Business Overview

The Coach & Horses specialises in creating a warm and welcome setting to relax and unwind. Dedicated to delivering a wide range of Fine wines, Great food and the best of real ales

Originally a coach house (a small building for housing coaches, carriages and other vehicles) dating back to the 1700′s, it is one of the oldest remaining public houses in the borough of Hackney which was formerly in the county of Middlesex.

The population at the time of the 1801 census was slightly under 2,000, an outbreak of smallpox at the end of the century ravaged Stoke Newington, affecting the prosperity of the area and causing people to flee elsewhere.

With a regular horse bus service into Central London, Stoke Newington started to grow. It’s hard to imagine but I guess you could say the original bus stop was right here at the Coach and Horses, beer in hand – how things have changed, it beats waiting for the 149 in the pouring rain!

So the years have gone by, the Coach and Horses has passed through many hands, had many different personalities, seen many things, so many different stories cold be told – if only this dear old pub could talk.

Nice atmosphere and good thai food
The Coach and Horses is an unassuming but welcoming pub that serves great thai food and good beer (black sheep and tribute on tap last time I went). They've started showing football on the big screen which is not necessarily good news IMHO, but overall it has a nice low key, relaxed feel.

Friendly boozer with limited but good real ale on tap (Bombardier and Black Sheep), and solid inexpensive Thai Food. The spicy beef salad is especially good. The Sunday roasts are satisfying and tasty, with the service quick, accurate and unassuming. The place is nothing spectacular but pleasant and comfortable.

Giddy up
This used to be a real dive but now it's a really good place to drink. It looks great, the decor has gold and mirrors and low watt light bulbs like a turn of the century gin palace. There's a nice atmosphere as the new decor has brought in a better class of patron, rather than the louts and tramps that used to inhabit the place. In the summer the tables outside make it the Stoke Newington High Street's coolest place to be seen. They show sport and have a fantastic selection of real ale and its music is beyond that of any local rival. If only more pubs were like this!

Probably the best old-fashioned boozer/sports pub/Thai restaurant combination in Stokey. Granted, I'm fairly sure it's the only old-fashioned Thai food sports pub in Stokey, but there you go.

As far as the pub basics go, there's nothing special about it, with standard beers and service that's geared towards the regulars but generally pretty welcoming. The screens are usually tuned to sport of some kind, but often accompanied by an intriguingly eclectic pop/rock jukebox selection.

The thing that sets it apart is the fact that, alongside all the traditional East End pub stuff, it does really rather good Thai food. If you fancy something a bit different to your pub lunch standards, but without having to head for an over-priced gastropub, you could do a lot worse.
