The Dove, Hackney
The bouncer woman threathened to watch me buy a drink as I wanted to use the toilet. And yes, do NOT go there for your birthday and better NEVER, as you're not even allowed to have a piece of your own birthday cake in there.
There are much better pubs around London Fields. This one is all about making money and ripping customers off!
24 Broadway Market, Hackney, London, E8 4QJ
From London Fields station exit right and then right again under the bridge to London Fields park. From there turn left and follow the path through the park down to Broadway Market (or walk around the park). Walk down Broadway Market and the pub will be on the left in a few minutes.
