About the Welcome to the Forest Bar

Summary of Beer Scores


The pub is found in Walthamstow, Greater London, E17 4QH.

A new, town centre bar opened in October 2019. The bar is a three way partnership between Waltham Forest Borough Council, the Rose & Crown Theatre Pub and East London Brewery (ELB). Opening as a pub on Friday to Sunday, with other usage on weekdays. Remarkably, this pub is downstairs below an existing first floor pub, next door to another pub in one direction and two doors from yet another pub in the other direction. This bar will showcase beers brewed within the Borough. There are two handpumps on the bar counter.

We have visited this pub once, seen 3 different beers and tried 2 of them.
