Hi Dave I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your experience at the Hackney Pearl. I know that we were very busy on New Years Day, but that is no excuse for luke-warm food. However, mistakes do happen from time to time. It's a shame you didn't...More

The whole vibe of this place is quite good, intimate but not crowded. Very good tea and coffee at a very reasonable prize, the egg and toast breakfast is one of my fav.

My partner and I had planned to visit a place called 'Pestle' originally, but we received a phone call a couple of hours before to say that they weren't going to open for a couple more weeks. As we had little notice to find somewhere...More

What a terrible disappointment this was. I'd heard some good things about Hackney Pearl, and as we were in the area, I sought it out, for lunch. Being a weekend, it was fairly busy, but we were lucky to find a table. Waiting staff were...More

Hi I'm terribly sorry that you were so disappointed with your visit. I don't like too much ice in my soft drinks either. The mezze should indeed be bursting with flavour. If not summer then certainly seasonal goodness. It normally is but I'm sorry if...More

Hi Eleanor. I'm really glad that you enjoy the food and service at the Hackney Pearl. I'm sorry you find me intimidating. I can assure you that I'm not as scary as I look.
