Keeping local pubs alive to fight social isolation
By Josh Clarke
Hackney Irish Social Club started as a hangout for a few friends who wanted to play records and have pints on a Thursday. We were welcomed into the Prince Edward in Homerton who offered to do a pot of curry for everyone who came along. The face of pubs in Hackney is changing rapidly, and with free curry, £3 beers, a decent pool table and friendly regulars the Prince Edward represents an old style of community pub that is almost dead in most parts of London. They throw customer appreciation parties all through the year, attracting loyal customers from all over London, offering free food, running pool competitions and attracting quality local DJ’s with years of experience playing parties and sound systems all over London. We want to support this and hope to use the Hackney Irish Social Club to spread the word about pubs like the Prince Edward. Battling increasing rents and competition from craft and gastropubs traditional boozers need greater traffic to survive.
