I arrive home after a long flight from South America to find the house cold and the cupboard bare. To the Technical then to eat whilst the place warms up.

All five rooms here have diners at 6pm on a Sunday, not just the dining room. No live music today though, which is disappointing as it was part of the reason I came in.
Redemption - Rock the Kazbek4.00ExcellentA very fine pint in perfect condition.
Redemption - Pale Ale3.80GoodA decent enough Pale.
Redemption - Urban Dusk4.60Not Tried

Very busy ahead of football at Brisbane Road. There is a dubious-looking group of visiting supporters in. A couple of police constables are keeping a wary eye at the door, and the manager is kept busy relieving under-age drinkers of pints acquired for them by older members of the group.
Five Points - Green Hop Goldings3.70GoodGood, that completes the Five Points Green Hop set for me for this year.

A brief mid-evening visit. With both Leyton Orient and West Ham having played home matches in the area today it is a wonder they have any beer left.

A late-afternoon visit, spoilt by a shouting match at the bar between two customers, one of whom subsequently started touting ‘magic tricks’ around the tables.
East London (ELB) - Wolf4.10ExcellentGolden, fresh and crisp. A very nice beer.

The new football season began today for my team and I have endured a long round trip to Salford by coach. Necessary beer stop on return to Leyton. Pub quiet on Saturday evening.
Adnams - Mosaic Pale Ale4.10ExcellentA reliably excellent pint.
Hackney - Push Eject6.50ExcellentA very fine, strong IPA.

Mid-evening visit with the last of this-afternoon’s football crowds beginning to disperse.
East London (ELB) - Mandarina Session Pale4.10ExcellentOn top form. Sharp.

A late nightcap. It has been busy in here and they are down to just two cask beers.
Purity - Longhorn IPA5.00GoodAn amber-coloured Rye beer.
Adnams - Fat Sprat3.80Not Tried

Really just a late-evening comfort break whilst changing buses.
Sharp's - Manu Bay4.40ExcellentAn unsubtle (I like unsubtle sometimes), golden beer with an interesting hop profile. Good to see Sharp’s still have it within them to brew beyond the bland parameters of mass market stuff.

Summary of Beer Scores



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 93 times, seen 229 different beers and tried 123 of them.
