We arrived a few minutes after 5pm opening time and stayed for a number of pints. I was sitting with my back to the beer list so I have only listed the beer that I drank. A superb pub.

We arrived just after 12pm and already another customer here soon joined by 3 others. Visit was unplanned as we'd decided to catch the 195 or E8 short bus ride from Brentford station and am glad we did, my first visit and I was impressed, great relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

We originally arrived at about 12:30 to find the shutters down and Lucy outside with an emergency locksmith. It turned out that the locksmith could not help as the problem was that the electricity supply had tripped out inside the pub and needed resetting, the only problem being that she could not get inside to reset the supply. We ended up going for a beer elsewhere and returning about 90 minutes later to find the premises just about open and Lucy still doing the cleaning. She tried to give us our drinks free of charge for our inconvenience but we thought it only fair to pay for them and after some discussion a buy one get one free compromise was reached. A proper micropub with a great atmosphere, ticks all the boxes, Lucy was very pleased to have received a couple of Camra awards recently.

Early evening. Although only open a short time, this little pub seems already to be at the heart of the local community. I liked it a lot. I wish people would start opening these kind of places in East London.
