The Britannia, Homerton
We've spent many an enjoyable summer weekend in the beer garden, and have generally found the staff friendly and efficient. Compared to previous incarnations, these guys are doing a very good job.
Also, I note that the review on this site is from last year - and bears little resemblance to how the pub is now!!!
Also the garden was totally overrun with fag ends as well as dirty straws, rubbish etc. This pub pitches itself for families but there was no way we could enjoy the garden with a child
Will not be going back
360 Victoria Park Road, Bow, London, E9 7BT
From Mile End Station, cross Mile End Road and go north up Grove Road until you come to the roundabout where the Victoria Park is, over the canal. Take the right hand park gate, walk through the park and you'll find the pub on the north east side. (Not the side where the lake and the fountain are.) It's a good 20 mins walk.
