This is a beautiful old building too. If it proves successful – given its positon it is a bit of a gamble but nevertheless – perhaps it wil help to convince the owner of the Chesham not to be so bone-headed and re-open the pub. benjamin 13 July 2013, 5:46 pm I reckon if this is a success, then we’ll see the Adam & Eve (another fine large pub building) get a revamp within a year. GavinRedknap 15 July 2013, 9:45 am The Adam and Eve is a fairly decent pub already, while the Jackdaw and Stump is as horrific as its name suggests but always seems fairly busy. Im wondering what’s happening now with the Cecil – the scaffolding has been taken down recently. Guess theyre just going to sit on the derelict building and hope for an unfortunate fire or two.. quitepeculiar 16 July 2013, 11:51 am Looking forward to seeing it open. The guys taking it over are expecting a late July or early August opening, from when they popped into The Five Points Brewing Company a couple of weeks ago. They seem to have an interest in local brewers, which is a good sign. Or at least the brewery I work for, which is still a good sign. 😀 leegoldup 20 July 2013, 5:29 pm Very excited about this. Especially if they are going to stock beer from local breweries. Perfect location for a beer on the way home from work for people living in Homerton and Lower Clapton. 22 July 2013, 9:42 pm Since I have lived in Hackney this place has always been a dead loss, so pleased to see it re-opening. Apart from the Cecil, which is sadly neglected, the area now has real choice. I lived here when the Cecil was open but never got to one of their reggae nights. I have been popping into Kino now and again, and find it pleasant but rather quiet. Last Friday my friend and I were the only customers after about 10. As a real ale fan (if one can still use the term) and not a ‘craft beer’ type I tend to revert to the hand-pump. Good luck to these ventures. I remain in admiration of the people who give these ventures a go. I remain concerned at the sustainability of these individualistic bars in these tough times. £4.50 a bottle at Kino, and one can pick up a beautiful bottle of Shephard Neame (£2.40) from the local shop near the closed Pub (Elephants Head). mattyc 4 September 2013, 10:39 am The Plough opens today!” ewebber 5 September 2013, 10:47 am Cool, will check them out soon kuxi 5 September 2013, 1:54 pm should we do twee8 here? kiwigirlhol 6 September 2013, 2:40 pm I was at the Plough last night and it is LOVELY! Looks amazing, it’s pretty big and there’s a great selection of beers. A bit pricey at £4.50 a pint for a craft lager but that’s the way all the new pubs in Hackney have been going I guess. Definitely recommend checking it out! Comments are now closed for this post.
