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!!

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 itís 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.

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. Doesnít get much better than this. Another must visit on a trip to London.
