it its charm. A must-see for real ale lovers.

Stayed three nights at the B&B. Super friendly owner and staff. Wide selections of cask beers available. With a few mainstream lager exceptions the selection is limited to Brodied. But that selection is not bad, around 10 casks open and frequently changing from day to day. Everything from classic British standards to Belgium inspired and many hop experiments. Very reasonably prices and that goes for the food and the bed as well. Had a nice feeling of staying at an authentic local. Plenty of seats and actually not that difficult to reach, just make sure to check to bus routes from the nearest subway station. Recommendable.

Be warned this pub is a LONG walk from Leyton tube! 25 mins at least. Not quite as far is Walthamstow tube but still a trudge.
Lovely airy old Victorian pub. Quite startling to see this place still standing proud on the high street. What we have here (and we could really do with more of these) is a proper Brewpub. Visiting at festival time there was 16 Brodies beers on tap and another 10 bottles in the fridge. The bottles are available for takeaway and discounted for a carboard mixed 6 pack.
Atmosphere is good with lots of friendly locals whom seem to be quite grateful for this gem of pub they have. Even heard people chanting the brewers name! Service is generally pretty good although they do get busy Saturday afternoon and evening.
The beers cover almost the entire range, IPAs, stouts, fruit beers, wit - you name it! Plus you get some nice cutting edge beers like the 22% abv Elizabeathen and chilli spiced Dunkel Weissen. Standards are high - of the 20 odd beers I tried here only the Pink Pride seemed a little off.
Did not try the food although they were roasting a whole hog outside. Well worth a visit this pub - doubly so at festival time. If you like old fashioned pubs and decent beer you won’t go wrong here.

A great place. I came here for the Brodies Easter festival in spring 2011. The cask selection is immense and you would really need to apply yourself if you hope to get through them all. This pub is quite a trek from Central London, but the considerable upside is that beers are inexpensive, to the tune of something like two quid per pint (unless you’re after something like the Elizabethan, which is more than the reagular offerings but still pretty cheap). During the festival they had some nice food options.The pub itself is pretty traditional, with plenty of seating and a nice ambience. If you have some time on your hands and want to sample some of Brodies’ finest this is THE place to go.

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!
