Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

One of the more mature pubs in the Hackney canon, the Spurstowe Arms works a sophisticated stripped-back charm, never trying too hard to impress – which of course just wouldn’t wash in this trendy part of town. The nondescript exterior would have you believe the Spurstowe was a football pub or stop-off for a desperate quick half, but inside features fresh-cut flowers, polished brass and a grand horseshoe bar. You’ll still spot the odd reassuring cobweb up on high though, and, oddly enough, a bathtub in the beer garden.

The crowd are mostly large groups of friends in their thirties enjoying a slick indie soundtrack, although you’ll also find young families in for a Sunday roast, given the gastropub bias. These crowd-pleasing plates do a mean trade (despite the £15 price tag), especially alongside a headily spiced but smooth Bloody Mary. For the rest of the week, there are four ales on tap.
