A large 19th century pub close to Snaresbrook station. Little, if anything is left of the original interior; bare bricks predominate though there's a spacious conservatory and a garden. There's a huge array of beer and cider taps as well as London Pride on pump.

The crowd here is extremely mixed; some look as though they've got lost on the way to Notting Hill. There are a few old lags, some Essex boys and scantily clad women who look like they've walked in from the set of TOWIE. There are also several security guards who mingle with the crowd which isn't something I like. Perhaps there's often trouble here?

Overall I liked the place though on a Saturday night it's very crowded and noisy; conversation is almost impossible. I would advise visiting on a week day.

A large trendified pub not far from the tube. The interior has a couple of nice touches such as the conservatory-style extension and chandeliers but any real remains of the old pub have long gone. Seems to be aimed at the mums and prams brigade during the day, with the boho yoof in the evening. To this end there is an emphasis on food and on the drinks side there are a number of high-end keg lagers to choose from plus a couple of safe ales (Doom Bar and Pride) and Westons cider (though a collection of old clips attached to a pillar seems to indicate that they get better ones occasionally). So I took a punt on the Meantime keg and it’s safe to say I won’t be getting that again anytime soon, though that’s not the pub’s fault. The Doom Bar sampled by another crawlee was OK but nothing special. It wasn’t a particularly cosy place to sink a pint and on a cold winter’s day as the lack of heating meant our coats stayed on. There’s a large garden to the rear which I guess would be good in the summer. I doubt I’ll be making a return though, there was little of any real note.

This place just must have seen better days, as I have to say that I don’t think it’s up to much now. I entered to the sound of a baby crying, the overpowering smell of fish, and the sight of young children wandering around. The London Pride didn’t taste too brilliant either, but it was drinkable. So, almost all of the senses assaulted in pretty short order.
This place has been sufficiently madeover to remove any original pub character. The conservatory area at the front that gets plenty of natural light is painted light shades, whereas the main room behind it that gets less natural light is all painted dark colours. There is a further room behind the main bar area, containing loads of normal tables and chairs, and being mainly utilised by diners during my lunchtime visit. Daily menus are available on the tables, offering main courses between £8.50 and £15.75. There was no sign of any traditional pub grub. I have to say that I didn’t find this a very comfortable pub in which to stop off for a beer, although maybe I was just unlucky and that it might be better at another time. I left as soon as I necked my pint, probably never to return.
