|Massive pub, nice location and great on a summer's day. Slightly lacking in character and not cheap.|

|My first visit was a happy one, maybe because West Ham had just beaten Millwall 2-1 and I wanted a drink! This is a Youngs pub with two ales 'on tap' and plenty of others in the fridge. |

|Not a bad pub but the new landlord (not sure how new he is) is a massive misery-guts. Rest of the staff are very friendly though.|

|I'm still undecided about this pub, Sometimes it's good, sometimes bad.|
The food is hit and miss aswell, I had an INCREDIBLE bangers and mash in there and one of the most average sunday lunches at 9 quid! The staff arn't local; I think that takes a bit of the charecter away from the pub. Also there seems to be a fair few yuppies in there, got nothing against them but where a pub was laught's and jokes, they make it feel more like a library, I've even see one of them trying to pay for a bag of penuts on credit card!

|Pleasant, large Youngs pub situated in a Georgian side street off the Bow Road at the Mile End end.|
It's a comfortable carpeted affair, with an L shaped bar serving three distinct areas - a public bar style area up some steps with a fine collection of darts trophies, a main central bar area and a food orientated area at the far end. There's a pleasant canopied seating area outside at the front.
By Youngs standards, it's relatively unspoilt and traditional - "An Oasis in a Changing World" - as it advertises itself. On my recent early evening visit, there was a good customer mix of all age groups. It's a bit offputting when you find 3 bar stools nailed to the floor, but this struck me as a friendly welcoming pub.
It's a Youngs pub which, when I visited, was serving Hook Norton Hooky as a guest. The Youngs Special - £ 3.05p - was in good form. The pub has had listings in recent CAMRA Good Beer Guides, but it seems to have missed out in 2010.
I'd be happy to call in again if the opportunity arises
