  Has had it in terms of deco, butrecently refurbished.

Music Fri - Sun, Jukebox, Pool Table Cheap but good bear, serves food.

Used to work there until Dec 05, most of the old bar staff are there, Pam, Lyndsey, Denise, but the rest have moved on, not the same pub since Landladys departure or rest of staff, but still worth a visit!

  I have lived in Australia for quite some time but have been able to visit Ilford a number of times over the last few years. I found the Cranbrook Pub a good place to drink and eat good cheap food. The bar staff are friendly, one has been there for years, and the owner was also friendly. But the security guard is awfully rude. However apart from him - good atmosphere, good staff, drink and food.

  I rarely visit pubs, but I was fairly impressed with The Cranbrook, serving cheap food and drinks and a no nonsense style. However, there is a horrid, rude security staff member present on the weekends. He treated me and my friends like scum, and antagonised me for not having a drink in my hand during the first England world cup match, although the owner had just served us over ?20 worth of food! I have never felt so threatened, and I didn't even receive an apology, even after he attempted to chuck us out for no clear reason, as there were plenty of fully grown men behind who we''d seen had ordered not a drop of alcohol. He is a middle aged, thin black man, long dreads, and a horrible attitude. Please stay clear.
