A sizable backstreet corner pub, Its a single room with plenty of seating which were all full up with young family's complete with children and pushchairs, oh dear. It is very gastro but a half decent beer selection helped, Purity Mad Goose, ELB Night Watchman and Darkstar Hophead.
Its Ok for a beer here but I'm not likely to rush back too soon.

Only a five minute or so walk from the King William 1V and on route to Walthamstow village, so not to be missed. The pub was quiet on our Monday afternoon mini crawl, which was to be expected. This large corner pub was very inviting on approach and once through the doors, we headed to the facing bar, which had a dark blue painted front and a pine counter. I was pleased to see they had four handpumps in operation, so we went for the ELB Foundation Bitter and the New River Brewery London Tap. Both beers were in great shape and tasted superb, so all in all another bonus pub to Walthamstow.

Pleasing exterior but a typical gastro makeover internally.Open plan with a wooden floor there is a huge shelving until to the left with a vast array of board games.Most of the tables are large designed for dining and families were much in evidence on a Saturday lunchtime visit.The large plates glass windows give a lot of light inside.There is an upright piano with a sign encouraging anyone to tinkle the ivories if they fancy but a knees up is unlikely to be the outcome given the gentrification of the area.To the side there are a few low tables below slatted blind windows,and you can just drink anywhere around the interior .The muzak was decent ,some classics at decent volume and the food offering seemed sound with burgers from £10 and mains generally £12-£17.
At the bar there were three real ales Dark Star Hophead (decent),ELB Foundation Bitter and Hackney American Pale Ale,so good to see two locales.Friendly services always a bonus.Fine to pop into for a beer or while on a crawl but the presence of dining families and the foody atmosphere would put me off from spending a heavy session within.
