Don't know what to make of this one, it's right next to the station and Ridley Road market. Dropped in at lunchtime, and it was fairly quiet. The observation below from 2004 is still correct; mostly Afro-Caribbean men in the pub. This is a pub that serves it's purpose well, and doesn't need to follow any trends. Sort of charming, in a strange way. No real ales. There's a lot of worse station pubs around.

Handily placed for the station. Quiet, and shows football and other sport(Sky) when broadcast in both the front and back bars. Elderly, local clientele. Can be busy as it's rather small.

A pub right next to Dalston Kinglands station and oppsite the end of Ridley Road. Very busy, noisy, smelly piece of pavement outside. For me this is charm of Dalston though. As for the pub, unless you're a 70 year old gent of Afro/Carribean origin I should take a wander down Balls Pond to the Wellington instead.
