My mate Robert is not let out of the house very much these days. So when he has a free evening pass he does like to fill his boots. We meet here in the early evening for the first stop on a bit of a brewery crawl.

WH Brew Pub (formerly Mulligans at the White Hart) - Ginger Beer4.50GoodOn keg dispense. Amber/orange in colour and very gingery.
WH Brew Pub (formerly Mulligans at the White Hart) - Floral Ale4.00AcceptableA chestnut-coloured bitter. Very sweet. So sweet I wonder if perhaps the brew is not fully attenuated?

Early evening visit and standing room only in here. The home-brew seemed to be selling very well.

Early evening, the delightful smell of brewing was very noticeable as soon as we approached the door to enter. We ordered our beers and were immediately invited to have a look at the brewery as they were brewing at the moment. This offer was duly accepted. A thoroughly enjoyable visit.

This pub has now reopened after refurbishment. Anyone who remembers its old days as a dodgy, all-night boozer with lovely etched glass partitions and London’s worst gent’s toilets needs to re-visit and reassess. The home brew is now labelled as being from ‘WH Brew Pub’.

WH Brew Pub (formerly Mulligans at the White Hart) - IPA (previously 5.1%)5.00ExcellentNow labelled as 5.0%. A really good IPA, the flavours enhanced tonight by excellent condition.
WH Brew Pub (formerly Mulligans at the White Hart) - Pumpkin Ale 4.00GoodI do like a seasonal Pumpkin Ale. This one is golden and satisfyingly spicy.
WH Brew Pub (formerly Mulligans at the White Hart) - Irish Red Ale 4.30AcceptableNot my favourite beer style, but we decided to be completist and I had a half. Sweetish and red.

Evening visit and I found the pub closed, there was a chalked sign on the front door inviting people to use the side door, but everything was locked up. This pub is undergoing a major refurbishment so I expect it to re-open soon.

A very rapid pint on passing in the early evening. Not satisfactory – hopefully these are just teething problems for the new brewery here.
BeerABVScoreNotes
WH Brew Pub (formerly Mulligans at the White Hart) - East End Brown Ale4.00PoorNot very nice. The further I went down the pint, the more obvious that this beer had an infection of some sort. I am sure the taste was not that which the brewer had intended.

This used to be a regular haunt of mine in the late 1980s and early 1990s when I worked in the area and the pub was run by the Murphy family. It has changed a lot since then and is currently undergoing a complete transformation with business continuing as usual. I had a good chat with the bar staff and was invited to see the brewery, I was particularly pleased to see supplies of malt some of the very best maltsters including Weyermann of Bamberg. My thanks to Stephen Harris of this site for alerting me to the fact that this pub now brews.

The pub is found in Whitechapel, Greater London, E1 4TP.

This pub was present at the London end of Mile End Road as early as 1750. It was rebuilt in its present form in around 1900 and is a striking building with a cupola high above the corner door. In the 1970s and 1980s it was the principle pub of the small Murphy’s chain of East End pubs, owned by a family of that name. This pub in particular became known simply as ‘Murphy’s’, and the White Hart name was forgotten for a while. It was notorious for its late night lock-ins, and a tap on the side door in the early hours was usually rewarded by the chance of a sly late one. At this time the pub retained superb etched-glass partitions and mirrors. All that was swept away some time in the late-1990s in a controversial refurbishment that left the pub with a large, open-plan, wooden-floored main bar and a function room upstairs. Further refurbishment has come in 2013, and this has seen the introduction of a kitchen and an in-house micro-brewery.

We have visited this pub 15 times, seen 24 different beers and tried 14 of them.
