The White Hart in E1

Occupying a prominent corner site on the busy Whitechapel Road, close to the overground station, this is a smartly presented pub with its own in-house micro brewery. The corner doors and porch have been converted into a snug of sorts, so you have to enter through the door on the front wall which takes you into a bare boarded room with the servery running down the right hand side. The bar is fairly unremarkable, with a high, arched mirror bar back and an open kitchen visible at the far end. Padded banquettes run along the front wall, from where some good people watching can be enjoyed, but the majority of the room was filled with standard tables and chairs and the odd low stool here and there. A row of support pillars run down the centre of the room, which breaks things up a little and the left side has been decorated with quite a sizable collection of potted plants, plus a large upended cask. Perhaps the most visually arresting item is the huge Truman, Hanbury and Buxton mirror on the back wall, although there are plenty of other pictures and items of breweriana dotted around. I spotted at least one TV screen - turned off on this visit in favour of a particularly drab soundtrack.
There were just the four handpulls in action on this visit, with two of their own 'One Mile End' brews available - Rye Mild and Rudolph Rocker - plus a guest of Fullers Wild River and a real cider. Two more pumps remained unused. The keg selection was much more extensive and offered lots more One Mile End brews which the friendly barmaid helpfully guided me through before I decided which beer to try. In the end, I ended up with the Rye Mild, which I thoroughly enjoyed and thought was in fine condition. Having read some of the comments below, I wonder if a reduced cask ale range has had a positive effect on quality or whether I just got lucky.
I was quite interested to see what this place had to offer since it became a brewpub and I left feeling suitably impressed. It might not be the most interesting pub in which to spend your time, but I was pleased with the beer and would be very keen to try some more of their brews. A good addition to the local scene.

A former Natwest bank,with a grand exterior and next door to the impressive Town Hall this is one of the few attractive areas of Central Croydon.It's a Fullers tied pub,so expect their very high pricing for all drinks.You enter the pub up a flight of stone steps,and into an open plan,high ceiling room with a staircase to the right leading to a section which was closed off on my trip for a private function.Notices also advertise that there is a theatre here,meaning I would guess small performances in this upstairs section.The bar is directly infront of the front door and the gents is around the back of the bar ,downstairs in what was probably the vault.There is a lot of wood panelling around,furniture is traditional looking with some chesterfield sofas thrown in for good luck.There are three flatscreens with Sky Sports,making this a popular spot to catch live footie so the atmosphere can be more bouyant than the surroundings might suggest.
The six handpumps were drawing London Pride,ESB(decent),Front Row,HSB and Spring Sprinter from Fullers with a single guest of Twickenham Page 24 Biere de Mars (OK condition). Two pints and a double whisky were eye wateringly expensive,but at least the grandeur of the place and an upbeat vibe was a bit of an offsetting factor.

I recently spotted an article listing the 16 Most Annoying Customer Types in pubs. I’ve never personally worked behind a bar, but I’ve talked to plenty of people who have, and I can see the truth in most of them. However, I freely admit to #3 – if it’s not ....
