My local pub. It’s brilliant. The main thing which splits opinion is the vibe of the place. It’s a big open room which people have compared to a community centre of church hall atmosphere! It’s not cosy in the sense of having little corners to hide away in, but it is cosy in that it’s always welcoming and has a good mix of people in it. The pub quiz on Mondays is great! Beers wise they have a good selection, as well as all the Milton handpumps they have 3 or 4 Belgium bottled beers and a couple of real ciders. Pegasus beer is the one to go for, wonderful light golder ale.

Close to Hackney Downs, a wooden interior, slightly edgy old-style boozer with a student feel to it and graffiti on the walls. Selection is mostly Milton cask ales. They do pizzas, did not try. Value is quite good but not best in town for cask ale. Service was swift but the place was not at its busiest time. Overall, quite a safe choice when in the area

Quite large traditional pub, was pretty quiet during our visit. Ten out of 16 cask lines were on, also 6 more kegs. Interesting selection, at least for me since I haven’t seen Milton, well, anywhere so far. Good place to have several pints.

Visited the 5th January 2016 - Nice huge place. Ambiance was really strange because the place was empty with no music... Beer selection is ok, Milton beers are nice. Food is pizza they are looking fine but I didn’t taste it. Place ok, nothing special.

Nice old-fashioned boozer. Really cheap whisky. Beer prices are reasonable. Awesome staff. Beer quality can be incredibly erratic. I would like to see more festivals from this place. I love the atmosphere and it’s a great place to sink in London nightlife. Cool old pub. Great times have been had there.

Visiti on a week night so wasn’t very busy. Selection was pretty poor and nothing exciting. More like a local pub than beer bar. Overall nothing really bad about it but also nothing great.

Nothing special, mostly a students place. Beer list was ok, but for sure not impressive. Its not a place I would recommend.

You feel there like in McDonald , but Marcus Aurelius was really good, and a guy behind the bar quite knowledgeable. Worth trying for this beautiful stout.

Spacious pub with a good range of cask ales and more interesting stuff on keg/bottle. Really enjoyed the pizza. Good pub.

A large, spacious pub renowned for its beer selection although it seemed to be limited to mainly Milton beers when I visited. It was a Saturday evening and it was very busy but quite quiet as many of the customers (students perhaps?) seemed to be reading or playing board games! (Visited 30 November 2013).

Big pub. Great pub. Like my old sixth form, but with great beer. Love the blackboard and array of furniture. 2 mins from the Cock Tavern in exciting Hackney. Lovely.
