EXPERT REVIEWS

Olive Magazine - The non-profit brewery is connected to the local church, and there are plenty of ecclesiastical touches – 250-year old pews line the walls, a ceiling of blonde wood beams echoes that of a contemporary church, and a striking stained glass window-like front reflects the particularly approachable attitude of the pub. A bespoke piece of artwork was commissioned to capture the spirit of Hackney, with individual characters extracted and dotted around the menu, etched onto pint glasses and stitched onto uniforms of the Hackney-born bar staff. read more
Just Opened London - The whole space boasts an industrial design, with exposed brick, concrete floors and steel-framed windows, while a wooden structure on the ceiling creates a warmer ambiance. But the best part is outside, where you’ll find a large terrace with ample seating and magical festoon lights. read more
The Nudge - St John at Hackney brewery opened opposite… a church. That church is called St John at Hackney, and it’s located in Hackney. And now, mirroring its vaulted ceiling and expansive interior, is said brewery’s taproom, which the owners have filled by pressing pew seating against the walls and putting an altar-like metal bar at the rear. And to cap it all, there’s a large alfresco seating area with festoon lighting for when the sun dips below the horizon. read more
