I’m 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...
Visited a few times but latterly during the Brodies Bunny bash. More beers than usual on, prices were really decent, as is normal.
Beer was well kept and a great selection.
Been here other times and the selection maybe isn’t so good but still have a good range of Brodies beers on.
Worth the effort to get there.
Massive pub which is open but there is a narrowing in the middle to create 2 distinct areas. Football on screens, Premiershite in the main area and Championshite in the back area. Loads of hand pulls but the active ones are spread out all over the place so you can miss one you want unless you want to look like a loon by striding up and down the huge bar. Good place.
Best beer money can buy in my opinion. Hops, hops & more hops go into Brodies beers, dry hopping too. If you don’t like hoppy beers, stay away from this place, it’s total paradise for me, I hope heaven is like this. Nice crowd in there, lively on match days, friendly too though.

Visited during the Rainbow IPA challenge. Ambiance is nice with lively crowd, wooden interiors and nice pieces of vintage stuff hanging on the walls. Service appear to be very slow and kinda bored, at least the night I visited. Good range of house beers and other British craft, at reasonable prices. A place I’d gladly visit again, but likely upon other events as it remains extremely painful to reach for me.
First visited on 22 Nov 2012 and then many times since. A typical east end boozer, with a mix of locals, football crowds and real ale drinkers. An impressive and irresistable beer range, with a large and varied selection of the always excellent Brodies beers, plus one or two guests. One place not to be missed when in London, especially for the hopheads amongst us!!
(Visited Nov 2012 and Apr 2013) Great pub in Leyton. Quite a bit from the London city centre, but it’s not too hard to get here via tube, Victoria line to Walthamstow, and a bus towards Leyton (get off at Baker’s Arms), or a 20 minute walk. There are also buses going to Hackney, making this an excellent start on a good pub crawl including Pembury Tavern, Cock Tavern and anything else in that area. Quite a large, well kept corner pub with a lounge at the back and the Brodies brewery behind the pub. Quiet a lovely place. Excellent beer selection, with up to 12 real ales, mainly from Brodies, but with some guests. Very good range of keg beers as well, with 12 or so Brodies beers. Friendly service and good pub food available. Laid back and friendly atmosphere, with the place mainly inhabited by locals and beer geeks. Great place and well worth leaving the comfort zone of the city centre for a trip to Leyton.
