    The most average, plain pub I've ever been to. No character whatsoever

    The pint is cheap and the sound of pub is always good. I recommend stay here when you come to East London. I think it is one of the best options to drink around here.

    Stunning building. Real old historical boozer. Inside it's full of young trendy people. Look at the mirror art (for want of a better name) behind the bar.

    The beer will give you rabies and every time you see a band here you’re guaranteed to lose some of your hearing. That's why we you’ll see us DJing and putting on gigs in here. Awesome, awesome pub. Read more
