Exceptionally busy throughout this large pub. Not for the first time I am served a short pint and not for the first time it is in less than perfect condition Ė Iím beginning to think that it is more than a coincidence that this keeps happening.

The fact that it is mid-evening on a drizzly February Monday does not stop this large pub from being standing room-only busy. Expensive here.

Not as crowded as on my last visit, but still amazingly busy given that it is Monday evening.

London Fields - Harvest Ale 20145.00AcceptableThis beer is evidence, to my mind, that not all Green Hop beers really work out.

Iíve not been in here for a few years and seem to remember being the only customer on my previous visit. Tonight it is packed; amazingly busy for mid-evening on a Tuesday. And I discover that the pub is around five times bigger than I had realised, with a back room, a busy outside yard beyond, and dining rooms in the old stables across the yard.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Dark Star - Revelation5.70AcceptableNot in prime condition and a bit too warm to fully appreciate the flavours that I know this beer has.
Sharp's - Doom Bar4.00Not Tried
Hackney - American Pale Ale4.50Not TriedI did not spot this on sale until after I had ordered something else.
Truman's - Tail Feather3.50Not TriedRan out whilst I was queing to be served.

The pub is found in Spitalfields, Central London, E1 6BX.

The Water Poet in the heart of Spitalfields, is a thriving pub, and you can understand why. Clean and tidy inside, even though it has some heavy contrasts such as a very large step on weighing scales, and two pool tables. A very good selection of real ales was on sale. I would have liked to have had time to explore the many rooms, but it was not to be.

We have visited this pub 6 times, seen 13 different beers and tried 7 of them.
