Square Meal Review of Hand of Glory ?

With this once moribund boozer now under their wing, will the posse behind DreambagsJaguarshoes do for Shacklewell what that bar did for Shoreditch, turning a sow’s ear of a postcode into a hipster’s silk purse? Hopefully, the pagan trappings that inform Hand of Glory’s darkly gothic decor should ensure the gods smile favourably on the enterprise. Liquid offerings include small-batch London gins, cask-aged cocktails, ales from Hackney’s Crate and Five Points breweries, plus a trio of artisan ciders. House Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon is fairly priced and there’s organic claret to be had with food from pop-up chefs Fleischmob: expect ham hock and black pudding terrine, beetroot and dill-cured Loch Duart salmon or cheese and mushroom pie, followed by fruit crumbles and regional cheeses. The bar’s name refers to the ancient practice of severing thieves’ hands at the wrist. Gothic, indeed!
