Best pizza anywhere

Pembury Pizza used to be a secret and now it's out. The Pembury may not look special from the outside, but the inside is a treat. And yes, there's a pool table.

This is a pub with excellent range of beers, and a great food menu. It also has bar billiards! Located on Pembury Circus in Hackney, this pub looks imposing from the outside, dominating the junction of several roads. Entering via the wide doors, there is a long bar with multiple tables laid out on bare wood floors and a traditional... More

Remember the pizza that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles used to eat? How floppy and cheesy and tomato-ey and basically amazing they looked? Well the Pembury Tavern serves those pizzas. And they are amazing.

If you're looking for great, large, affordable Pizza, look no further than the Pembury Tavern. It's large with big tables for all types, including families. Pizzas come in one size: large. They average at £8. Great choice of beer too.

The atmosphere in the pub is a little odd. It's quite bright and the decor, pool table and pub bowls make the place feel a bit like a student union. To me this is a plus but maybe not to everyone's tastes. There's a tremendous Italian kitchen in the pub- this along with the array of local good booze is... More

I was recently stay in Hackney for a few weeks and I made this place my home. Warm, cozy, friendly staff, good food and pretty vibrant. I did not have the pizza, sticking to mostly appetizers, but they looked tempting. If you are in Hackney, it's a great place kick back.

The Pembury Tavern seems to sit on the brink of having great potential but is caught somewhere between old and new Hackneys without a foot firmly rooted in either. The exterior and prominent corner site go firmly in its favour. The adventurous pizza / Mediterranean based menu also raises its offer above the crisps, nuts and pickled eggs of yore.... More
