Real Ale Ray left this review about The Blind Beggar

I am glad in a way we ventured in here for a tick and for the tourist aspect, but I found this pub to be dark, drab and scruffy looking. A couple of well oiled characters slumped at the bar on our Monday afternoon visit didn't inspire us either. The beer choice hasn't altered in years and the choice still remains with a Pride, Doom Bar and the house beer Beggars Belief.

Basic boozer really and not moved with the times on beer selection.Pride,Doom and a rebadge .Quite busy and noisy on my visit.Drunken guy at the bar told me it used to be a hard pub.(found it hard drinking my half of Beggars Belief to be honest)and it was famous for the Craze brothers shooting a blind beggar and running away to Cornwall or something like that.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Blind Beggar

Notorious East End boozer with an unfortunate place in history, but now almost devoid of old-school character inside (although it retains a decent façade, and there is one display board explaining the infamous events). The 'L'-shaped bar is gloomy and austerely decorated, almost to the point of being oppressive. Also has an equally plain pool room at the back. However, the patio beer garden to one side was quite a pleasant spot on a sunny Spring day (with quite a watchable, if unreliably intermittent, water feature). Although not obvious at first, there are three handpumps on the side part of the counter, offering Doom Bar, Pride and a 'house' Beggars Belief (which seems quite apposite when you get charged £4.70 for it...).
