Very cool place. Cool beer tap plates all over the wall and bar area. Great bottle selection and a good selection on tap including 3 of their own cask ales. Service is friendly and efficient. Can also recommend which I always like. Solid value. Really good place and will be back for sure

I love the rake and utobeer as a company. So when I heard they had opened a brewpub I had to visit. What I wasnít convinced about though was that it was in a shopping mall. To get here I had to go through the mall which was quite annoying,but when I got there the atmosphere was very relaxed, friendly and pleasant. Service was great with friendly smiling bar man. And the ambience wasnít bad at all considering itís in a mall. Very very neat clean and tidy place which made a nice changed to stuffy old London pubs. Well worth the visit! Oh and their own beers are quite good and very very reasonably priced!

A very nice place and a very laid back atmosphere, at least on a Wednesday afternoon. Maybe the shopping mall location isnít the nicest, but at least the Great Eastern Market seems fairly nice for a mall thing. Unfortunately the selection wasnít too good when I visited. Only two of their own on tap, and five or six others. Not sure why so many taps were empty. Or maybe I just wasnít looking.

We visited here on Friday 17th May 2013, it was relatively close to London City Airport where we we heading. It was very easy to find, we sort of stumbled across it when exiting the station. My first impression was that it was much smaller than I expected, but it was well laid out with a nice selection of stools, high tables and comfy sofas. The beer choice was as one might expect very good witha Japanese Imperial IPA and a couple of good beers from Oakham on when we arrived and service also decent. Despite all of the positives I didnít like it as much as I expected I would. The large screen TV which no one watched but everyone had to endure was a bit of an annoyance but other than that I am not really sure quite what it was that didnít quite appeal to me, maybe the location, but on reflection having a bar selling great beer somewhere like this can only be a positive, maybe I should just give it another go perhaps?

The setting, on the edge of a shopping mall makes a pleasant change from all the olde worlde pubs! A modern brew pub whose beers can be very good, it also has many guest beers, domestic/foreign, cask/keg and many bottles too. A sister pub of the famous Rake pub in Borough Market. Also sells foreign beer by the third, half and pint. As on the edge of the shopping mall there is space for overspill outside on a concrete "no mans land" where they have put a few tables and benches. A welcome addition with variation to Londonís beer scene.If you get the Docklands light railway to Stratford International it is that side of the shopping mall so saves a stressful walk through the shopping area!

First of all this is in the Westfield Stratford, which frankly, having visited it once to go to Tap East, Iím highly unlikely to go again. Rammed full of people, so way too crowded for me on a Sunday. Tap East sits at the back in a very nice food hall, so if youíre going to visit any part of it, this bit was worthwhile. The bar is functional and not really great on the ambiance front, but it has a really good range of beers. Three cask taps featuring Tap East beers and then about 10 keg taps with some interesting choices. Fridges were really good and had a nice eclectic selection of bottles including lots of American, Italian, Norwegian and Danish choices. However, food was pretty bloody awful so do not order food in here. It looks like reheated burgers circa: before the gourmet burger was invented. Greasy burger, limp lettuce, microwaved bacon and dry bun.

Visited for the first time very recently, it is certainly in an unusual location for a UK Brewpub, not sure I have come across many others in a Shopping precinct. The beer range is, of course, very good and apparently changes quite often. I found it to be a little utilitarian though, just a little too cut down and uncomfortable to want to spend all afternoon in there. We just tried beers from the handpulls so cannot judge the bottles, but there looks to be a decent choice. We had food in the Tapas bar next door which was very good. All in all certainly worth a visit.

Was lucky enough to visit Tap East during the Olympics, was only there for a short time but was suitability impressed with what I found. For the size of the place it presented fair selection of draught and bottled beers including beer brewed on the premises. A perfect example of a small form craft bar, a must visit venue when in Stratford.

Westfield in Stratford must be the biggest shopping centre Iíve ever seen. At the rear end, next to a Waitrose store, this oasis of a pub and microbrewery can be found. Medium-sized, four sided room with a modern decor. Three of their own, fine made ales on cask and three guest ales on cask. In addition a wide selection of ten beers on tap from breweries like Summer Wine, Brains and even from the Norwegian Haandbryggeriet. The range of bottled beers is also worth seeking out. Smiling and friendly service from a barmaid who was eager to offer samples of the Tap East brews. With a bus station, railway station and a tube station the pub/microbrewery is easy accessible. We took bus no.104 from Boleyn Ground and Upton Park (WHU-Man C 0-0) to Stratford and spent a few joyful hours here drinking well kept beers and eating a decent pepperoni pizza (visited, 03.11.2012).
