July 2022 - The Baring has reopened as a quite posh gastropub/restaurant with seating area at the bar but most tables set up for dining (though when visited some punters were just having a session). No real ale at the moment but they will have 2 Harbour brewery beers in future. Reopened under the management of Adam Symonds and chef Rob Tecwyn.

Oct 2020 - being refurbished and sign now says the Baring (old name coming back???). The Poet appears to be about to revert to its proper name, The Baring.

Local authority listed, imposing, cosy back street corner pub. Worth seeking out. The pub underwent a full refurbishment many years ago, including repairs to damage inflicted by the Luftwaffe! Close for the Regent's canal and former Gainsborough film studios. Nearest tube for some will be Angel.
