It's still painted bright orange, but once inside you find yourself in a traditional east end boozer.Red carpet and red wallpaper with a gold design, it's a bit blast from the past, basic table and chairs are placed around the walls and bar stools for those who prefer to sit at said bar where we find four hand pumps,three beers were on, London Pride , Truman's Fire starter and Dark Star Hophead. This is a very basic pub but worth stopping for a pint.

We see so few pubs painted a bright orange that I was a bit wary as I entered. But three ales being on helped somewhat. They were nothing terribly exciting, but the availability of Doom Bar, Timothy Taylor Landlord, and London Pride (£1.80 a half) was a very pleasant surprise. A cheapish pub grub menu was available on Wednesday afternoon, with, for example, beefburger and chips at £6.75.

This is clearly a locals’ pub – they don’t get many tourists down this far east. There is some nice wooden panelling on the walls up to the dado level, but just about everything else of its original Victorian interior has long gone. The room stretches back to the left hand side of the servery to an area with the classic combination of pool table and dartboard, and on to a tiny courtyard with a couple of tables. This outside area is no doubt used by smokers, as I can’t imagine anyone sitting out here just for the pleasure of doing so. But there are a few picnic benches out at the front by the main road. On the plus side the pub has not been infested with sofas and tall tables/tall stools, and there was a pile of London Drinkers on a shelf on the right.

This is still a basic East End boozer. It’s not a destination pub, but with three ales on it’s certainly worth dropping in for a pint if you’re passing.
