Now closed; was a Young's pub in Barking. It has now been converted to housing photo, though the caryatids remain photo.

The information below is retained for people who want to know what it used to be like.

Young's pub in Barking, in the Good Beer Guide.

Kake visited on a Thursday afternoon; it was pretty empty apart from a couple of locals. Locals and barmaid alike seemed confused by my presence — I suppose I was pretty weird in context, being a woman on her own drinking in the public bar of an out-of-town pub in the afternoon. Three real ales: Young's Bitter (I think), Young's Special, and Wells Bombardier. The Special was £2.51/pint, and there was nothing wrong with it.

The public bar has a pool table, and a flatscreen TV, which was showing football but not loudly. I didn't go in the saloon bar, but the interweb says it has a piano.

Not sure it's worth a journey, but if you're in the area it's probably worth checking out. Certainly can't argue with the prices.

According to the 2007 Good Beer Guide, food is served lunchtimes except Saturdays.
