The Hemingway – Hackney


I think it would be hard to find a better pub than the Hemingway. First and foremost they totally understand the concept of background music. They generally play 1920′s jazz – it’s perfect, totally atmospheric but not intrusive. They have taken a beautiful old building and given it a very stylish hunter’s lodge theme, literally covering every wall with taxidermy. The good thing is, despite the resurgence of taxidermy these days, they have managed to bypass looking ‘trendy’ and have decided on a much more traditional theme, more Scottish Highlands than Shoreditch. The food is excellent – creative gastro pub stuff, not too expensive – and the bar is well stocked with plenty for the connoisseur. The guys who own the Hemingway have worked in upmarket bars for years and have a great reputation among their peers. If you need somewhere to read the paper, have a pint, have dinner with your mother or a group of friends or a place for New Year there isn’t a better place and you’ll love the bathrooms…
