Pub name Name Address Description
Anchor & Hope 15 High Hill Ferry Clapton E5 9HG One of Fuller’s smallest pubs, on the bank of the River Lea and dating from about 1850. Refurbished a couple of years ago, it has one bar with wood panelling and a dartboard at the rear, with a wood fire and bar at the front. Drinkers include wildlife enthusiasts and bird watchers, boaters and locals. Barbecues in summer, it is worth seeking out. Featured in 2017 film Anchor & Hope includes the landlord as an extra!
Clapton Hart 231 Lower Clapton Road Clapton E5 8EG This multi-roomed Antic pub is a real oasis. Eight handpumps serve a changing range of ales, mostly from small breweries. Staff are helpful, with tasters readily offered. The interior could be described as shabby chic, with an assortment of furniture and bric-a-brac. No TV in one room, though there is wi-fi. Wheelchair access is via a ramp that must be asked for.
Crooked Billet 84 Upper Clapton Road Clapton E5 9JP Refurbished in July 2013 retaining the wood panelling but now a single room. The 4-5 cask ale focus on local beers from breweries such as Redemption, Five Points and East London. Large garden with a number of comfortable seating alcoves. Taken over by Young’s October 2023 – beer focus may have changed.
Elderfield 57 Elderfield Road Clapton E5 0LF Very nice backstreet local which has evolved along with its neighbourhood. It was previously the Priory Tavern and then the Eclipse. Built in the 1860s, it was redone in 1935 and is on Camra’s Regional Inventory of Real Heritage Pubs because much of its interwar interior has survived, including a two-room layout, a circular ceiling feature with concealed lighting (which looks much more modern), wood panelling, bar-back and counter, fireplace. Plenty of weekly entertainments.
Princess Of Wales 146 Lea Bridge Road Clapton E5 9RB Large one bar pub broken into multiple areas with a mixture of seating including a cosy settee in front of a stove. There is outside seating by the side of the River Lea and the Lea Valley Walk. Pub is close to the Lea Valley Ice Centre .Now part of the Geronimo division of Young’s, this pub has gone more upmarket. The beer range varies but this usually includes something from Young’s . This was the one Young’s pub in the East End that did not revert to Whitbread.
Royal Sovereign 64 Northwold Road Clapton E5 8RL One-bar pub with collection of regulars’ ties cut whilst being worn. Open brickwork on most walls. Darts and pool. Children’s outdoor area and garden with fish pond and aviary. Snacks at all times.
Star By Hackney Downs 35 Queensdown Road Clapton E5 8NN Renamed from the Three Sisters and refurbished in 2013. They describe themselves as “showcase for Hackney’s talented creatives”. Sister pub to the Star of Kings Cross being operated by the Electric Star group.
