This place is fantastic! It has a crazy selection of beers, from their own Howling Hops ones, through all the usual suspects of new school London Brewers and far beyond. They also have 4 or 5 real ciders on at any one time. Thier food is nice, though simple, home made sausage rolls, scotch eggs and the like. My only beef with it is that it gets too busy sometimes and is consequently very loud.

I enjoyed hanging out with the RB crew trying the HH brews during RBESG. Could easily spend a good few afternoon hours here. Similar feel to its brethren pub Southampton Arms with plenty of wood, tables, minimal design features etc. Guest taps feature as well as ciders. Efficient bar staff. Chilled atmosphere. Can say it’s worth making the visit out to Hackney.

Now that’s a proper pub. Old school style. Very nice decor, great selection. Stay around and you might get a job on a boat.

Spacious pub that can still get rather crowded. Modern interior but still manage to feel like a classic pub. Focused on Howling Hops beer, but with a good selection of other breweries as well, mainly other London micros.

Visited during RBESG 2014. Kinda Classic style English pub, not very crowded on an early Saturday. Lots of Howling Hops- beers on tap and cask, but thats not my favorite brewery. Had a good time though.

Lots of home brews and guests here, but the ones I tried very not very impressive. Obviously appeals to a yournger clientelle than me. But a good place for tickers.

Nice old British pub. Big tap list of their beers and guest taps. Good service and prices. Below average beer. A cool place to visit.

caesar  (301) Bunnik/Utrecht, Netherlands | August 18, 2014
Old classic british interior. Very dark inside. Like going back in time 100 years. No atmosphere at all. Lots of cask beer, several kegs. Very friendly and enthusiastic staff. Quite nice selection as well, although their own beers were not that good. It could be a great pub, but it didnt work for me.

Visited during RBESG2014, traditional old school boozer with a selection of decent beers, pub dog, selection of howling hops plus guests. Pub I could easily spend a long afternoon in.

Small corner pub with stripped back decor. Small but airy with a tiny yard outside. Howling Hops Brewery in the basement under the bar. Carries around 8 or more of their own beers on cask/keg, plus about 4 real cider/perry taps, and 6+ guest keg, often featuring Kernel, Siren, or others from the London scene. No food but bar snacks such as pork pies and scotch eggs offered.

Nice good sized corner pub. Lots to drink and the usual pub fare, precise are pretty compatible and service is decent. Beer list is extensive, with their own and many more. Pretty good.
