    Default East End Crawl 19/2/2014

    I will be doing a large crawl in the East End of London on the 19th February.

    This crawl will start in Limehouse doing 8 pubs there 6 without reviews,then bus it up burdett road to Mile End,probably do around 6 pubs in this area heading north to roman road,then up to old ford road,i will then walk down grove road back to Mile End if time permits i will go along mile end road to Stepney Green probably end up in the Spoons there.

    If all pubs are done it should net me 12 London pubs without a review.

    This is the rough list of pubs i will do in order.

    Railway Tavern, commercial road
    White Horse, white horse lane
    Old Ship, barnes street
    Queens Head, flamborough road
    Prince Regent, salmon lane
    The Crown, commercial road
    The Grapes, narrow street
    Star of the East, commercial road
    Coburn Arms, coburn road
    Morgan Arms, morgan street
    Lord Tredegar, lichfield street
    Lord Cardigan, anglo road
    Young Prince, roman road
    The Albert, st stephens road
    Elenor Arms, old ford road
    Lord Morpeth, old ford road
    The Crown, grove road
    Palm Tree, not sure where this pub is at mo
    The Victoria, grove road
    Wentworth Arms, eric street

    If i have time

    Bancroft Arms, mile end road
    Half Moon, mile end road
    Horn of Plenty, globe road

    I hope to be in a pub in Limehouse before 11.30am

    If any reguler members would like to join me on this crawl,i would be happy to meet up for a blast round the East End.

    Cheers Alan

    I'm not sure what's happening at the Palm Tree. Last year I heard it had closed and then I heard it had opened again. I can only assume that the people who ran it for many years have quit or retired.

    My last experience here a year ago or so was not good, I did a thread on it somewhere but cant find it right now. Nothing to do with being out on the p**s in London all day of course.

    It seems to be beyond the reach of the Google maps cameras. The map point appears to be in the middle of someone's garden!

    Looks like an interesting crawl, and if I can get Wednesday off next week I'll see if I can join you. Not sure I could manage the whole 23 pub route, mind you.

    It would be great if you could join me Will,i only intend in doing 21 pubs,but i like to have a few spare if i find some closed pubs.

    I should be arriving at Victoria Coach station at 10.50am arriving at Limehouse by Docklands railway,i have to be back at Victoria Coach station by 5.45pm for the 6.00pm bus back to Nottingham.

    The map point for the Palm Tree is definitely in the right place, as I put it there. In fact it sits in splendid isolation in a small park area backing right onto the canal. But its opening times during weekday lunchtimes/afternoons have been a bit erratic in the past, but it's definitely worth a visit if it's open. Also, the Victoria was closed when I walked past it on a weekday afternoon a few weeks ago, so it's sensible to have some "spares".

    I'll also try and get over to East London at some stage, even if it's just to say "hello". I'm meeting some friends in Twickenham at lunchtime, and I'm supposed to be at a CAMRA meeting in Wandsworth in the evening, but if possible I'll try to get over there for an hour or so. I like to give my Freedom Pass a good workout now and then!

    Enjoy your crawl Al,would have liked to join you but on the dates for both your recent London crawls I have been ferrying an elderly relative to and from out patient appointments.


    I am down in Mile End Park most Tuesdays and the Palm Tree often seems to be lifeless,but it is only really closed when the steel window shutters are down.Often the lights aren't on,but if you push on the doors you may find one that is open,at which point you may have to shout out for service.The tenants live upstairs,and they may notice you milling around outside even if the doors are locked.I can't drink on duty ,so have never been inside,but by all accounts the interior is worth investigating even if the beer quality may be suspect (See Moby's review).

    If you can't get in ,the view of the boats on the canal is interesting

    Have a read of my review if you want to see what happens when you push a door open in the afternoon!
    Ok, maybe just for one......................

    You should definitely have a look at the Palm Tree Al, it has a very interesting interior, also from the outside it is strange to see a onetime street corner pub standing alone in a park. I was a bit miffed at the time of my review as the main purpose of my third visit was to show a friend who hadn't been there the wonderfully quirky inside, but we wasn't allowed inside, this was on a Tuesday just after 1 o clock. The pub is better than my rather meagre rating of 4,maybe now that time has mellowed my ire , I should reinstate my former rating of 7, the beer has been average IMO
    but obviously better than John Smiths Smooth crap.Of the other pubs on your list. Iv'e been to the Eleanor Arms,I'm sure you will like this one, The Grapes, I like it but it is getting more foody over the years, and the Coburn Arms, I cant give a real opinion of this pub as my one and only visit was a Saturday night with England playing football, the place was rammed and the beer was near the end of the barrel,one definite downside was the toilets being awash with the Yellow stuff,and I don't mean the Youngs Bitter .
    Have a good day Al, I'm afraid last Saturdays blow out has blown me out financially as well as having to replace my old car this month so I cant make it, hopefully somewhen in the not too distant future ,I will be able to meet up.
