28 Love It
South Hackney

One of Hackney’s hidden gems, this eclectic boozer draws a crowd of loyal locals to an interior that mixes candlelit antiques and modern curiosities. Food during the week comes courtesy of Northern Soul Food, with tasty, traditional roasts on a Sunday. Cocktails (around £8) are a hit – a bloody mary with horseradish seems the favourite on weekend afternoons. Draughts are a mixture of craft beers and less exciting brands such as Peroni and Erdinger. A varied calendar of events such as film nights enliven the weekends.

Loveliest wee pub I know. The people the cosiness, the food and drinks!

Charming local boozer for all. Kids welcome till 7. Quirkey courtyard and covered smoking area at the rear. Usually three cask ales, a cider and three lagers on tap plus Guinness. Great range of spirits, wines, and unusual mixers on offer.
Sunday roasts and midweek food too. They play a good selection of tunes at all times of day.
Ok, it's my local, so do me a favour and don't come here!

I have moved to hackney recently and have found that this is the best pub so far discovered. The staff are lovely. The food is fantastic (on a Sunday evening there is free roast potatoes and gravy!). They play a good range of eclectic music. Some of the draughts are a little boring but they do have hoegarrden and leffe on tap! Smoking area is decent and it has an under cover sofa area. The decor is cosy and traditional with dashes of quirky and Nordic memorabilia (it's run by Norweigans!). Only con is pricy pints but that's expected. I highly recommend.
