I like this place. Cocktails are good, food is good. It's an easy night for a local. They do a bottom less bloody mary brunch, haven't tried yet, but looking forward to it!

Popped in and had dinner - great beer, good steaks, quirky menu and atmosphere. Quite hipster and different to the run-of-the-mill. Friendly but busy staff. Would go back if in area again.

A really characterful little gem in Hackney. We've been here a couple of times for some truly amazing cocktails that are always served with a smile. We'll have to try the food next time!

Seriously. We went there today for dinner (a Saturday in May 2017) and the food was atrocious. Our waiter was very sweet, like a big bounding puppy, but really had no idea what he was talking about. I didn't have the heart to complain too...More
