Two ales on in here - Timothy Taylor Landlord, and Yarn Vale Moorhouse's. The Moorhouse's was a wallet busting £4.60 a pint, which seems to me to be a bit over the top for a Homerton backstreet pub. I didn't see any sign of food late afternoon on Friday, but I did qualify for a loyalty card - a Moostercard, presumably in recognition of the massive moose head on the wall above the fireplace on the right. Fair enough I suppose, but I would rather pay a fair price in the first place.

For some reason I quite liked this pub. There was lots of interesting stuff about the place, such as the aforementioned moose's head, pump clips displayed, framed pub awards, shelves bearing bric-abrac, and even an old space invaders machine. Apart from a sofa on the left, and a token tall table with tall stools, furnishings were all normal tables and chairs.

As much as I felt comfortable in here savouring my, admittedly decent, pint of Moorhouse's, I have a deep seated reluctance to return to a pub charging £4.60 for a pint, even if it is a guest ale.

The Kenton is a corner pub that i had problems in finding its location.
Sadly the pub was covered in scaffolding,but was still open for business.
Once inside there is a single oblongish shaped room with the bar on the left side,there were a few normal tables and chairs down the right side plus a pew seat,the room is bare boarded.
There were three real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Whitstable Bay Pale Ale which went down well,the other beers were Taylor Landlord and Old Speckled Hen.
There were a few other young customers in on my Saturday afternoon visit who were happy to help me out with my navigation problems.
Background music was playing.
I thought this was quite a nice pub with a laid back atmosphere.

It's been repainted in a subtle shade of grey,but this corner pub has also undergone an internal refurb which places it squarely at the trendy end of the market. You enter into an open plan area with many sofas and a few tables and chairs.The bar is to the left and besides the usual kegs it has two handpumps serving Doom Bar and TT Landlord at an eye watering £3.70.Beyond the bar to the right is a small alcove with a mixing desk which is used on DJ nights while the back section is dark,with high stools placed along the wall.Keep walking to a back room which gives some relief from the noisy muzak and has more seating ,a sofa and a coal affect gas fired woodburner.In this room is the exit to a small walled courtyard.It's a trendy establishment popular with students and a young hip crowd but this does bring the added benefit of very attractive barmaids,so not all hope is lost.
