    Pub where the krays murdered a victim.

    Standard east London pub - ok beer selection - really chilled - pool table - pub cat :) - big garden out the back!
  • Matt B.
    Not such a good beer selection but hot dogs are wicked. Chips and onion rings also decent.

    Beer garden is pretty nice, and it has a pool table. But both ales and whiskeys have poor selection

    Decent pub, a good sized garden and as unpretentious as can be expected (but not enough so to see the next Ron and Reg propping up the bar...)

    Beer garden and open fires are the only thing good about this place now. Selection of beers is poor and the pop up burger restaurant is underwhelming.

    Spacious pub with decent pool table! Drink selection was fairly dismal, 50p card charge if under £10!

    Poor service, bad room layout, extremely slow food and horrible toilets (reminded me of Trainspotting's...). Not a great place.

    Beggar's belief is a bugger.. Too weak unfortunately.. Great drink for those not so into their beers from the Mediterranean region ;)

    Poor beer selection, nothing local, just standard mainstream lagers. We ordered two Heineken and a Peroni, all were served in Coors Light glasses. Bizarre garden, carp pond, bubbles and buddhas.

    Cueing at the till with the taps is for suckers, stay on the other side of the bar. Beggar's belief is one watery ale, avoid. Awesome beer garden

    Awesome beer garden in Mile End. Artificial waterfalls and asortic bubble aquarium here in garden will fourish yer eyes. However, ale is ok.

    Banger Bros "Famous HotDogs & Real Burgers" are now being served from our new kitchen. Order at the bar, collect at the kitchen (at the end of the bar). From 11am everyday.

    My friend's iphone was stolen in here. Watch out your belongings, because their cctv is neither watching, nor recording for you.

    £4 for a pint of speckle hen. Seems decent inside and the beer garden is nice. Toilets are like the ones out of the film "trainspotting"

    On the pricey side - but to be expected in the middle of The Ripper Trail

    The men's away from the pool table is an experience I can only imagine to be the opposite experience to walking into the tardis.

    Gentlemen of a hygienic persuasion might want to avoid the toilet. Great pool table, though.
