The actress and the bishop went to this pub... and that's about as decent as this place gets. 3 handpumps dispensing just 1 which had Doom Bore. An upstairs bit seemed to be available. Wooden floored with a bit that looks like its for bands. A staircase is to your left as you enter with crap rubbish like Adele being blasted out upstairs. And this was a Thursday afternoon.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Actress & Bishop

Large music pub, with sparse seating and rustic wood decor. Small stage to one side, with more space upstairs (not visited). Continental-style decking seating area out on the pavement at the front. Two of three handpumps had clips, but the Pedigree went off as it was being poured so just over-cold Doom Bar available.

Once inside there is a large oblong shaped room with the bar on the left side,the large main drinking area was bare boarded and seemed pretty bare with hardly any tables or chairs,there were a couple of tables and bucket chairs and one tall table with low backed stools,there was a small raised area to the right which had a dj rig on it.
There was only one real ale on the bar which was Pedigree,this was decent enough.
The bar was almost empty on my early evening visit.
I thought this was a pretty poor bar compared to the other bars i went in on my tour of Hockley.
