Mid-evening – mainly just to say hello to a group of friends who are always here on Tuesday evenings.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Signature Brew - Wild Winter7.30ExcellentI’ve deciphered the small print – this strong Winter Ale is spiced with cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg, cloves and allspice.

Early evening visit. The football crowds have mostly moved on, but they haven’t left much beer.

Pleasant and comfortable in the mid-evening.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Five Points - Railway Porter4.80ExcellentBlack, roasty and creamy, but not ‘derailed’.
Sambrook's - American Red Ale4.20ExcellentI enjoyed this very much. Quite light for the style, with some very tasty hops.
Reunion - Frost Fair4.50GoodA dark Winter Ale, this pint seemingly quite heavily spiced (cloves I think were the dominant taste).

Quite a few people moved on to here when the Orient Supporters Club bar closed in the late afternoon. The pub may well have been empty otherwise.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Five Points - Brick Field Brown5.40ExcellentI always enjoy this one.
Signature Brew - Nightliner5.70ExcellentA great, coffee-flavoured Porter that was well-worth a second pint.

A pleasant atmosphere in here tonight. Not too busy and some of the comfy chairs available.
BeerABVScoreNotes
East London (ELB) - Three Kings3.80GoodA nicely-balanced Golden Ale.
Hand Brew - Dap Session Pale3.80PoorA murky gold colour. Not to my liking. Either a poorly balanced beer, with watery hop flavours, or a rogue cask that had gone wrong. I failed to finish my pint.

Sunday evening is always a very pleasant session in here and I popped in on my way home from Essex for a couple of leisurely pints and a listen to the live music.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Arbor Ales - Shangri-la 4.20ExcellentA gorgeous, golden and fruity Session IPA.
Northern Whisper - Blighty3.80PoorThis was horrible and I left without finishing my pint. Very sweet and malty and tasting faintly of marzipan, which is not a good taste in a beer. I cannot believe that it was meant to taste like this.

Just time for a quick pint and sausage roll supper before football at Brisbane Road.

A lunchtime visit. The pub is steadily filling ahead of football at Brisbane Road.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Adnams - Nut Brown4.00AcceptableI’m pleased to catch up with this beer, although this pint is not a prime one being a little bit close to the end of the barrel.

Mid-evening and watching a bit of the athletics from down the road on the big screen here.

The pub is found in Leyton, Greater London, E10 5OJ.

Initially this pub existed as a short-term ‘Pop-Up’ pub, open for the duration of the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Then closed for nearly a year, it re-opened on a permanent basis in August 2013. The pub is housed in part of the former Leyton Town Hall. It has several different rooms in which to drink, and the toilets are housed deep in the dungeons. The interior of the pub is now very much more homely and comfortable than it appears in my early photo on this site from its pop-up days.

We have visited this pub 77 times, seen 193 different beers and tried 106 of them.
