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. Its 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.

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.
