This pub has been transformed since my last visit and is now airy and modern in appearance when once it was gloomy and smoke-filled. For a Monday evening, it is doing a good trade. Shame there was not a wider cask beer selection tonight.

The pub is found in Bow, Greater London, E3 5TH.

A large, street-corner pub that was present on Grove Road as the Victoria Tavern by the early 1860s. At one time the pub was known for its flamboyant late-Victorian design, but it was rebuilt in plainer style in the 1930s. Traditionally a Charrington’s house, it was acquired by Charles Wells Brewery in 1991 and is probably best remembered for the period in the 2000s when it was owned by well-known ex-boxer Charlie Magri. The ground floor has a large and comfortable bar and a coffee shop tucked into one corner. There is a cellar cocktail bar and a backyard with alcove tables. Six handpumps on the bar counter.

We have visited this pub once, seen 1 beer and tried it.
