|I moved to the area over 3 years ago and decided after a few months to wander in to the Eleanor Arms.|
It was a bit nerve racking to start but I was pleasantly surprised when the all locals made me feel welcome straight away and, I'd like to think now that I'm a local, I'd do the same.
The El has such a great vibe and with Frankie's extensive knowledge of music, his "Minestrone of Sound" gig on Saturday nights, really gets everyone singing and now with The Old Ford Jazz Club happening every Sunday, there's never a dull moment.
While I'm not a beer drinker, the regulars love the ales they have on, with Kents Best being a popular choice. They also have a regular selection of guest ales, which always hit the spot. If you prefer wine, they have a great list and all well priced. The house red is a smooth Merlot & the white a really great Sav Blanc.
The hidden beer garden is a gem in summer & is just a hive of banter and laughter and with nice cold cider on tap, makes for a great sunny Sunday afternoon hang out with your mates. Winter brings out the collection of games including my favourite, Shut The Box that is very addictive.
If you just want to chill out & read a book or have a fun night out, The El is your place. The hospitality is one in a million and I'm proud to call this pub my local. Do yourself a favour and head on down to The El.

|The Eleanor has just added to it's range of traditional games.Bar Skittles|
Also known as Indoor Skittles or Bar Skittles, this is one of the most popular indoor pub games. Just like full alley skittles, each player has three attempts to knock down the skittles but in this space-saving version, the ball is swung around a pole toppling the skittles upon its return. A game of great skill for serious pub competition or just good old fashioned fun.

|I was a little disappointed by the Eleanor Arms. I've always seen it rated quite highly on here and it regularly has advertisements in the London Drinker. Make no mistakes, this is a nice little pub. But it didn't quite live up to its reputation. Inside is basically 2 rooms with a narrower area to the side of the bar separating the 2 areas. Most people were crowded into the rear area during our visit, where the Wimbledon final was being shown. Beers on were Shepherd Neame Kents Best & Canterbury Jack, plus Batemans Summer Swallow. Thatchers Heritage was the cider.|

|Excellent community pub, a real asset. Very welcoming to a stranger like me, good atmosphere and well decorated. Plenty of seating areas and garden. 3 Shepherd Neame beers and real cider. My Spitfire was in very good nick; nice to see it being properly pulled through (I was first in on a miserably damp lunchtime)|
