Small pub, friendly atmosphere, no frills, no loud music, nice draft Guinness. How great to find an old style east end pub that's not been hipsterised, and where you can enjoy a pint and hear what your friends are saying.

I have a simple if idiosyncratic system for rating pubs. It goes as follows.

All pubs automatically get a five out of ten, just by virtue of the fact that they are a pub and they are still in business.

Corner pubs automatically get an extra point. There is something about the light from the double aspect and being able to watch people go by on two streets that I just like.

Estate pubs also get an automatic extra point, by virtue of the fact that there are not many left.

The only pub that doesn't automatically get a five is a pub that has been turned into a gastropub or a yuppie bar. They automatically get a four, even if they are on a corner.

I'm giving the Hungerford a seven. It automatically gets a five, plus one for being on a corner and another point for being a proper East End boozer.

I was in here at 12.30 in the afternoon. There were about ten people in there, all East End geezers. Playing pool and drinking before lunchtime. Excellent!

Landlady was friendly as well, and there is a nice pub cat (Persian long-hair I think)

This place won't be here much longer. I advise you visit sooner rather than later.
