This must be a weird pub when there isn't anything going on at The Excel.
This place is HUGE. Get lost in it while a bit drunk big. Hang on this isn't where I came in big. Was this the bar I was at earlier, nope, good grief how did I get here big.
Because it has to be. As the Excel kicked out around a thousand rowdy roller derby fans, the staff must feel like the men at Helms Deep about to weather a storm of demanding bar patrons.
And they did so in fine style. Efficiency is key here, take order, serve, change. BANG! On to the next one. It could be impersonal and robotic, but the staff are all friendly - but not at the expense of the speed.
There were plenty of places to sit, and plenty of different areas, so it didn't just feel like a booze - warehouse.
The only issue I really had with the place was a lack of the most party hard of all spirits - Jagermeister. But to be honest, it's not a huge problem.
A pub with fantastic atmosphere and has all the markings of a great local.
This pub has two very distinct faces. The first face, the pub for locals around Royal Victoria Dock and Custome House to go to after work to have a pint and some pub grub.
The second face is the better face, sadly. This is the one when large exhibitions are being run at the Excel centre. when it is busy, rammed to the rafter with a great buzz. Often this happens during the day and so to accomodate this, the better food menu is offered then too.
This is not good for the people who want some pub grub and are offered a substandard menu if you get in there after 5pm…
There is a good range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks as well as plenty of seating on four levels. Each has a slightly different character to it.
All of the bar is welcoming and warm and staff are usually pretty good at serving you.
Prices aren’t too bad but more tailored to the businessman on conference than the local man supping a pint.
