For 2 years I have been eating at Stone Cave for at least once a month. The food is great, Atmosphere is great, Service is exceptional and it is well priced. Great place for all occasions. Recommended place in Dalston.

A mere hop, skip and ladylike stumble from Dalston Kingsland station is the Print House, a four-storey former factory which is home to the innovative Bootstrap Company and the annual outing of the Dalston Roof Park. Designed by Zector Architects it's a staggering space – and not just because of the views over the City.

Has anyone checked out the Anglia Grove Snooker Club? It's underneath the Victorian railway arches under the Hackney Downs Railway Station. Recently refurbished. Very atmospheric, proper East End snooker club, very authentic unlike those glitzy american clubs. This is a club for serious players. 10 Full size snooker tables , 2 pool tables , Slot machines and licensed bar. Friendly, fun staff. Off the beaten track but well worth finding, it's a local secret. Has large tv screen so that you can watch football whilst waiting for a table. Real mix of clients which adds to the uniqueness of the club. Busy on the weekends and public holidays so book a table in advance.
