The Perseverance is a decent looking pub that is on the other side of the Grand Union canal from the broadway market.
Once inside there is a single iregular shaped room with the serving bar in the middle,there is comfy leather bench seating to the front and left sides,the right side is more like a bar area with a pool table and two dart boards,there was also a TV in this area showing the Leeds v Sheffield Wednesday game.
There are no pumps on the bar and sadly the polypins have gone,so i was left with keg Whistable Bay Pale Ale to drink,this drink was cold but better than i thought it would be.
The pub was fairly busy with locals of all ages.
When the old school landlord clocked me from behind the bar he knodded to me,you dont see that happen much these days.
Despite the lack of any real ales, i quite liked this pub.

This is one of those pubs where some Pubs Galore contributors wouldn't enter, as there are no handpumps on the counter. However - when I visited anyway - that would have been a mistake as there were three polypins tucked in between the shiny fonts, all from the East London Brewery. Of course there was no way of telling what was in them from the customer's side of the bar counter, but the helpful barmaid told me that one was a wheat beer, one was an IPA, and the third was a bitter called Cowcatcher (£2 a half). The Cowcathcher was a hoppy bitter - more like an IPA I would say - but a decent drop anyway. When I was in on Wednesday afternoon there ware little chalkboards on the tables advertising the burgers on offer at £5 a pop.

This is a pretty basic pub, with no gastro pretentions, I'm glad to say. There are black plastic upholstered banquettes around the sides, with some standard tables and chairs. The area to the right of the servery has a dartboard, pool table, and a small stage. There are TVs of course, and rugby related flags and bunting were all over the place.

I enjoyed my short visit here. I don't know whether the real ale polypins is a permanent feature, or whether it's a novel way of the pub dipping its toe into the real ale waters to judge whether there's a market for it. If the latter, I hope it works for them.
