Dating from 1826 but rebuilt in 1892, this is a rather commanding pub in this increasingly gentrified part of East London: the Tredegar Estate, where nearby modest houses in Rhondda Grove go for the best part of 4,000 monkeys, as the former Cockney locals would have said, though not so the Range Rover-driving incomers. You can tell on approach that this is going to be a gastro-style pub due to the pastel hues applied to the frontage which features picnic benches with awnings and patio heaters, but also hanging baskets of beautifully tended flowers.
Inside, and the gastro colour scheme continues with walls painted either smoky blue or pale grey with a white Anaglypta ceiling with coved cornice. The bar back comprises a little bare brick with some white glazed rectangular tiles and small modern two-tier shelf with mirror. The floor is bare wood with fairly conventional furniture of mixed heritage. However, it's the woodwork in here that really makes the pub stand out. The field panelled bar surround is probably oak with carved pilasters, arches and pediments, topped with stained glass panels - it looks like a private chapel in a church. The ecclesiastical theme continues with similar carved surrounds to the doors with stained glass fanlights and to below the dado rail with picture windows which feature stained glass panelled clerestory windows. Décor is minimal, probably because of the substantial amount of glass limits hanging space. The far rear is more of a restaurant, the rear left-hand is a carpeted snug of sorts with framed prints of flowers; towards the front right there are framed sketches of dogs. There was a TV - off - and music played at a sensible level.
Staff were very friendly and efficient serving up GK IPA, rightly eschewed in favour of Landlord at £4.95 and on very good form; there were three other pumps, two unused and one with a reversed clip. Other drinks included Rosie Pig cider, Aspall's, Guinness and Eurofizz.
This is a very decent pub, but probably not for those who don't like food or young professional customers. Certainly worth a look, but I'd prefer to devote my time in E3 to the Lord Tredegar just down the road.

A large corner pub given a gastro makeover, which doesn't go too badly with the high ceilings, large windows and remaining original fittings. The large main room has a stripped floor and artily mismatched tables and chairs, with a posher restaurant area to the rear. Draught ales were GK IPA and Yardbird (a seasonal special), with Sambrook's Scrumdown and Bedlam Amagonsett as guests. I might have been unlucky but the Sambrook's was rather warm and not in the best of condition.

I probably picked the wrong day or time to visit this pub, Sunday afternoon, as the place was rammed solid with the Sunday roast brigade, every inch of floor space was taken up with occupied tables and chairs, which you had to weave in and out of to reach the bar, where for drinkers there was standing room only. The beer choice however was decent, four beers, one of which I didn't note for some reason and now escapes me, the others being Truman's Runner, Hackney Pale and Signature Brew Session . I can't say given the masses crammed into the pub, it was a great experience, but can imagine it being better at another time.
