The Goose

Stonegate Pub Company has invested £200,000 refurbishing the Goose pub in Walthamstow, one of the package of 333 wet-led pubs it acquired from Mitchells & Butlers in 2010. Manager Natashia Dingwall said: “The Goose is the first thing people see when they get off the train at Walthamstow Central, so for many it’s their first impression of the area. Before there was a feeling that it was a bit tatty and unloved, but what we’ve been trying to do with this refurbishment is to make it a pub Walthamstow can be proud of.”

The Goose, formerly the Goose and Granite, also used to be called Flanagan's and before that, Flanagan's Tower when it also had the rather unalluring nom de plume of  'The Cut-Throat'. (many years before that it was The Tower Hotel)
Back then it had high, impenetrable, shuttered windows and you couldn't tell whether it was open or not. This didn't matter too much because no one was ever brave enough to go in there anyway. Don't worry, it's all better now. Since the pub was taken over by the East London Pub Co, now Mitchells and Butlers, we can all pop in for a pint and a bite to eat on our way home from work or the shops without trepidation. 
This large corner pub is located directly opposite Walthamstow Central tube station and adjacent to the bus station and
has many similarities with the Lord Palmerston - the beer is cheap with Stella under £2.50 a pint and London Pride under £2. The food is also cheap and hearty (the menu is the same as the Palmerston's), and there are many screens around the pub where you can catch up with the footy on Sky – again just like the Palmerston which is also owned by Mitchells and Butlers. This popular, busy pub opens late Friday and Saturday nights.
