A large theatre pub around 5 minutes walk north of Walthamstow Central station. Lots of pub games and a large range of beer – listed under E17 as part of Good Beer Guide 2010. I popped in on a Sunday afternoon – there was a fair crowd in providing atmosphere (along with a fairly good range of music on the jukebox).
The beer seemed fresh but it was far too cold! – Ale should be at cellar temperature (c. 12ºC) not as cold as continental lager. Not only are the flavours lost but it develops a ‘chill haze’ – I don’t know why, but I would imagine it’s to do with the kind yeast used and the fact it’s the opposite yeast to Lager.
The local CAMRA branch do meet in here quite often though – so maybe I was just unlucky? Otherwise a nice pub and not too much of a trek away from transport links.
