We've been Hackney diners since the 1960s. The food usually stays the same quality and has been consistent over the years. This time, the onion brick had a different taste because of the oil it was fried in. The texture and cut of the onions...More

We had a large group here (30+) and everyone had a good time. The food was great, service friendly, and the toughest critics (i.e. the kids) gave it all a thumbs up (the good desserts might have helped).
