Pub
$$
“This is a great pub for meeting local folks. It is also well known as a stopping place for boaters. This lovely old pub is situated where Lea Bridge Road meets the River Lea, welcoming commuters, travellers and lorries from Leyton, Walthamstow and beyond. A few years ago The Princess got a makeover and is a welcome respite from the frantic traffic of the nearby road. At the heart of the pub is a stove fire which is rare in London pubs now. There is a terrace facing the canal and picnic tables out by the towpath, making it an ideal summer watering hole. But don't take my word for it, come and enjoy for yourselves.”
