Tris C left this review about Howl at the Moon

Back in the mid-17th century this was the Maidenhead, later known as the Queen’s Head, acquiring its lycanthropic name around 2010. Situated in a rather unprepossessing area, one that’s a graveyard for lost pubs; this is Hoxton Street’s sole survivor. A first in here the other night and it’s obvious that the hessian sacks and magenta walls have gone but I’d hardly say that this is now a homely pub, resembling something more of an American-influenced live music dive bar. There’s a big projector showing football with the sound off and another smaller TV to the rear showing similar. Furniture is a mixture of fairly conventional tables and chairs augmented with some traditional pews and modern bench/pews fashioned from planks. The plank theme is further used to decorate parts of the walls; the ceiling is painted black and hanging from it is one of those square section tubular steel gantries that sadly are now all the rage. Unsurprisingly given the décor, this is a live music pub with the kind of scuzzy lavs that you’d associate with such a venue – the young customers are exactly the kind of person you’d expect too.
Friendly barmaids were serving up just Darkstar’s Table Beer and Pale Ale at a reasonable £2.20 a half and good but for the second time in the evening, served in a wineglass.
This isn’t my thing, so I’ll not darken its doorway for a second time.

Interesting pub inside, a little different and quirky. If you're sitting outside its plastic glasses, but otherwise its a nice pub. 2 real ales, from Dark Star, kept ok

Located on Hoxton market the pub retains it's tiled exterior. Interior wise it's all reclaimed furniture with the ceiling covered in coffee sacks. 4 real ales and "craft keg" served.
