This pub markets itself as the "last proper pub in Hackney". This would only seem to be true if your definition of 'proper pub' is a local's town bar straight out of the 1980's. The one rectangular room in the tedious 1980's building has a bar down one side, as the previous reviewer noted decorated with various out of date signs, with a fairly basic kitchen area at the back. At the front is a pool table with dart board behind, but certainly not usable simultaneously! Handpumped ales are still Doom Bar and Brakspear's Bitter, with the latter being barely drinkable. I have been to many good local pubs worth visiting: this is not one of them.

A single roomed pub that to me seemed stuck somewhere in the 70's,one of the signs across the top of the bar proclaimed the best ales in Hackney could be found here, naming London Pride,Whitbread Best and Boddingtons,none of these were in evidence of course but it didn't improve,Doombar and Brakespeare Bitter were on offer on the two handpumps and the latter was predictably ordinary.The single square room had plenty of seating scattered throughout and the raised area to the rear I assume doubles up as a stage.Plenty of keg taps dispensing a variety of run of the mill products accompanied the duo of handpumps, at the far end of the bar was an old fashioned food servery, there is a pool table and dartboard here for entertainment.A good mix of locals were in on Saturday lunch time and this pub serves that purpose perfectly,not a bad place but given the available beer I'm not likely to return in the near future.

The Globe is situated in the middle of Hackney.
The pub looks quite nice from the outside and was probably built to serve the estate which is behind it.
Once inside there is a single oblong shaped room with the bar on the right side,the room is carpeted and had comfy bench seating and normal tables and chairs,there is also a raised area to the rear which had normal tables and chairs,there is also a pool table in the room.
There were two real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Youngs Bitter which was a decent enough drink,the other beer was Wadworth 6X.
I thought this was a comfortable and pleasant pub to have a drink in.

This single-room pub looks a bit like a shop conversion. In the front of the room as you enter is a pool table, plus some standard seating and a couple of tall tables and tall stools. The bar counter stretches down the right hand wall, and at the back there’s a raised area looking out onto a vista comprising a small car park and garages, and with all tables laid for diners. By laid, I mean that there were table mats and a knife and fork wrapped in a paper knapkin. Anyway, as I was going for the economy lunch of fish and chips for a fiver, this is where I sat. As well as the fish and chips, I spotted a tray on the bar counter which earlier in the day might have been piled high with clingfilm covered rolls, but which by the time I arrived had only a single, forlorn-looking, roast beef roll on it. I hope that someone took a fancy to it later in the day. But onto the important stuff. They had a couple of Sharp’s ales on – Doom Bar (of course) and Cornish Coaster - the latter being in decent nick.

There was a fair bit of bric-a-brac decor around the place, consisting of stoneware jugs and bottles, globes, sewing machines, a mounted stag’s head, and even a dispay of fans in a glass case. The pub isn’t anything very special, but they have made an effort to give it a bit of character and it does do a couple of ales. It’s not a bad place to stop off for a swift one.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Globe in Morning Lane

Traditional pub, but now called "The Globe in Morning Lane" (for some reason probably best known to the signwriter who must have been paid on a per-letter basis). I was a bit dazzled on walking by the very big and bright array or lager dispensers, but fortunately the were also a couple of discreet handpumps there as well. Very creditable pint of London Pride. Seemed like a friendly place too.
