Tris C left this review about The Perseverance

Dating from the mid-19th century, this pub was presumably rebuilt in the 1930s, judging by the green glazed tiles to the base, exposed following the removal of the grey paint, doubtless applied to try and attract the hipster mob from 98.4 ft away in Broadway Market. There’s an old Watney Combe Reid roundel over the empty sign bracket, but no effort has been made to replace it.
There are tables outside and a beer garden to the rear. Large picture windows allow in the light, not that it’s needed, with too much illumination coming from many exposed filament bulbs hanging from long flexes, so I had really no problem in determining that there are no original features. The floor is modern boarded, seating is exclusively chocolate brown buckskin banquettes with matching high-backed chairs and standard tables. The walls and ceiling are white, dominated by a large industrial aircon unit, along with some exposed trunking. There’s an electronic darts scoring computer, but just a ragged hole where once there was a dartboard. There’s a veritable arcade of electronic games machines. Five TVs were showing the footbal; music played at a decent level. There’s little décor apart from a few token framed prints and a large white pedal bin by the front door. The central bar appears to have planks fixed to the front, along with a large sign directing male customers to the lavs. Customers seemed to be a more traditional bunch of locals and largely blokey.
The closest thing to real ale served here is Beavertown’s Gamma Ray and my choice of Neck Oil, served by a friendly barmaid. Otherwise, there’s a vast array of illuminated stalagmite-like chrome founts, dispensing a cornucopia of fizz, Guinness, Aspall’s, ready-mixed Smirnoff cocktails…Indeed so great is the array, that I couldn’t make eye contact with the barmaid, a disembodied hand emerging from this forest, clasping a card reader, a faceless voice asking me for ‘Six pounds please.’
A bit scruffy, this really isn’t a great place, though it has its devotees. It’s just inside Tower Hamlets on the border with Hackney. Cross it, you’re in Broadway Market and by golly, don’t you know it.

Rated 3.5.

Large room with bar in the middle. Muted music and TVs. No real ale - just keg rubbish.

Busy spacious single room pub, no real ale, sport on the TV. Not really my kind of place.
