I came here once getting on for ten years ago and wasn’t that impressed, not least because of the sky-high beer prices. A return the other evening and I don’t think anything has changed. This pub dates back to 1634 but was rebuilt in 1898 and was once a Whitbread’s house, one which has undergone a multitude of name changes in the last couple of decades, thankfully reverting back to the original one.
This is quite a large pub, most of which runs along trendy Stoke Newington Church Street. Technically, it’s on four levels, probably to do with the topography. The lower level, fronting onto Stamford Hill, is reserved for dining, but I don’t know if eating is permitted at other tables, but I’d guess so. Either way, at around 8.00 pm, I didn’t see anyone dining. Then there’s a smaller raised area by an entrance then a further one, with some Chesterfields. Above is an impressive lantern, out of which vents an extremely ugly aircon unit. Next up, the highest level is delineated from the former with balusters. The walls are partially clad in plain matchboard and bare brick with some small old brewery mirrors. The bar is incredibly long, field panelled and painted dark grey with a chequerboard apron. Above, three chrome ceiling fans worked overtime. The floor is modern bare boarded and furniture is simple and solid. Music played and it was a little loud, but not loud enough to drown out the sound of the live music coming from below, which made the floor shake. Customers were thin on the ground, despite the glorious weather and time of day, but were generally quite mixed.
Ales: four unused pumps – I asked the barman if there was any real beer and he replied ‘Nah’. CAMRA confirms. I plumped for a half of Five Points Pale on keg at a very stiff £2.70 a half. Once warmed up, it was quite nice.
This pub is ok, but the lack of ale is a disincentive to return.
Open until 1.00 am on Thursday and 4.00 am on Friday and Saturday.

A nice looking pub inside and out,now opened out inside and although it must have been an impressive place in the past I didn't think it was too badly modernised. Only three beers on Sunday lunchtime,Hackney Best Bitter, Tintagel Castle Gold and Harbour Special,I opted for the Gold which turned out to be off so moved on to the Harbour Special which was anything but Special so bad I left half of it,I didn't risk a go at the Hackney as there seem to be much in the way of cellarmanship going on here.Its a shame as I quite liked the pub but the beer was disgusting. A 7/10 has become a 4.

They had five ales on in here - Sambrook's Wandle; Hackney Brewery Best Bitter; Sharp's Cornish Coaster; plus the Tintagel Brewery pair of Castle Gold and Harbour Special (£2 a half). There's clearly a Cornish theme here with the open to view kitchen labelled the "Cornish Grill". I saw a chalkboard on the back wall advertising half a dozen starters and four main courses. The latter included ox cheeks with mash etc at £13.50, and onglet steak, peppercorn sauce, chips and salad at £13.95.

This must have been an absolutely magnificent pub once, if the exterior, with its large frontage and polished granite pillars is anything to go by. But the inside's been completely trashed (the perpetrators would say modernised) over the years. It's obviously massive inside; the end room, labelled the "Saloon Lounge" has a large skylight, suggesting that it might have been used for snooker at some stage. The whole place is furnished with normal tables and chairs plus some sofas, with more than its fair share of those small, hard, recycled school or church chairs. Obviously there's some exposed brickwork, and too much use of indigo paintwork for my liking.

When I was in on Saturday afternoon the place was very busy, and thus very noisy, with family groups. It felt as if I had blundered into a Nando's. The only thing I can think of to recommend this pub is the superb Tintagel Harbour Special. But maybe others like these raucus pubs, and good luck to them I say. This one is cetainly doing something right judging by the numbers in on Saturday afternoon, and the tables that were reserved for later in the day.
