The Cock Tavern, Hackney

After the usual excellent visit to the Pembury Tavern, our evening concluded at the Cock Tavern yesterday. It was busy as usual with a couple of Howling Hops ales, a few guests and a number of real ciders and craft beers. The Howling Hops ales were Pale XX & Tropical Deluxe. Guests were Three Sods Dark Magus, Beatnikz Republic Crimson Flare & 2am Poet, Five Points Brick Field Brown & Brick Peckham Pale. Ciders were Snail's Bank Apply Dappley, Pig Squeal, Tumbledown & Apple & Ginger, Turner's Apple Pie, Upper House Farm Medium, Thistly Cross Whisky Cask & Pulpt Flare. Another good visit. Although no new ciders for me on this occasion.

Neighbourhood, East Village

Last stop before a visit to the London Stadium was this modern bar/café in the heart of what was the athletes' village for the Olympics. Just the solitary real ale was on, which was Westerham Godswallop. The place was fairly busy. But it is large enough to handle the crowds, with both home and away fans inside. There was a table football game near the entrance and there is an open kitchen at the rear. Certainly a different kind of place, that I would try again if passing.

Leyton Star, Leyton

Another pub that I tried yesterday lunchtime, that I'd not previously visited. It's a fairly typical London boozer. But apparently it's part of a chain. I don't believe I've been in any of the others in the chain. Five Points Pale & Best were the 2 real ales. I opted for the Best. Live Premier League football was showing on the TVs. Bar staff were friendly.
