Turner's Old Star, E1W 2QG

Locals' pub in Wapping.

An RGL posse visited on a Sunday afternoon in November as part of the East London Line pub crawl. The only real ale available was London Pride. There was a table of snack food put out (cheese, little biscuits, prawns, crabsticks, etc) for customers to nibble on, and we were invited to help ourselves; very hospitable! (Don't know if this happens every Sunday, or if it was a special occasion.)

They have a beer garden out the back (which the interweb says has a trampoline!), and there's a pool table too.

A blackboard seen outside in November 2007 advertised sausage and chips (£2.50), saveloy and chips (£2.50), wings and chips (£3.10), pie and chips (£2.60), cornish pasty and chips (£2.30), and jacket potato (£2.25, all extra fillings 50p). Don't know what times these are served though.

The name of this pub is a reference to the painter J M W Turner, who apparently set up his mistress as landlady here.
