Typical wetherspoons with fairly downmarket clientele. All of the usual pros and cons of the chain, cheap but it can take forever to get served , no proper garden just a roped off area at the front. Straight up and down urban wetherspoons with plenty of local colourful characters.

Very nice pub, clean, cheap price and good beer but the manageress is useless. Will do anything to avoid serving by wandering around, chatting etc. Absolutely useless. Should be sacked.

Went out with locals and enjoyed a very pleasant evening. More important this Wether's did have everything on the menu available and what we ate : hamburgers, f&c and pasta were very good.

Been here several times before going to football. Food always good and the beer is brilliant at sensible prices. Very good service as well. Recommended by me and my son.

Everything was expected at this Wetherspoons. Great choice on the menu and a good selection of beers. Polite and helpful staff. Food was served hot and as well as being delicious was very good value for money. If I change trains at Barking again, I will be back.

They have to be the worst bar staff I have ever encountered. On Sunday when the place got busy because of a funeral party one of these bright sparks set off the fire alarm in case they would have to do some work. No fire brigade or other emergency service turned up. No fire was evident. What a shower this... More
