Hand Of Glory

Description

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.

  • A word from the chef:

    Gourmet burgers, curly fries, really wild hot dogs, neon slaws and watermelon jelly ‘n’ ice cream. A kid’s party, to which grown-ups are invited! The REALLY WILD DOG, our specialty is a Hotdog built from a Frankfurter that’s handmade to our recipe in the wilds of the Yorkshire fells with a cross breed of wild boar and wild pig and is (to our knowledge) the first ever Iron Age pig Frankfurter!! It’s delicious. Eat a classic or try The Beer Dog, a classic Wild Dog frank poached in delicious JaguarShoes Collective Milk Lager. NEON SLAWS – Pink – Orange – Green, will give you a tangy burst of flavour, a vitamin kick and three neon flavours. WILD BURGER Just like a classic burger, but with added Iron Age pig bacon! Served with melted cheese, and our special recipe burger sauce, on a soft, toasted burger bun.

Hand of Glory - London Pub Review

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 at Hand of Glory; I had folklore interiors to cruise…
