See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

A basic, street-corner pub of a type once common but now increasingly under threat. Very much a locals' pub with friendly bar staff and no other pretensions. It has quite an impressive exterior with some old beer advertising signs indicating its once Courage ownership. The pub is long and thin with most of it extending down the side street (Monsell Rd.), the decor is pleasant enough being carpeted throughout and ample seating with a dart board at the far end. There's a large screen TV although it did not seem to feature Sky Sports. No evidence of food, customers seemed to be bringing in their own without any problem.
