Bar staff were friendly and helpful but having to apologise far too often for things not available. Guess they made their money from the tour people that came in. Didn't seem to make anything of it's "dodgy" East End past or even "traditional pub" that...More

Great east end pub with loads of character and history from the notorious Kray twins. Friendly vibe with great staff. A large selection of beers and spirits and a huge beer garden. Easily located from the tube.

Called in today just after opening. Gents urinals were full of urine. Staff weren't interested in letting us watch football on the tv, it took 15min for them to get the tv working. Decided to leave and eat elsewhere. Will not be back. There are...More
