Lady Marksman

About me

I am the Landlady of the Marksman Pub (@MarksmanPub just voted Best Sunday Roast, East London – TimeOut). In a previous incarnation, I worked in New Media & Technology as a Marketing Planner. I am a Yankee import from Silicon Valley, and have been living East since my warehouse-dwelling days in 2001. I am married to the “Guv” of The Marksman, who is really a designer. I am a home-educating mother to two landbabies (2 & 3 yrs) who have grown up in our pub and like to hang out around Columbia Road with our local pals. I like creative mindful people.

Why you love Hackney

I have been living East since my warehouse-dwelling days of 2001; buying an old boozer was a natural progression from that point (?!). I love the creative buzz of Hackney, quality East London espresso bars, Columbia Road Flower Market, Victoria Park, the mix of different walks of life, Regent's Canal, open studios, Kingsland Rd Vietnamese food, galleries, and street art.
