A quick, post-curry pint. Great to know there is now a decent pub option at the south end of Brick Lane.

I was pleased to see this pub has re-opened and popped in for a quick one. I always thought the pub offered potential and I hope this latest reincarnation realises that potential.

The pub is found in Aldgate, Central London, E1 6TD.

This street corner pub was present by 1821 and earlier called the Archers Tavern. Traditionally a Whitbread’s pub, it has rarely sold cask beers in recent history – a couple of experiments in the 1980s and 1990s being unsuccessful. January 2016 has seen a return to cask beer, with four handpumps on the bar. It is a small, single-bar pub, stripped back to basics, with a nice fireplace against one wall. Close to Aldgate East station and handy for Brick Lane.

We have visited this pub 3 times, seen 8 different beers and tried 3 of them.
