A short walk from Homerton station, this grand old building has a striking facade with a high pediment bearing the pub's name and a stonework depiction of the eponymous couple set below. A corner entrance takes you into a terrazzo floored bar area with a central bar now essentially serving a single U-shaped room, although a nice bit of leaded window partitioning has been retained to help give the feel of two different front bars. The servery has a dark wood tongue and groove counter with a beautiful stained glass canopy and bar back. There is a bare boarded raised seating area along the left hand wall where some comfy armchairs have been arranged alongside button backed banquettes, all under some fine dark wood panelling. Further back there is a set of battered old chairs around a dark fireplace with a TV screen above, albeit turned off throughout the course of our stay. The ceiling is a talking point in its own right, sporting an elaborate gilded design that really catches the eye. The right hand side of the bar is a little simpler, with standard seating around a nice tiled fireplace in an area decorated with old black and white photos, large mirrors down one side and a pool table to the rear. A back room can be found down in the far left corner of the pub, which is less spectacular than the bar area. Here the room has exposed floorboards and a good deal of banquette and standard seating, including a raised section to the rear near a door for the beer garden. The (literal) centrepiece is an unusual L-shaped pool table which is probably best played after a few pints and there was another TV screen back here, also turned off with indie tunes playing quietly in the background.
The pub seems to be committed to providing a range of ales predominantly from London based brewers, as borne out by the options on this visit which were Hackney Best and American Pale Ale, ELB Jamboree and Pale Ale, Five Points Railway Porter and Bad Co Whiter Shade of Pale. I gave the Porter a try and it was in very good shape and went down a treat. The barman was a friendly chap and chatted about local breweries and gave me an unprompted taster of one of the other beers.
This is a lovely old pub that, despite some hasty remodelling in the past, is well presented and able to convey a sense of its history and former layout. I enjoyed poking around here and thought the place had enough going for it to reward repeat visits. If you're after some well kept local beer in an attractive and friendly setting, you could do a lot worse than this pub which is a must-do on any Hackney/Homerton crawl.

Very well described below, I found this pub welcoming, convivial and pleasant, even though it felt a bit schizophrenic, probably a result of being 2 premises knocked into one without being properly finished. Beers on the 6 handpumps when we visited are as listed by Mr Fastard, below. I had the Whiter Shade of Pale which was in excellent condition and slipped down just a little too easily, vindication of the pub's GBG entry. Highly recommended for inclusion in a crawl.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Adam & Eve

Handsome building with a date of 1915 on the finely detailed faced, with a renovated interior still featuring quite a few items of historical interest. Still partly divided, the 'U'-shaped bar has a raised are to one side, and there is also another large room (with the 'L'-shaped pool table) to the rear. Six handpumps on the counter, mostly offering beers from East London Brewing but I opted for the Bad Co Whiter Shade of Pale (only 3.2%, but had surprising flavour for that strength, £4.00). Beat my expectations, so worth seeking out.
