Nearby

The EmpressLodged on the boundary of Victoria Park , The Empress is a popular venture from Tom and Ed Martin - the brothers behind Dockland's much-celebrated gastropub, The Gun . The pub's decor is neatly done and certainly aimed at diners rather than drinkers, with a pewter bar, Chesterfield banquettes and dark beech tables and chairs. The regularly changing, seasonal menu features quality produce from neighbourhood supplies and consists of excellent dishes such as smoked short rib of beef with black cabbage and girolles; wild mushroom risotto with crispy hens egg; and pork cheeks with chorizo cassoulet. Popular with locals and visitors alike, it's well worth the trek into Hackney's public transport blackspot.
