About the Pub

Established in 1835, and re-opened in 1994 as a real ale and jazz pub, it quickly acquired iconic status as a leading edge in the cask beer revolution. When owners Steve Barnes and Will Williams (under whom it had been North London CAMRA Pub of the Year four times) announced their intention to retire, a massive campaign by local people and CAMRA supported by Hackney Council led to the pub being eventually saved. It closed for a refurbishment of the ground floor early in 2013 but has now re-opened with welcome new loos. Simple snacks menu of toasties, Pieminster pies, baked Camembert and tuna melts are served, at a price which won't break the bank. Traditional ciders and perries are available served by air pressure through what look like keg taps but don't be fooled. Beer menu will of course be subject to regular change, but something from a London brewery should usually be available and possibly a mild! Brian Masters Jazz trio play on Thursday nights. Two minutes from the Regent's Canal. Five minutes from buses on City Road, 10 to 15 mins from Old St stations. From Sept 2014, a member of CAMRA's LocAle scheme. Runner-up in the North London CAMRA Pub of the Year competition 2016, Winner in 2017. Serves beer from their own cellar - BLOCK brewery. Reported as being "good stuff" but not always available as they sell it as fast as they can brew it. Notice hanging above the bar: for business reasons we have ceased CAMRA discount (Nov 2018).
