The owners of this pub had good reason to celebrate ten years ago this week.

A Walthamstow pub has been named the best in east London by the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA).

Ye Olde Rose and Crown, in Hoe Street, scooped the top prize for the division's pub of the year this week.

Bun Constantinou, who is one of the five co-owners of the bar, said he was "gobsmacked" at the news.

He said: "We're very pleased but also quite shocked.

"We were runners-up for the last two years so to win the award outright is amazing."

The pub, which recently celebrated the third anniversary of its reopening as a music and theatre venue, will receive its award in May.
