|The Chesham Arms has been closed for one year after it sold to developer Mukund Patel. Patel has not issued a planning application BUT has told the media that he wants to convert to flats. Conversion is not likely to ever be approved. The locals, regulars and CAMRA have been fighting a campaign, supported by Hackney Council to get the pub reopened. Patel is refusing and has converted the ground floor to offices for a period of 2 years - ends 1 August 2015. The offices are not occupied so Patel is losing money, probably about £50k per year. To join the campaign and assist in getting this wonderful and unique pub reopened, please check out www.savethechesham.org or email queries to firstname.lastname@example.org Together we can Save the Chesham!|

|Now a boarded-off building site. I can only speculate on what the future holds but of 3/11/2012 you surely can't get a drink here.|

|My girlfriend's just moved to the area, so we went for a wander to find her a local. We had a quick drink in here to test it out.|
Plasma screens showing football. It wasn't Premier League, but flags and photos suggest this is an Arsenal-leaning pub. Clientele and barman seemed nice. Middle-aged men playing pool; younger crowd of men and women came in as we were there. Other than that quiet for a Sunday.
There was only one ale on, so we both had that. I forget the name, but it tasted good.
I won't rate this pub yet, but it's definitely worth another visit.

|I had high hopes for this place. I do like backstreet locals and I liked the exterior and the interior. Staff were fine, but the beer 'Reservoir Dogs' was not great. And there were no nice alternatives to the standard smiths/strongbow/fosters. I suspect if I went back at a busier time and got a better pint I would give it 9 but just a 6 for this visit. |

|Paid my second ever visit to this pub last night. They had two real ales on Cottage Reservoir Dogs and Nethergate Sheep's Eye, both were well kept. They have a decent food menu and the food we tried was good. The service was really good and freindly. This place hasd a really nice atmosphere. It's obviously a locals pub but 'visitors' are clearly more than welcome. If I lived in Hackney I'd be happy to make this place my local. |
