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.

The Dog and truck is a proper old school pub that is up a back street but close to the city.
Once inside there is a small oblong shaped room which runs the width of the pub,the floor is bare boarded,the seating is comfy bench type and chairs.
There is a pool table to the right and a darts board to the left.
The pub does cheap food for this area of London and is served from a very small open kitchen which is at the right side of the bar,i liked the look of all dishes being served and most around the £5 or £6 mark.
There were three real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Harveys bitter which went down well,the other beers were Black Sheep bitter and GK IPA.
There is a small conservatory to the rear right which has normal table and chairs and a small outside seating area to the front right.
Decent background music was playing.
I really liked this pub,and will no doubt visit again if with my wife for a meal.

How strange to find a fairly quiet backstreet boozer just a stone’s throw from the hustle and bustle of the busy pubs around Aldgate. It’s very simple inside, from the standard banquettes with normal tables and chairs, to the light pine cladding on the front of the bar counter. Above the counter are half a dozen framed collections of banknotes of the world, which is a bit different, and there’s also a dartboard and pool table here. Unfortunately there’s also games and fruit machines here flashing away at one end of the room, but which I guess are a necessary entertainment in pubs like this that don’t seem to be trying to attract the high end of the drinks and food market. There are also TVs all over the place of course, all muted when I was and tuned to Sky Sports, plus some “pub games” piled up in one of the corners. There’s a smallish garden at the side of the pub.

On the ale front they had on GKIPA and Harvey’s Best (£1.80 a half), with a reversed Ruddles County clip on a third handpump. The Harvey’s was in good nick. I did see a menu on a chalkboard behind the servery – sarnies are £3.95 a pop, and the “specials”, such as Chilli & Rice, are around £6.25. Top of the list is three sausages, chips and beans for £4.95. No gastro stuff here – this is pub grub at pub grub prices.
This is just the sort of of place to escape to for a quiet and decent pint.
