Tired one room pub with bar to the left. No real ale at all - just keg rubbish.

There's no real ale here, and no sign of food when I visited at about 5.30 PM on a weekday. I had a half of Charles Wells keg Triple IPA for £2.60.

It's an original pub - it even has a few etched and cut glass panels, but not in the original positions I would say. There are even a couple of the Corinthian capitalled columns of which the Victorians were so fond. On the left is a wood framed pub clock set in a wooden arch structure - again, this doesn't look to be in situ.

This is a very small single-room pub. There is a scattering of tall tables and tall stools, plus a half dozen or so normal tables with settles, normal chairs and small stools. This is a very "busy" pub as far as decor is concerned. The walls are covered with loads of prints; one has a large (fake) donkey's head on it; a shelf at frieze height has models of all kinds on it, and on a shelf above the entrance are four model crows looking down on the room. There were also one or two things on the walls that I failed to identify. It's all quite bizarre.

There was no-one else in there when I dropped in at around 5.30 PM, and no-one else had arrived by the time that I left an hour or so later. OK, Wednesday evening is not the most popular night of the week to go out to the pub (or bar), but I reckon they need a few more people in to make a go of it. I'm possibly wrong, but I thought that Hackney hipsters wouldn't flinch at having to pay a fiver or more for a pint of fairly ordinary keg beer.
