Another pub I remember from years ago, and hasn't changed much. Shep Neame beers and good service. Good pub.

A first in here the other night and what a treat: the Shepherd Neame fascia boards have been removed to reveal three levels of lovely green and gold glazed Truman's tiles. Otherwise, this pub is in a rather ho-hum Whitechapel/Aldgate backwater just to the north-east of the Tower of London that warrants little in the way of exploration, being home to offices that can't really afford the rents charged in the City.
I didn't have high expectations for this place but was very pleasantly surprised indeed. The front bar is very traditional with a fine bar, pot shelf, bar back and boarded floor with friendly barmen. It was let down slightly by a few office workers indulging in some rather industrial language.
The rear bar is carpeted and has traditional/conventional furniture. The half panelled walls are painted burgundy and are decorated with historic prints and the like. There's a fireplace which hopefully is used, surrounded by horse brasses which perhaps could go on the fire once lit.
Beyond, it's just a few steps down to an attractive beer garden. The rear bar was home to groups of cheery and mixed people: some studenty types, South East Asian tourists to name just some. Music played over the jukebox and it was perhaps a little loud but not intrusively so; TVs were refreshingly absent.
Ales: Master Brew, Spitfire and Samuel Adams at a painful £4.60 a pint but very nice indeed.
This is a very decent pub and one to which we will certainly return if in the area. Two points deducted due to the high prices (this is the East End for God's sake) and customers' language.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Princess Of Prussia

Quite an attractive Shepherd Neame pub, but looking somewhat squashed between the taller adjacent buildings. Features a narrow rectangular bar, with further seating in another room beyond. Very traditional furniture and decor, and partly wood panelled. Four handpumps on the counter, offering Master Brew, Spitfire, Whitstable Bay and Late Red (£4.10).
