Throughout history various cultures have adopted different perspectives on sin and punishment. In monotheistic religions for example, evildoers are said to suffer for eternity in Hell after death. In Roman mythology sinners were sent to Hades, with the most wicked punished in Tartarus, the 'Abode of the Accursed'. Later, 14th century Italian poet Dante conceptualised the 'Nine Circles of Hell', where each circle involved increasing levels of torment. Funnily enough, all these are the perfect description of the Jackdaw & Stump in Homerton. Indeed, if Dante were alive today, he might have considered including this pub within those Circles of Hell. Don't let appearances deceive you; architecturally, the outside is fairly pretty, displaying the original name - Spread Eagle - high above, with said eagle soaring above the main doors. But this is still a terrifying wander into the darkside of Hackney; not recommended for even the hardiest pub adventurers, this a leading contender for the worst pub on Fancyapint. Most locals steer clear, as should you. Consider yourselves duly warned.

If your worried about the gentryfication of Homerton, fear not. The Jackdaw and Stump is nasty.

When walking home on a late Friday or Saturday night its advisable to walk on the other side of the street so to avoid flying bottles.

To be recommended for wannabe gangsters, Begbie in 'Trainspotting' or Carling in 'Scum' . Otherwise RUN!
