Home of Brodies Brewery. The pub feels as if it hasn’t 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, it’s worth the detour. Oh, and has anyone mentioned the £1.99 pints!!
visited the place in a sunday afternoon, the only day with no food, the interior is classic pub with large screens for sports’ events (mainly rugby) , 16 taps on in the week end all from the brodie’s brewery ,just upstairs, all in good condition and very cheap .. i hope cam.ra will note this place and put it in the good beer guide...
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.
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.

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.
Nice local pub off the beaten path. Wide selection of Brodies beer on cask and at very reasonable prices. When we visited with the Ratebeer Summer Gathering, several beers were off, one or two completely undrinkable. At least they were changed quickly and without protest, but that shouldn’t happen - especially not when you’re expecting a bus full of critical beer lovers.
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.
Broadies tap. A little far away from everything. Amazingly enough - 15 Broadies beer on tap. Another 5 in bottle. Half of the beers were in ciritical condition. I guess they are biting over a little more of what they can chew. Very cheap and the service was friendly.
Nice pub, excellent selection of Brodies beers. Excellent value for money at £1.99 a pint. Have only been here on Saturdays before football and it has quite a mix of people. Basically a not unwelcoming if a little strange locals pub with a unusually wide range of decent ales. Well worth a visit.
A good 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.
