125 Church Street

Soon to be a pizza joint… just what was missing from Stoke Newington!

London N16 0UD
Phone: +44 207 9239256

Bar A Bar
133-135 Stoke Newington Road

Basement bar that’s apparently so cool everybody thinks it’s in Dalston. We haven’t been yet.

Barden’s Boudoir
36 Stoke Newington Road
London N16 7XJ
Phone: +44 207 2499557
We used to love the downstairs venue, which is now The Nest. The Gypsy Hotel nights were the best nights in London at the time, and now The Nest is a nondescript electronic oompa venue. What’s left is a nice cafe & bar upstairs.

Not sure if this still exists actually… was boarded up last time I went past, but rumour has it that it’s open sometimes. Zombie Pub maybe? If anyone has more info, please let us know!

204 Stoke Newington High Street
London N16 7HU
Phone: +442072542970

The Lacy Nook
8 Cazenove Road

New pub-ish venue where Blush used to be… all I’ve seen so far looks pretty damn good, will need to visit soon!

Phone: +442073597229

The Rochester Castle
145 Stoke Newington High Street
London N16 0NY
Phone: +442072496016
The Rochester has a history (apparently the Sex Pistols played here in the 70s) but now it’s a Wetherspoons. Cheap booze, old men and the smell of urine… an acquired taste.

The Rose & Crown
199 Stoke Newington Church Street
London N16 9ES
Phone: +442072547497

The Royal Sovereign
64 Northwold Road
London E5 8RL
Phone: +442088062449
The Sov is a bit off the beaten track but offers the occasional interesting gig, BBQ or party.

Ryan’s Bar
181 Stoke Newington Church Street
London N16 OUL
Phone: +442072757807
Ryan’s offers decent Thai food, a large beer garden, and good gigs in their slightly dingy basement.

The Shakespeare
57 Allen Road
London N16 8RY
Phone: +442072544190
A proper nice boozer down towards Newington Green, the Shakepeare has one of the best jukeboxes in Stokey.

The Waiting Room
175 Stoke Newington High Street (below the Three Crowns)
London N16 0LH
Phone: +442072415511

The Wheatsheaf
6 Windus Road
London N16 6UP
Mainly an old men’s pub, but a pretty damn good one! The Wheatsheaf offers darts, pool, and all the other important bits a pub should have.

The White Hart
69 Stoke Newington High Street
London N16 8EL
Phone: +442072546626
The White Hart offers by far the best beer garden in Stokey, a great green oasis for summer drinking that unfortunately closes at 9:30. Also in the summer you will find BBQs in the garden, and all year round traditional pub food is available. A good place to watch the football or play pool, and a convenient base for trips down to Dalston later at night.

Yucatan Bar
121 Stoke Newington Road
London N16 8BT
Phone: +442072546198


  1. Review: The Shakespeare is the soul of N16 and the reason why many people will never leave the neighbourhood. Never mind the jukebox, nothing has changed about this pub in the last 20 years (except maybe the prices). No food (other than crisps), but it does what a pub does best: a warm atmosphere, friendly regulars, great chat and no distractions. Oh, and a famously good pub quiz on Monday nights.

  2. Had a cracking time in the Lion the other night. Recently moved to the area.. and I must say, I LOVE CHURCH ST.

    had a good night in Bar A Bar but the people working the cloakroom are thieving &*#%~@. tried chasing them up and no luck, basically stay clear unless your a fellow &*#%~@, its not even like the night was amazing either. much better local alternatives.
