Average pub, pretty beer garden, 'meh' food, but absolutely horrible people running it. Notorious throughout Walthamstow. What is with all of those rude signs? How unwelcoming is that? The turnover of staff is really high which tells you a lot.
I presume people without kids would also find it off-putting to see a grown man screaming at a young mother that she is a bad mother for not making her 2 year old sit on a wet chair in the rain, and seeing said 2 year old become utterly distraught with fear? I know I didn't fancy buying another pint after that and have never been back. Although if that doesn't put you off you are probably in good company with that pair.
They should maybe go and run a private prison or something and let somebody nice turn that pub into something we locals could be proud of.
