The Pembury Tavern, Hackney

I'm a longtime resident of this area and this pub is a great new addition. First things first, the selection of beer is excellent. I've not ventured into the wines and spirits side of things so can't comment on those. The landlord is friendly and welcoming. I really like the fact that the pub is non-smoking, and also that it has a good selection of games including bar billiards and pool as well as board games. It also gets all the newspapers, so it's easy to spend time here ;)

There are a few things that would make it even better:
The ambience is a little sterile, especially when the pub is quiet. The range of bar snacks would be improved with simple stuff like bread and olives, biltong, and perhaps a cheese board or some sandwiches until the kitchen gets going. Any provision for bicycles would be most welcome, I agree with the other comments here about not wanting to leave anything on the railings outside and the fact that you can't see out the windows to keep an eye on your wheels.

All in all though a good boozer and I really hope it will do well and flourish in this area.
