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 Sub Cult, alongside tasty, traditional roasts on a Sunday. Beers look like they could be a draw, with Kona Big Wave Golden Ale, Truman Roller IPA and Brooklyn Lager just some of those on draught.
Keep an eye out for film nights on Mondays, plus DJs playing at the weekend.

The staff are damn fine human beings and many kick ass mates of mine drink here hence you always have a good time sometimes too good
Beautifully decorated, lovely areas to hire, feels very much like you're at home, it's a relaxed friendly atmosphere and the food is fantastic. What more could you want?
Plus there's a quiz night... yep x
This is my favourite pub in London, hands down. It's my regular Sunday Roast haunt (try the lamb) and the atmosphere is so relaxed and friendly, it really does feel like an important part of the community, without any of the pretentious vibe you can get from other Hackney pubs. Plus the music selection is always great!
Everyone's constantly up for it. The music always eleavates me to a higher plane of consciousness and I come out wishing I never left. I hate my life.
Inside the Kenton you feel the essence of everything that is awesome about the capital. It's like getting a massive hug from an old friend that loves you, a really cool friend who knows how to party hard.
Really friendly staff team create a great atmosphere here add the great drinks and snacks and its the best local in town
Best pub ever! FACT! love this place, great atmosphere, great staff, you are always guaranteed a great time whatever day of the week. x x
Always my favorite! Great beer & the happiest most welcoming staff ever, who always play great music too xxx
The Kenton has an amazing atmosphere, appealing to all age groups. The staff are the most relaxed and the friendliest in the area!!!
Fantastic staff who stay for a long time creating a great atmosphere. Cosy and well designed but yet relaxed interior, interesting weekly activities and fantastic beer choice. Oh and great garden. Top notch
It was my local, lovely and bestest pub for three years while I was doing my degree.
It helped me through plenty of times, good and bad, with both friendly and completely unobtrusive staff.
And as a double bonus, they frequently do absolutely top-shelf events as well!
The best, ever.
