Komakino . left this review about Dog & Truck

An isolated, one-roomed backstreet boozer which has lost some its charm in clinging on into the 21st century. Well-described by Tris below, this is a long, narrow room served by an entrance-facing, long, narrow bar; each end of the room is bookended by large TVs showing sport silently. The pub's website espouses its craft beer associations and there are three banks of founts, with mainly national lagers, ciders and a couple of crafty concessions. A pint of Big Hug Do Not Disturb NEIPA was decent enough as this much-maligned beer style (and dispense) goes, but £6.65 for the privilege lessens the enjoyment somewhat. Two handpumps spotted, partially-obscured by a mini-chalkboard offering 'Cazcabel: 6 for £18', albeit only Doom Bar available. A cursory E1 tick if anything

Tris C left this review about Dog & Truck

This place dates from the mid-19th century, but was rebuilt in 1935 and is very much a backstreet venue, not to be found unless looking for it.
I suspect that the interior has been massively trendified since the first two reviews. For one thing, the Watney Combe Reid roundel which once straddled the sign bracket has now been mounted to a wall in the beer garden, which also has a conservatory. Otherwise, there’s much bare brick and really nothing of the original interior remaining. Paint where applied is grey and cream, with a modern floor, furniture is mixed and conventional, there are modern light fixtures and the football was being shown on multiple TVs with the sound off, so as not to interfere with the staggeringly simplistic quiz. Customers were mixed, but I suspect mainly younger incomers. A noted irritant was that despite the pub being not that busy, there were loads of tables cluttered with dirty plates and empty glasses piled up.
Ale amounted to Doom and Ghost Ship (off), so it was a half of Peroni at £2.90, served by a friendly barmaid.
This place is ok I suppose, but there’s better to be had in the area, better ale would get the score of this place up.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Dog & Truck

Refurbished pub in an area of former warehouses between the edge of the City and the main Tower Hamlets housing estates. The rectangular bar is quite an attractive mix of traditional and modern elements, and has a couple of screens to break things up a bit. Also has further seating in a conservatory to one side (with a compact patio beyond) and a partly covered yard on the other. Pieminister menu. Clientele mostly young professionals, by the look and sound of things. Truman's Runner and the seasonal Greene King Grubber golden ale (£4.35) from two of four handpumps.
