The Three Compasses


When most pubs in Hackney have turned into gastro pubs or micro breweries, The Three Compasses have managed to stick to their roots as a proper East End boozer. No pretension, just amazing local craft beers, the best burger pop-ups, friendly staff, party DJs on a weekend and major sports fixtures on projectors. They've created a home from home neighbourhood pub and won the Time Out award for Best Pub in Hackney E8. 

It's happy hour Monday-Friday 4-7pm, with buy one get 2nd half price on selected pints, 2 Aperol Spritz for just £10 and house spirits are doubles for the price of singles. Tuesdays are now home to a very popular Pub Quiz, brought to you by hosts named by Time Out as being in the top ten quiz masters in London! Weekend DJs create a great party atmosphere.
