user reviews of the Amhurst, Hackney

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Now gorily-named the 'Hand of Glory', the darkened décor along with the wicker animal head lampshades, dried, twisted thorns hanging above the bar and museum-like glass sideboard housing animal skulls and taxidermic paraphernalia give somewhat of a Gothic air, but it seems to works with friendly staff, great beer and great music. The only 'slight' remark would be the '2-tone' (as in the record label) appearance of the Gents'),

I miss this pub...

This was once a pleasantly scruffy local, selling one or two decently kept ales, then it got a rather regrettable make-over, and became one of the very first "Modern" [ie Yuppie] bars in the area. The people were quite ok, however, and it was open a bit later, so I still went, now and again, faute de mieux.
Then there was a fire, under extraordinarily suspicious circumstances, which burnt down almost the entire block in which it stood. Could be something to do with it being Listed? Anyway, what was left of the pub was demolished about two years ago.
Now it's just an empty site with a fence round it, but in a very desirable location, as the estate agents say: and if the Pembury can open again, anything is possible. Who knows what the future may hold?
