Perfectly described below. Something of a novelty factor and not something that lends itself to the adjective 'pub', but the ale selection is very agreeable and the place does grow on you. Worth visiting if in the area.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Farr's School of Dancing

The most ramshackle and superficially unappealing Antic pub I have visited, with the whole place looking like it has been recovered from a demolition site... However, the central bar counter is tidy enough and the overall effect does start to grow on you once you have a decent pint in hand, and Volden Session (£3.30) and Pale were amongst the real ales available from four of six handpumps.

Now all house owning parents whose kids excel in knocking lumps out of the décor should visit this pub as a salient lesson to what your home would end up looking like if you decided to do no DIY or repairs at all.
There’s Shabby Chic, then there’s downright shabby, and then there’s Antic’s Farr’s School of Dancing that looks like it’s under restoration. But stick a modern style bar serving area in the middle of the reclaimed skip furniture, chalk up a decent modern hipster attracting food menu with plenty of sharing options on one of the bare brick walls, and the modern youth will come.
Strangely I warmed to the place, although this might have been something to do with a fine glass of Dark Star Hop Head. The good news is that if I ever find myself in Dalston with my son and daughter I now have somewhere to take them where I won’t be ridiculed for my choice. The bad news is that I’m still looking for the equivalent for the wife.
