Originally The Royal Oak, this was renamed The Leconfield in 2013, reasons unknown. This is an attractive rebuild dating from 1926 with some very fine Courage tiling to the north side and trademark cockerel straddling the sign bracket.
Inside, this isn't quite as upmarket as The Cellars, Lady Mildmay or Alma but is positively Downton Abbey compared to The Weavers down the road. Inside it's all quite a distressed mix with a bare boarded floor (parquet to the rear), chunky rustic or old school tables, hosting candles in bottles and tubular steel chairs, the kind of things that were commonplace until the arrival of Robin Day's polypropylene chair in the '60s. There are some bare brick walls and some exposed RSJs. Lighting in part comes from some spun brass chandeliers which look a bit out of place. There's a shelving unit holding some bricks and to the rear, table football (I didn't see a pool table). The gent's loo is just two cubicles and no urinal which could prove problematic at peak times. There's at least one TV which thankfully was off.
Customers were young, less hip than some in neighbouring pubs and were few in number. Some were eating but the food looked fairly basic and not high end. Live music was playing but after a while it was abandoned in favour of piped which was quite loud.
The barman was very friendly and presided over an unused pump, thereafter one each dispensing Timothy Taylor's Landlord, Hammerton's N1 and East London Brewery's Pale Ale at £4.20 a pint which was fine though stiffly priced for the area.
This pub seems unsure of its identity. It's not really a trendy pub, it's not a gastropub and it's not really a live music venue either. Nevertheless it's worth a visit if passing.

A busy open plan pub, a mix of gastro and boozer. Live football was on no doubt adding to the crowd along with those partaking of a late Sunday Lunch, there is an open kitchen to one end of the large bar area. Beers on were T.T Landlord,Hogs Back TEA, New River London Tap which was good along with a couple of Ciders.
It was OK here.

Update 22/08/2013

The opening as the Leconfield is Saturday week (31/08/2013. The opening hours are going to be 15:00 weekdays, 11:00 Saturdays and 12:00 Sundays.




New Info 01/07/2013

Apparently this place is going to open as The Leconfield (a real ale pub) some time in August. I'm guessing it's currently closed for renovation, let's hope it's not the same builder that Antic use.

It sounds like it's going to be yet another one that opens in the late afternoon on weekdays.
