Whoever that Stupot is he must be a right arsehole! Wanstead is not the East End, its the dregs of East London where a lot of the people are up their arses yet they are invariably fat, scruffy & ugly & very nasty, their appearance matches their nature!! The East End starts from the Bow side of the Bow flyover & finishes at Shadwell!! As for Noel he is a dirty old pervert who touches up the barmaids & has sex with prostitutes & Ladyboys in Thailand. He also beats up his young wife & leaves her short of money, he is a wrongun that us proper men don't like, only the mugs suck up to him, the fairy boys of Wanstead! I used to take out some tart from Poland who was a barmaid there, her name was Ana, she told me everything about him!!

Monika works the bar at this salt-of-the-earth pub, dispensing pints (Woodforde’s Wherry, Black Sheep, Doom Bar) to first-name-terms regulars and occasionally bringing a pint to old George at his corner table as his legs only take him as far as the pub door itself. Her counter serves both the main bar and saloon bar behind it, where ruddy-faced men of brotherhood age, having forsaken manly pint-horsing for the security of married life, sit in silence with their wives, not quite out of earshot of the swearing on the other side.
Both bar areas are social-club comfortable – green upholstered furniture, red carpet – and reflect the sporting interests of the landlord (framed West Ham shirt, signed QPR one, collection of tickets to sundry matches).
The food’s a grab-bag of Brit dishes and more exotic imports (Thai green curry, say); there’s Irish music once a week.

Ignore the negative comments Noel is a proper landlord and his staff are all friendly and efficient. Best pub in Wanstead? Best pub in the East End, for my money!
It's a shame that the author of this review forgot to mention that: the owner's wife made me charge poor family extra money without them knowing. They came in for funeral. Also we've used to put some money on another girl's payslip, so wife can get some cash - probably because Noel's spent everything on his sex trip in Thailand. Well done - "Time Out London" - keep concentrating on beer and peanuts - never mind old guy and teenage Thais.
Nice food shame about the unfriendly bar staff who give you a What do YOU want attitude when ordering a drink, waiting nearly one hour for food yesterday - won't be in a rush back, plenty more quality food restaurants and bars in Wanstead
