“The Kenton is a jewel in Hackney’s crown and the surprises don’t stop with the location in which it’s found, but carry on pleasantly within” 

“North of Victoria Park and on the way to Dalston you'll find The Kenton, a transformed boozer that has been turned from football supporters' watering hole to DJ pub with urban artwork and gallery space” 

“...we feel the formula here, suits the area well and with a bit more custom, the Kenton could be a real winner”

“Best pub in Homerton, which isn't that much of a boast...”

“The best thing about this pub? It's not rammed with hipsters like all the other pubs within walking distance. I think it's just become my new local :D”

“There's something really right about the atmosphere in here...”

“Great pub next to spacious Victoria Park that gives treats to dogs when they arrive plus of course water...”

“The refurbished bar boasts an eclectic mix of vintage and antique furniture housed in a comfortable setting..”
