It might not be a classic feature of the pub garden but for this East London pub, the mini train which frequently travels round The Holly Tree has become a huge hit.

The Holly Tree in Leytonstone, which is run by Remarkable Pubs, opened in October.

The owners decided that they wanted to do something different to help draw the punters in, so they put a train track in with a mini train which runs around the garden.

Elton Mouna, interviewed in the above video, is the managing director of Remarkable Pubs. He said: "The owner of the company, Robert Thomas, has always had an interest in transport. He wanted to get a train in the garden.

"People seem to love it. Children love it. The more outgoing, adventurous adults like it as well. It's proving to be a real draw.

"At Christmas it's going to be magical out there with the garden lit up and people bringing the kids along to see Father Christmas. It's just as appealing for adults.

"It's quite surreal when you are in the pub at night eating your food and the train goes by. It's created an enormous buzz in the area and a great deal of expectation.

"This area has been crying out for The Holly Tree to be refurbished in a way that could create lots of excitement."

And there was a lot of interest in the pub when it first opened its doors.

"There aren't many pubs that open up and there are a queue of people waiting to get in on the first day," Elton added.
