Pub/bar situated in a converted warehouse building between Custom House Station and the ExCeL Centre.
It's spread over a couple of floors; the top floor has large picture windows (though the view is not exciting) and a fairly hideous carpet. Sturdy chairs and tables; some banquettes photo.
Kake visited on a Thursday lunchtime around 1pm; no trouble finding a seat, though the place wasn't empty. Barman was friendly enough. No real ale. Strongbow was £3/pint. Background music was inoffensive if unmemorable, and not too loud. Overall impression was that it wasn't as bad as you might expect from a chain pub attached to a conference centre.
