2. While I’m There

Can I bring children?


You are welcome to bring children, we ask that all children leave site by sunset (currently around 8pm). 


Please include all children that require their own seat (i.e. other than “babes in arms”) in your booking numbers.

We do not have any high chairs at present, however parents are very welcome to bring travel chairs. We do have a unisex baby change WC.


Is there accessible level access and accessible WC facilities?


Yes there is level access to the taproom from the street and to the seating areas, and to our indoor WC facilities, which include a specific accessible toilet.


What is the smoking policy?


Smoking is permitted only outside of the taproom.

Please note out of consideration for our neighbours, we cannot allow glassware outside and we may need to limit the number of people smoking at any one time.


Is there food?


Yes – we have food served by Hackney’s very own ACE Pizza, who serve the food at our existing public house The Pembury Tavern.  Find out more about ACE Pizza here.  Food is served from opening, with last orders for food available until one hour before closing.

We ask that only food bought from our own vendors is consumed on site.


Do you have a full range of drinks, and non-beer options?

Yes – alongside our full range of Five Points beers, we sell a choice of wine, prosecco, cider, a short spirits menu and a full range of soft and free from-alcohol drinks.


3. Covid-19

What Covid-safe policies do you have in place?


We will always ensure that we operate our venue in accordance with Government regulations that are in place at the time.  In particular;

– There will be hand sanitiser available upon entry and around the venue

– All tables will be thoroughly sanitised between bookings, and all touch points in the venue, for example door handles, will be regularly sanitised by our staff

– Food may be ordered from your seat and we are using an App and QR code system

We have conducted a Covid-19 risk assessment, and are constantly monitoring our policies and procedures. As and when Government guidelines change, we will ensure that we are up to date.


4. Investor Discounts

I am an existing Five Points investor, can I redeem my shareholder discount or free birthday pint?


Yes, absolutely! You may redeem your shareholder discount in the same way that you can at The Pembury Tavern or in our webstore. However, because we currently use an App for at-table service, you will need to enter a specific code for your investor discount tier.  This was sent to you at your registered email address, and you can get it again by emailing us at [email protected].  


As always, please bring a form of photo ID showing your date of birth within one week of attending, along with your shareholder card, to redeem your free birthday pint!


5. The Pembury Tavern

What about The Pembury Tavern?


We also own and operate Hackney’s legendary Pembury Tavern. The Pembury is currently open seven days a week!
