Gastro Jazzie Pub
The Hemingway is a great Hackney gastropub serving British meals made with locally-sourced ingredients.
They have taken a beautiful old building and given it a very stylish hunter’s lodge theme, literally covering every wall with taxidermy. 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.
Do yourself a favour and go to this place for a Sunday evening roast or for a stunning beef wellington to share.
