|We came in here to escape the abysmal London Fields beer festival and had a pretty good time. There are no worries about choice, maybe 12 cask and 8 keg beers with 5 ciders. Everything we tried was top notch.|
Service was standard East London, either swift and attentive or slow and stroppy. The enthusiasm of young gifted brewers isn't always shared by the bored looking hipsters they rope in to actually serve the stuff.
Walking in the pub is like going back in time to the 50's and is just the right side of grotty. Prices are as expected. A funny bunch of locals...friendly enough, but pretentious.

|Single room, rather dark, pub just outside Hackmey Central station. About 16 handpumps serving cider, perry and real ale plus about 8 "craft" beer pumps. Also serves Howling Hops beers brewed on the premises. Most ales are £3.40 which is, perhaps, a little expensive for those brewed in the cellar! Rather quiet yesterday afternoon but probably gets busy in the evenings. Well worth a visit.|

|The Cock is much improved since being reborn as a very simple and honest real ale and micro brew pub with an equally impressive range of ciders and perries. A micro plant exists in the basement churning out Firkins of local and varied beers under the brand "Howling Hops". All drinkable and pleasant but could be a tad cheaper... However this is a buzzing boozer in the heart of Hackney. Very trendy croud but all friendly and welcoming. So many pubs in the locality have been lost recently which makes the Cock even more precious. Recommend. |

|Was here Monday evening and tried all the house beers. Green Bullet was superb, one of the best beers I've tried for some time - lovely hoppy 4.2% pale ale. Far less crowded than the Pembury on the night but I suspect that may change.|
