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 Beast Feast, alongside tasty, traditional roasts on a Sunday. Beers look like they could be a draw, with Kona Big Wave Golden Ale, Berlin Pilsner and Brooklyn Lager just some of those on draught.
Keep an eye out for quizzes on Tuesdays, plus DJs playing at the weekend.
Our kitchen is the home of street food legend Beast Feast who is serving a variety of dishes including burgers and ginger battered haloumi between Monday and Saturday, and an immense roast on Sundays.
There is a wide selection of drinks and we rotate our drafts and ales on a regular basis, but everyone’s favourite (including the landlord’s) is the Big Wave golden ale from Hawaii.
You can also book our back room or garden snug for your party up to 40 people, for no charge or minimum spend.
We love dogs, and children are welcome until 7pm.

This is a great pub in East London, many say the best in Hackney. It's quite small and cosy, shows live sports, great decor and a good selection of beers! They've always got events on as well. Definitely worth a visit.
Friendly staff, excellent selection of beers and a great vibe; so much so we refer to it as our living room!
The Kenton really is a genuine Neighborhood venue - you can hear the person you're with, and the staff are nice.
I have drank in the Kenton for decades, man & boy and have seen many transition throughout. The pub has a eclectic mix of locals, which highlights the richness of culture in Hackney today. The staff are without a doubt the most welcoming in Hackney. Giving customers diverse and personal warmest that screams community LOVE and Maddie is is a icon in so many areas that if I continue writing my drink will get warm ❤️
Simply great. Proper neighbourhood local but with all you can expect from the east end in terms of style, clientele, beer selection (IPA & gluten free provided for!) and pop up food. Beware of the "guvnar". Oh and the Guinness game!
We went on a business tripp with the our company arranged by Kenton's owner Egil Johansen. 30 employes having a great time with a good and fun program. The pub had a comforting theme and good food.
We recommend this pub for both social with your work colleges and privat parties.
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!
Beautiful place, brilliantly unique and people are very friendly! I would definitely recommend this wonderful Pub.
