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 itīs 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 youíve 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 íCaramel Saltí which lived up to its name, along with various versions of the íPale Aleí and a íRomanov Stout aged in Jack Daniels casksí 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 didnít do it for me at all and I wasnít too keen on the Brodies beers either: Iím obviuosly out of step with a lot of RBíers. 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. Canít 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 Ė I can imagine Dickens getting shitfaced here Ė but that doesnít 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, didnít check out the bottles all that much but mostly Brodies stuff as well it seems Ė I saw some Kernel as well. That doesnít 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 wouldnít mind if it wasnít next door. I would say this is definitely worth the trek. Quite a lovely place.

Big and rangy pub in a hectic part of London. Easy to get to from the underground and multiple buses along Hoe Street. Lots of choice at good value, friendly, plenty of space to sit and really good value food, the Sausages and Mash was great. Well conditioned beer, very good.

Iím lucky enough to live within walking distance of this pub, one of my favourites in London. manages to be a proper old fashioned east London boozer, while at the same time brewery tap for one of the best craft brewers in the country. Always has a fantastic range of Brodies beers on cask, keg and bottle, plus a few guest taps from the likes of Magic Rock, Dark Star etc...

The King William IV is an excellent brewpub located far up in north London. I have to admit that Iíve hesitated to visit this place at it seems like a real trek to get to. Also, the small handful of Brodieís beers I tried before my visit didnít impress me very much. But after an eye-opening visit to the King William IV yesterday, I have to admit I was wrong about Brodieís beers and my aversion to to traveling up here. This place is excellent; the beers on offer are both interesting and tasty. The pubís a classic boozer populated mostly by locals. It has a real lived-in, traditional feel. Beer geeks are not this pubís main stream of income, itís very much a local hang out. Still, youíre met with a warm welcome. Thereís plenty of seating, and large windows allow plenty of natural light into the pub. The beers on offer are plentiful. Thereís something like 20 casks and 15 kegs. A massive selection of Brodieís beers are on offer, along with well-chosen guests such as Magic Rock. Thereís also macro crap available for the casual punter. On my visited I tried a Brett IPA, a few offerings from their single hop series, as well as a Imperial Stout collaboration Brodieís did with Mikkeller. All beers were in good condition, and were of great quality. The valueís fantastic, cask beers are especially cheap. Overall, I look forward to coming back here. Despite its peripheral location, this pubs well worth a visit. Great.

Home of Brodies Brewery. The pub feels as if it hasnít changed since forever, charming and somewhat quirky. Having said that, the pub can be hit or miss regarding beer cellar quality, which is disappointing. Festival time is always fun though, with many, many beers on offer. Brodies have really picked up their game and producing top notch, exciting beers. Do yourself a favour and pay a visit when in town, itís worth the detour. Oh, and has anyone mentioned the £1.99 pints!!
