Another great place ... A typical example of a British pub , this place shows that the range of beer is obviously important but not all ... The Pride serves 4 regular ales with brewers gold my favourite but the atmosphere and the people in there make this place special .. open till very late on Friday and Saturday ..revisited on sunday 17th nov .. my opinion about this place is the same , there is only a good news to say, they have Always a truman’s beer on tap so brewers gold , ESB,doom bar , london pride and a ttruma’s beer
Brick Lane. Ripper area. (The 10 Bells is 250 meters away) It’s the (almost only) pub in the area. Ales are well kept, and there is always one champion beer -often two. Crouch Vale Brewer’s Gold is always on pump. Very comfortable. Lanny (short for Landlord) the rescue cat is usually imperturbably present. Quite the local. Staff was pleasant and chatty. Tables outside. NB: Some years ago HASSRALE highly recommended this pub for the availability of award winning ales.
Not a great selection, but excellent place to spend hour or two in a pub that can be called quite brittish.

We visited here Sat 20th October 2012 with Ang. Nice friendly little pub with a good crowd in tonight. The beer selection is small however it is a nice choice, we had Brewers Gold, in excellent nick however there was a touch of butteryness, not enough to not enjoy but enough to just about be noticed. Convienient for Brick Lane and also for Rough Trade East (if you like buying vinyl like me & Loz) Enjoyable proper pub, with good service, good beer, and a good crowd, whilst the likes of Craft, Cask & KItchen, Euston Tap, Rake, Brewdog etc will always appeal to the beer geek in us, I would always seek out a pub like this for a great atmosphere and just because this sort of place is our history. Great pub!
Cozy little pub not far from the business district. Traditional British character with a fireplace and some old photos (plus a cat). The cask ale I tried was in a very good condition. The beer selection is not shockingly diverse, but you they still have 5 cask ales and 6 more taps. Nice place for sure.
Just off Brick Lane and close to that bloody great, expensive covered market, this is a little gem to get away from the tourist crowds. It was full of locals with shopping everywhere on the Saturday afternoon I arranged to meet one of my brothers there, so still not away from the crowds, just a different crowd, thats all!
Good quality beer, standing room only, mind the shopping bags, smokey, locals served first, but friendly enough, I suppose.
This is what a non-British tourist would think is a typical London boozer, and they would not be to far wrong.
A superlative backstreet boozer just off of Brick Lane. Some great looking riff raff hanging out in front of the place. Inside is dimly lit with lots of bottles (full) lining the upper levels of the walls. There’s a TV, a piano, a very small bar, tables, chairs. Nothing too outrageous on tap, but the two I had were in good condition. Black and white photos adorn the walls, and there’s also plenty of brewery ephemera scattered about. Just super classic, this place. Worth stumbling in here sometime.
Yup, cozy, friendly and attracting a younger, slightly alternative crowd. Beer was great, but the best thing.... this place stays open past 11pm. We were served beer until midnight. Not sure how that happend, but it just meant more Brewer’s Gold to end the night. Great place.
