I popped in here to watch the Spurs v CSKA match. I had no trouble getting a seat as the trendy clientele are mainly rugger and palates types. There is a wide selection of ales, some at a reasonable - for London - £4 a pint. I had the Five Point Brick Brown (?) which was pleasant and quite strong. It is nicely furnished in the traditional style, but, as others have said, it is very dark. I didn't eat any food, but it looked nice.

Pleasant but rather dark pub that I presume has been refurbished. Staff were very friendly and the beer, I drank the Hackney Brewery offering, was splendid. We had just enough light to eat by and the food was okay without being anything special. Not really my sort of place but fine for an occasional visit.

Potentially a decent pub but one that insults its customers by making them drink in the dark. I had to use my phone to see what was on the pump clips! I therefore strongly advise a daylight visit unless you are blessed with excellent night vision. What exactly is wrong with having lighting in a pub?

Another pub that I quite liked. From the outside, it seemed like a traditional East London boozer. But inside, it clearly catered for a young, trendy crowd. It was very dark inside and loud dance music was playing. TVs were showing both live football and live rugby, whilst meals were still being served quite late into the evening. Lord knows how people could see what they were eating though. The food and drink has a Cornwall emphasis - something they were calling the 'Cornwall Project' or something similar. I'm not quite sure what that was all about. Ales were Tintagel Cornwall's Pride, Trumans Swift & Runner, Sambrooks Wandle & Caledonian Drop Kick. I quite liked the atmosphere in here. Worth a try.

Newly refurbished with a nice rotating selection of ales on a £3 happy hour. Great and interesting food too. Menu changes almost daily with fresh produce brought up from Cornwall. Friendly staff and punters alike. Nice to see they've kept the L shaped pool table too!

An architectural gem. Full of stained glass and nice wood with a proper bar and a snug. A decent pint and friendly staff. Too many gaming machines and loud tellies though. Looking like an endangered species - a working class pub in Hackney!

I have no idea why anyone would like this pub. I suppose because its in Homerton where the handfull of pubs are by and large fairly grotty. Its ok for watching football, guiness drinkers tell me it does a good pint and the threat of violence is only at def-con 2. Apart from that I wouldn't hurry there of an evening. Ambience is that of a wake for a small time gangster whenever I've been in there (about a dozen times somehow), and there's usually a gentleman of the street in the doorway.

I like this pub, I like the way it's split into two halves and you have to go outside to get to the other half. I've only ever been in the young persons half which has the most TVs I've ever seen in a pub, and a normal pool table and also an L shaped pool table which I was quite excited about but then I played it and it wasn't quite as good as I thought it would be. It seemed like it might get a bit of a party atmosphere going on Sat nights with loud music from the tellys and music videos. IKt has one of those quiz machines with bullseye which I like too. A good place to watch football.

nice enough pub (though this is Homerton and you are presumably lost). No cask beer though, so can't really qualify as a great pub.

cheap drink.

Probably the best pub in Homerton,with an outdoor patio area for use in summer but with outdoor speakers which mean that one can enjoy music from the jukebox whilst enjoying the sunshine.

Nice friendly staff such as Nick who I struck up a friendly conversation with about Mr Qs pubs and the spirit group in general.

Mr Qs area with four pool tables one of thich is an L-shaped table-one of only two that now exist within the Mr Qs chain of pubs.
Further pool table in the public bar.
