About the Pub

There has been a Cock tavern in central Hackney since the 1650s, this latest incarnation having been built by Truman's in the 1930s. It is a bustling, town-centre, single-roomed pub which boasts Hackney's smallest pub garden and good (for Hackney) beer prices. The Howling Hops brewery was formerly located in the cellar, and whilst they have moved out, the shared ownership of the pub remains the same and four of their beers are usually on sale, alongside varying guest beers and an excellent selection of real ciders, normally at least 6 available. Basic but high-quality bar snacks are served and you may also ask to bring outside food in, for example from the Sutton and Sons Fish and Chip shop round the corner. Also an excellent selection of keg and bottled beers, and innovative and interesting low alcohol and alcohol free drinks, many made locally. Regular themed nights include the monthly 'cheese night', and the 'hop swap' where punters are encouraged to bring a beer to swap with others and taste. On busy nights you may find someone playing the piano for a singalong. Brewers from nearby breweries (Including 5 Points) can regularly be found propping up the bar, and they and bar staff are always keen for a chat about the beer on offer, or the beer scene more generally.
