We’ve not been to Leyton for a while but we heard it had been spruced up and a pop-up pub for the games was now open. So we set off with a pint promised at the end of our journey.
Leyton Technical Pop-Up Pub is open for the duration of the games in the magnificent Grade II listed former Leyton Municipal Offices on Leyton High Street. Just a stone’s throw from the Olympic Park in Stratford, this is a brilliant pop-up drinking venue brought to Leyton by Antic pubs, who run the Red Lion in Leytonstone and the Clapton Hart. They serve a range of great craft ales from local London breweries including amber ales, IPAs and porter. There are two screens following the games every day and food-wise there are salt beef or salmon and cream cheese bagels for the peckish.
The opening hours at the weekend are approx. midday to midnight. It’s easy to find on the ground floor, underneath the Grand Hall. It has a laid back, vintage retro sporting theme and is an inventive place to relax with the papers and a pint. (LMO building, 256b High Street, Leyton, E10) http://www.leytontechnical.com
