On the main road heading north into Hackney’s main centre, this pub is on the corner of one of the smaller streets heading towards the railway track near London Fields station. I never went in this place when I was playing for London Fields Cricket Team back in the early 2000’s, which is a shame as it has a good vibe to it (although I’m not entirely sure if it existed in its current form back then). With its central ’Cheers’ like bar and very dark wood appearance it has a very appealing set-up with the seats naturally positioned around the exterior walls of this almost square drinking space. There’s several ale pumps here but spaced out along a couple of different sides of the bar and there’s some decent bottles available too with Sambrooks brewery having a presence here with their cask. Laid back in the daytime it attracts a party crowd late on.
