SquareMeal Review of The Dove Hackney

Half-a-dozen guest ales on tap and the stellar (no pun intended) selection of Belgian brews make Broadway Market boozer The Dove a beer-lover’s dream. It wears its enthusiasm lightly, however and never seems ‘theme-y’ (despite the inspired Leffe product placement painted on the ceiling), thus appealing equally to those with only a passing interest in rare fruit beers and obscure monastic creations. Ask a Dove regular what to eat here and you’ll be told ‘chips’. There’s a pint glass of them at pretty much every table, though you can also order from a full menu of globetrotting (if fairly ordinary) dishes of burgers and bangers with specials such as crab and smoked salmon risotto. The warren of rooms is rammed much of the time. Take a tip from a local and try weekday lunches for a chilled-out drinking session in a candlelit corner.

Have lived in the area for a couple of years and tired all the other pubs in the area. This one remains my absolute favourite. The atmosphere is alway buzzing. Weekday lunches though much quieter and a perfect place for an intimate lunch. Often see couples smooozzzing in the dimly lit corners. Love the burgers here and the beer selection well what can I say? I still haven't tried them all. They have games and chess and always an eclectic menu with some surprises. Often imitated never bettered I am afraid.

A nice pub, with some good drinks, but a little too busy generally for me. I like it a bit more relaxed, but that's just me.

This is one of the best places in town to have a beer. They have a great selection of beers, and lots on draught. It's a cool old building that has some lovely little features, but the toilets are strange…
