About the Pub

1848 grade II listed pub. The striking exterior, with its elaborate decoration obscured by extensive foliage, forms an immediate impression upon approaching this pub. Inside is a fascinating collection of bric-a-brac, ranging from copper kettles to musical instruments and even a diving helmet. There are also brewery mirrors, a large collection of portraits and pictures, including a good watercolour landscape, and two notable clocks. Leased by East London "brewers" Brodie's, who used to brew their beer in the capital but are currently (as of Feb 2019) having their beers brewed elsewhere at Rhymney brewery in Blaenavon, Torfaen, Wales. . When busy (which is often) drinkers can spill out onto the pavement in front of the pub.
