A striking ,large street corner pub with an attractive exterior ,a corner cupola and a fine side entrance.The large window frames are original and pleasing. Inside there has been a modern makeover with the High Street frontage now a set for dining area.The long bar extends along the building with an open kitchen by the dining area.The bar has exposed brickwork and lots of bar stools while beyond is a large section below a skylight with a reaised section at the far end and a small area with a table football machine near to the loo entrances.Tables and chairs here are trad,scrubbed pine popular.There is a downstairs gig veunue called The Waiting Room.
Pub food is not cheap with a median main of £18 and Pie of the Week £21.50 but food doesn't dominate the drinking areas.Screens will offer 6 Nations Rugby but they were off during my Friday afternnon trip.Decent muzak at sensible volume.

On entry you see two large keg gantries and there is a very good selection of guest kegs noted on a chalk board from brewers such as North Brewing,Marble,East London, and my Burnt Mill Beyond the Firs was pleasant.However on sitting down I noticed two handpumps ,one operational, that were somewhat obscured near the top end by a food special sign.On inspecting Marble Brick by Brick was offered, a red ale in superb NBSS 4.5 condition,very reasonable at £2.85 the half.It proved to be beer of the N16 crawl and I would recommend a visit for that alone.It's a decent pub,slightly hipsterish but one I would return to in order to check out the cask option.

Was in yesterday but primarily for a late Sunday lunch and did not specifically come here for a beer, which is actually a good thing because, if it was more restaurant than pub on my previous visit, then I would say it is a full on restaurant now. The hand pumps have completely disappeared from the bar which is now dominated by the two remaining chrome keg tap fitments, and the open kitchen at the Stamford Hill end now dominates that end, and every table in the place is laid for dining. The only spot that wasn’t from what I could see was one remaining sole settee set up in the window section of the saloon lounge at the far Church Street end. There are a few modern craft beer options on the keg taps, but most of them are standard options and I can’t even be kind enough to say that this place is now focussed on decent craft because it wasn’t.
The Sunday lunch was very good and my pint of Brixton Pale ale that went with it was decent enough when it had thawed a bit, but as a pub to just sit in with a decent pint then you can put a line through this one.

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.
