Very good 8.0
Value, vibe and volume!
This is a pub with a very friendly team of staff, a good atmosphere and reasonable food. We enjoyed our stay here, although it is noisy at night (we were there at the weekend), and light sleepers should be aware that the hubbub of the bar travels upwards relatively unmuffled! It nonetheless represents good value for money.

Exceptional 10.0
lots of character - worth a stay
Well placed for the Hackney Empire with good beer, comfortable rooms and a great atmosphere. Menu has healthy and unhealthy extremes with little in between! Good breakfast and friendly staff

Fair 4.0
Style over Substance
Stayed at this small hotel in Feb 2019 for 1 night. Hotel rooms are above a pub. At check in I was told that “they had had a problem with their system” and they hadn’t got my pre-paid booking for a large family room. This booking had been confirmed by The lady explained that they did have a room, but it was noisy with an odd noise coming from the wall “Could I put up with this?” I was asked. “Err no. Not really”. “I can offer you a discount" "Err still No". "Ok” she said “let me see what I can do" She came back with keys to a room, and since she had not mentioned the noisy rook again I assumed that she had found a better room so I went up to the room. Only to find that it was, in fact, the noisy room. It was late, I was tired, and this was the only room available. So I stayed and had a horrible night. The room was like sleeping in the engine room of a ship. It was also stiflingly hot, although there was no heating on. There was no air conditioning. Opening the windows just made the noise issue worse. I planned to complain on check out the next morning. But in the morning there was NOONE from management available. So I left. Overall the hotel is not a 4 star. There are only steep steps to the rooms. The decor is very tired. The bar is a typical stripped back walls and shabby unmatched furniture. It was needlessly loud, with two competing sources of music. Food was ok but no better than Nandos. I would not go back to either pub or hotel
