You'll find Hand of Glory perched on the crossroads between Amhurst Road and Shacklewell Lane, and within walking distance of the Hackney rail stations. Decked out with giant maypoles, wicker masks, brass icons and even featuring an encounter between a straw bear and a ghostly mare, this intimate pop-up bar is a project sponsored by the Shoreditch-based arts gurus at Jaguar Shoes. The venue holds archaic British folk culture at the very core of its identity, and it teams an assortment of quality teas and espressos with delightful countryside ciders, cask ales and a cocktail card that is altered according to the demands of the season.

Hand of Glory isn't excluslively about booze and art though, as Mark Edwards - founder of street food vendor Fleisch Mob - is on hand to deliver a traditionally British menu to combat guests' hunger. This endearing Hackney based pop-up is a must for art and cider lovers alike, with their rotating array of 'deadly ciders' coming courtesy of a collection of the UK's leading independent brewers. 

Make sure to check out Hand of Glory' sister venues, The Victoria,The Old Shoreditch Station, DreamBags JaguarShoes and recently opened RedYellowBlue

Hand of Glory - London Pub Review

Hubble, bubble, toil, burgers and trouble. With a penchant for Buffy and a dress code more affiliated with The Craft than, (okay, offers to buy me a black dungaress dress and chokers are now open) no one else was going to get their mitts on a review...

I discovered the pub through DMY and with its Wickerman theme I was sold immediately. It just looked like the ideal place to have my birthday do at, unfortunately they failed to mention that their kitchen is closed on Mondays when I booked a table though, nor does this seem to be mentioned anywhere on the website and we only found out when we turned up on the day which was VERY disappointing. Forcing us to go elsewhere in order to be able to have dinner! ninakristin visited Hand Of Glory on 25 Apr 2016

Bit out of the way for someone who doesn't live out east, but came here visiting a friend and it's such a cute unique little bar. Love the decor and cool interiors - their roast was absolutely amazing so deffo one for a Sunday (if you're in that neck of the woods)!

Form the same people behind the Jaguar Shoes in Shoreditch, The Hand of Glory has a very different vibe, more cosy and laid back. Lovely atmosphere and good music. A bit on the pricey side, but nothing one wouldn't expect from a hipster bar in East London.

The Hand of glory is a really lovely pub, I had a bunch of friends come for my birthday drinks. Good range of beers, cocktails and nice staff. Also not packed with a bunch of idiots out to just get drunk so good atmosphere and ambience. My only criticism would be that we were seated near the door which was open all evening and that got quite chilly. Also, only one of the girls loo's worked which meant there were often queues for the women loo. Also the women's loo could have been maintained a little better by staff, it got quite dirty and ran out of toilet roll. Carly visited Hand Of Glory on 11 Oct 2015

Really, really lovely pub. Absolutely loved the taxidermy and wiccan theme throughout. Bar staff are an absolute pleasure too and down for a chat so definitely go on a lazy Sunday! Try the cheeseburger, comes highly recommended and sorted a hangover like nothing else.

Living locally I've been during the day for a coffee with youngsters and in the eve with friends when there's a real buzz. The variety of beers and cider is immense and the food looks lovely (although I haven't sampled it yet). With it being on the doorstep I'm just disappointed its a pop up and hope it stays!
