You can tell us more about Barking.

  • They're all being shut down apart from the two next to the rail station and they're full of cabbies. There are more churches in Barking than there are pubs.
  • westbury arms always used to have a good night in there then straight on to conolly's (legends) i also enjoy a good pint in the captain cook

  • You cant visit barking and not go in to the Spotted Dog one of the oldest pubs in barking outside th station, but not to be confused with the barking dog (which should in my opinion be demolished) - it will be one of the things I will miss when I leave barking. Great glasses of port to while away a sunday afternoon in soft comfy worn chairs or if it is a lovely day you can sit outside in the beer garden. You can have a very relaxed atmosphere, or go on a Friday night when it is a little more fun with the odd band. Old fixtures and fittings NO carpets, NO fruit machines and above all, NO chav's.
  • The Barking Dog - right next to Barking tube/BR station.
  • what happened to the hope and the fishing smack. Says it all methinks
  • The Top-Up poncey pub is great for those crazy Russian Mafia guys selling women (its ok, they dont come with mother-in-laws)
  • The Barking Dog
  • Ship & Shovel (Lunch time)
  • "The Lord Mayors Erotic Dance" is a bloody good pub. It sells all types of beers for half the price as it would cost to get a dog nuetered. "Are we having Hun yet" is a Germans only pub. "Higgleby Pigledy" is a rock pub and has had such bands as "Forty Two in a cage", "Paul Cadens Revolving Machine Head" and "Mangtra" play there.
