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.

Great medium-sized brewpub in Hackney, home of the Howling Hops beers “ brewed in the basement right below your feet”. I stayed here for almost three hours early on a Sunday afternoon and had a great drinking time. Nine of their own ales were available added by guest beers from London breweries like Five Points and Brodies, among others. Altogether there were 16 hand-pumps, including five devoted to ciders, and furthermore eight on kegs. Some of their own beers are on bottles to take away. Dark wooden interior, sparesley decorated, and with a large L-shaped bar. Classic rock music in the background (Iggy, Jonathan Richman etc). Friendly and informative service – thanks for serving me ales in thirds. I used buss no.30 from Kings Cross (about 15 minutes), it is also quite possible to walk from the nearest tube station, being Bethnal Green (visited 13.07.2014 as the first part of one of my best days in London, ever).
