This month we see Five Points Brewing Company open their brand new refurbished home in the heart of Hackney, London. The Pembury Tavern is situated just 100 yards from the brewery on the ‘five points junction’, ensuring the beer is as fresh as can be. The pub is finally opening its doors after a 5-week refurb and promises to offer drinkers an immense array of Five Points crafted beers and also a guest list of beers from around the U.K.

The opening and restoration of The Pembury Tavern comes after a successful crowdfunding campaign early this year, which saw Five Points Brewery achieve its target of £750,000 with over 1,500 investors supporting Five Point’s expansion campaign.

The tap room will showcase Five Points core range of beers including Five Points Pale, XPA, their craft Pils lager, Railway Porter, and Brick Field Brown. It will also feature a constantly changing selection of beers with over 20 draught taps as well as bottled and canned brews from the best UK independently owned breweries.  There will also be plenty of events to keep customers entertained from new beer launches, ‘meet the brewer’ and food and beer pairing sessions.

From serving outstanding beer, a delicious array of New York-Neapolitan pizzas expertly created for The Pembury Tavern will be served to hungry punters along with ‘The Pembury Tavern Roast Dinner’ with all the trimmings on Sundays.


Originally built in the 1860s, The Pembury Tavern is a landmark Hackney public house steeped in history. After being restored in 2006 following a fire, it has become a regular fixture in The Good Beer Guide, previously, under the ownership of Milton Brewery, and has been one of the key pubs to help bring back good beer to the area.

Ed Mason, Co-Founder and Managing Director of The Five Points Brewing Company said, “The Pembury Tavern has been a Hackney institution for one hundred and fifty years providing the local community with a place to relax, enjoy good company and have a great beer. We are extremely honoured to become the new custodians and excited to be able to showcase our beers. The opening of The Pembury Tavern is a landmark milestone in our Five Points’ journey”

The Five Points Brewery Company has taken a sensitive and considered approach to the design and restoration of the landmark public house ensuring it remains classic and timeless. Locals will be pleased to see that the loved bar billiards table will remain.

Speaking on the redesign Jo Hunter, interior designer at Hunter’s Daughter London, said “The design was influenced by two key factors; traditional pubs and the freshness and boldness of The Five Points identity.”

“Rather than replicate heavily embellished Victorian pubs, we opted for a more timeless approach, keeping things neat and simple. This has been coupled with influences from the bold no-nonsense identity of The Five Points Brewing. Strong colour-blocking, visual datums and stripped back modesty with an emphasis on the beer and the bar taking centre stage.”

The Opening hours will be:
4pm to 11pm Monday–Wednesday
4pm to 12am Thursday–Friday
12pm to 12am Saturday
12pm 11pm on Sunday
