I'm not and most definitely not a hipster, but I have been to this pub a couple of times and I think it's great. A good selection of beer, friendly staff and a tasteful refurbishment. It most definitely not full of hipsters despite what earlier posts state.

My one and only visit so far to this pub was after attending a game at the Emirates.

We got the bus down to Dalston Junction and then walked round here later on a Summer Sunday afternoon.

Busy outside, empty inside due to the good weather.

3 ales on hand pumps, I had 2 different beers and both were good. The services was fine but I was made to feel slightly like an outsider while I waited to be served.

Not much more to say about this place, I probably will return if I'm in the area and wanting a pint of ale

We are close neighbours to this pub and occasionally pop in for a drink. We went there on this Sunday just past (15/09/13) and couldn't believe how badly we were treated! There was no queue at the bar and yet 3 members of staff managed to completely ignore us for 4 minutes, in spite of us being right in front of them. The two female staff were too busy having their own conversation to stop to serve us and the male member of staff just blatantly didn't seem to want to serve us. Will not be going back and will not recommend to anyone.

"The artistic leanings of a young, upwardly mobile community"

You know, there are only so many silly haircuts/beards, wafer-thin cardigans, skinny jeans and plimsolls one can handle in a crowded pub of an evening.

The clientele of the Prince George are, in fact, actually a parody of themselves. Rich kids sporting charity shop ironic "chic" - I might just pop in next time with cream chinos and a cashmere sweater just to look alternative.

That said, it's a decent pub with an interesting selection of beers. Pints of Fullers' Honey Dew lager, for instance. Served (reassuringly expensive) in a large continental-style goblet. Sometimes, anyway.

Late opening too when I visited, which is always a bonus. Worth a visit, despite the proliferation of aforementioned arty weird beards.

A promising pub this one. Let down unfortunately by the rudest staff I've ever seen! I will not be going back, despite it being pretty much my local pub. I've given it several tries but after the hilariously bad service I was given last week by soma complete idiot dressed as a Specials wannabe who wouldnt know polite service and manners if they bit him...Im staying well away.
