Re-opened at the start of 2018 after a lengthy and extensive refurbishment, and has now reverted to it's original name - The Red Lion. Despite living in East Ham for 39 years, we'd never ventured into the pub in the days when it was The Hammers. No particular reason for that - not really close enough to be convenient, and nothing about it to lure us inside. However, since it's makeover, we owed it to ourselves to give it a try. Not really a gastro-pub, though there is an emphasis on food - particularly a large range of pizzas on offer. As far as real ales go, Doom Bar and a "coffee porter" (I've forgotten the name of) were on offer, as well as a hand-pumped fruit cider (not for me!) - a forth pump was waiting for another beer to be put on. They also sell an extensive range of craft beers - the two we tried were excellent. As an added bonus, the pub has a large and pleasant garden at the rear. The staff were very friendly, and highly delighted the pub had just been voted the best in East Ham - though as I cynically pointed out to them - that's as much a reflection on their competition! Obviously, The Red Lion is unashamedly geared up to appeal to the young professionals slowly moving into the area - and it's prices reflect that. But if you want cheap beer, there are three other pubs in the area that can offer you that! Personally? We've waited a long time for the area to get a decent pub - so plan to use it regularly.

Still trying to get into this firm, really difficult almost as difficult as slipping into a medium sized cashmere jumper. I thought I would do some research on this place, so I hired that green street on DVD. Two hours in and im well confused I could not work out why a giant shine wad grabbing Tom hanks' groin and sucking out a bladder infection. How was this connected with west ham. At first i thought it was the life story of 'Cass'
What a plonker I am! I hired out green mile by mistake.
Back to the drawing board.

The regulars in this pub more or less adopted my elderly father and looked out for him as he got older and frailer. When he died recently a dozen of them came to his funeral and Steve, the landlord, held the reception in the pub for us. I can't thank them all enough, but I can give them a good rating.
