An interesting example of post-war pub-building and remarkably intact. It dates from the period 1968-1970 and forms a focal feature in the market area just south of Upton Park Tube station. Architecturally it is quite plain and angular. Internally it has a largely open plan which became the norm from the 1960s. The main drinking area wraps around the servery on three sides, but on the north-west corner there is a small, quasi-separate area leading off and which was presumably a games area. The servery fittings all seem original, simply detailed with a horizontally boarded counter and mirrored back fitting. At the north-east end is some very attractive wooden seating divided by arm rests. Below ground level there lies a substantial function room with partly original bar fittings and some excellent chunky wooden seats. The walls, both inside and out, are painted but this unfortunate (and short-sighted) treatment is likely to have been applied to original exposed brickwork.
