The Great Eastern, Isle of Dogs

This is a million times better since it re-opened.

The old Waterman's Arms before it closed down was un-welcoming and seemed to be full of the same old faces that were mates of the owners/people who run it (always a bad sign).

The new Great Eastern is far more welcoming, has a good vibe and atmosphere to it and is open to suggestions made by their customers if within reason. You get those who liked their status quo and ask for hooks on the bar again (like that is the most important part of a pub) and resist change but the fact is the old pub closed down because it was not making good business (and drugs I heard).

The pub sells pizza as food, this pub came about ten years too late for me when I would go out for a drink and want a pizza on the way home but I can't blame them for that... or can I?

Great little local... The staff are friendly, helpful, make time to talk to you and get to know you and the girls are pretty hot too ;-)

... but please update the jukebox more! :-)

The Blind Beggar, Whitechapel

The outdoors is an improvement.... Only problem I really have with this place is they have a jukebox so as crazy s this may sound why not let the public choose the music they want to listen to at weekends instead of the same old generic crap that plays every Friday and Saturday.

The Hayfield, Stepney Green

Ideas far above their station, new ideas including 5 entry fee for non-students (you know the people actually have money) and you must have a photo ID to get in, I wonder what kind of person would carry a photo ID with them on a night out? A student maybe... Thought I had taken a wrong turn and ended up in the West End at that price to get in and requirements.
Real shame but this place has turned it's back on locals and regulars.
