I've been to this pub quite a few times since I live in the bethnal green area. This pub is quite the classic old pub you can expect. It's got a few tvs and the "usual's" that sit at the bar pretty consistently throughout the day and night.

This place is nice if you're just looking to have a nice cold brew on a day in London or if you just want to meet a pal for a drink or two before deciding... more

This pub is the first place I stumbled into upon arriving in Bethnal Green, instantly outside the underground station exit. The place is old and run down, just like almost everywhere in this little pocket of East London, but rather then struggle against this handicap the pub has perservered and shone through as a local boozer where everyone knows one anothers name... and an outsider isn't... more
