What a fine pub this is. The exterior decoration - beautifully painted, and posing a few questions - is good preparation for what goes on inside. The decor is similarly smart and well-kept, with cosy seating and, among other things, a selection of pen-and-ink drawings of various vintage movie stars, from Charlie Chaplin to Sydney Greenstreet. There are several well-kept real ales on the hand pumps, a moderately wide selection of Scotch whiskies, and a reasonable selection of wines. The pub has various nooks and crannies and rooms, including at least one with a log fire, something that was much appreciated on our winter visit. The food menu, which mostly offers variants on traditional pub meals, not to mention old-fashioned English desserts, represents good value for money. All in all, this is a justly popular pub, seemingly with people of all ages, and one that we are pleased to recommend most heartily.

Noel is a dirty old pervert that assaults the barmaids. Noel uses prostitutes & ladyboys in Thailand. Barristers, solicitors & local CPS drink in this pub so a lot of things are covered up. Noel is a Freemason & appears to be untouchable but one day it will all come on top, or someone will give Noel a good beating. He also is very friendly with a weirdo called Paul Hebden who is a child abuser. He lives opposite at 90, Nightingale Lane. Hes 5ft 6ins, about 20 stones, wears specs & looks scruffy & grubby! Keep all kids away from him & Noel, if they get attacked it will be hushed up! Very dangerous & despicable people! Their vile nature matches their appearance!

Terrible attitude from Noel - a landlord. Drunk, old and crrepy guy with teenage Thai wife and four kids. Keeps touching female staff in front of my children

IMO the best Pub in Wanstead -

Very clean and well run - staff efficient and always decent beer - Can feel a bit blokey but still freindly and no prob with children early on

I was eating in this pub with my children aged six & eight years one Saturday lunch time, when I noticed a long dark hair in my food. When I asked to speak with the landlord an elderly grey haired man came over & when I explained he became quite abusive. I felt extremely intimidated & my youngest daughter started crying. Although I paid the full price for our substandard food we left immediately as my main concern was getting my children to safety. We will never frequent the Nightingale ever again
