This used to be (a slightly intimidating) proper east end boozer frequented only by locals and selling bad beers, but since under new management this now seems to be a little Dalston gem. Without doing it up in any sort of drastic way, the new owners have put a new life into the place by making very simple changes - but changes which have completely transformed the atmosphere of the pub. Now with real ales, good beers and wine, free wi-fi, live music nights from various folk/ country/bluegrass/ rumba/bosa artists, plus pub quizzes, games nights, and all sorts of other unusual events, along with great food always on offer, this pub is fast becoming a Dalston favourite.

Went in last weekend for All-Day Breakfast. It was FANTASTIC! We even brought our friends back later.
Great brekkie and best Bloody Mary I've ever had. Definitely worth a try.... lovely to have a the option of 'Hair of the Dog' if you want it.
Evenings are great too - often have Live Music and other events.
The new management are making good changes and are open to suggestions.

Under new management so I am informed. Went in for a couple after Leyton Orient game. TV's gone - now selling range of top notch lagers Czech Lagers and Leffe - in the real ale department there is one handpull and it had on Nightwatchman from East London Brewing Co @ 4.5% - it was top notch condition and it was a shame we had to leave for inferior beer elsewhere.

No beer, Hackney boozer. Why people drink in these places, I don't know.
