A Young's pub in East End London, nr. Mile End station. Situated in a back street, it's meant to be a friendly, local, old-style boozer, and so it is.
The inner space of the pub is pretty spacious, with lots of seatings and tables along each wall. A L-shaped bar is equipped with four handpumps on each leg, serving constantly three-four regular Young's beers plus one seasonal, while Young's two continental-style lagers and their AAA are all on tap too. The condition of beers is usually decent, but not so ideal for real ales in the summer~~
The interior is quite "mundane" at best, true to the classic setting of an East End local boozer (can't quite describe it, sorry~~). But it's the atmosphere which counts for a good pub innit? The clientele is basically local East Enders during weekdays, while local football match goers would stuff the place on the weekend, where they find themselves indulged with a huge TV screen hanging on the rear of the main part of the pub with many more TVs scattered around the many corners of the pub. Plus very good Sunday roast and other well-prepared pub food on the menu, the Sunday might be its busiest hours yet. Those who don't fancy sitting in the middle of the crowds and in need of more air would enjoy sitting in the frontyard of the pub at the outdoor seatings (equipped with a huge umbrella each table--absolutely a must in London!!).
Generally speaking, this pub is another good place to be for real ales and real local feeling in East End London.
