    We booked a table inside by stage, you paid £1 extra pp for table booking. We arrived and were told everyone was moved outside as band would play outside because it was nice evening. Band played for 30 mins and then packed up. We were quite confused by this. We remained outside as we had ordered some food. Then we heard music through the speakers and after about 45 mins we realised the music was definitely live and we went inside to see the band playing inside. It was very cold and windy outside. All the tables were full inside. We were quite upset because we had booked to be inside and we’re placed outside and the band had played more inside than outside. I went to find a staff member to find out what had happened and Why we were left outside. The person at the door was helpful and apologetic and said he’d be more communicative and explanatory to new comers in future. He also directed me to the manager who I found and he was approachable to speak with. I explained our situation. I was told their idea was that they though considering it was a nice evening everyone would want to be outside. I understood this sentiment but then the weather did change and one may expect there would be an explanation the band is moving inside and those who booked inside can get first choice on tables. The manager was agreeable and wanted to resolve the matter and managed to find us a table and 6 chairs so we could enjoy the music from inside in the warmth. This really changed our experience. We left so happy, the music was exceptional. The service in general is good. The drinks are fine. The food unfortunately is nothing to write home about but it fills the gap and is at least not terrible. I’m really grateful the manager was willing to listen and change our experience. I will definitely be back and now that I know how it’s way work I would follow the band. Very cool, hip spot, great vibe!!

    Lovely unique riverside Hackney venue amidst greenery, calm river water with occasional boats and barges sailing by, some semi-industrial buildings and a railway bridge! A bustling yet tranquil urban oasis. Enjoyed ourselves having a late afternoon wholesome meal and then attending a live gig plus dj night. This space for art, music, dj’s, food kitchen etc made mainly with a concept of sustainability works really well. Its use of lots of natural and reclaimed/ recycled materials and green plantings is inspiring. A large crowd later in the evening appreciating some great sounds, fabulous food and drink provided a wonderful ambience.

    Booked a 6:30pm table through OpenTable to have food + drinks (in the Grow Bar + Kitchen). We were placed on a table on the floor right in front of a massive speaker system. Moved ourselves to a table upstairs, and went to the bar to place an order for food. By 8pm no food appeared. Asked a passing server who said he'd check, and then never bothered to return. Went up to the kitchen + it turns out they'd run out of curry earlier, the chef had told someone not to take more orders for it, but when it came to our order nobody know (when placing the order, or after we'd placed it) and also decided just not to cook the rest of the order. Don't bother going!

    Disappointing that we booked a table but was occupied by someone else at the time, and they didn't ask them to move from our table. We were placed on another table which was further away from the heaters as it was cold that night. Would've rated a much higher score had the staff just asked those people to move so we could sit at a warmer table.

    Pleasant experience overall, food was tasty and good value (although there was not a huge range of options). Couldn’t order drinks from the table which was a shame - had to pop to the bar. Great alternative choice of drinks from smaller breweries. Was fairly quiet for a Friday evening too. Definitely a better place to come for the drinks and music than for the food.

    Great place any time of the year, great live music, in particular every first Wednesday of the month! Rocking music from the London Based band “Ariwo”, where Jazz blends with modular electronic sounds and live jam with guest musicians well known in UK Jazz Scene 🔥🪘🥁🎺🔊🛸 Don’t forget to check every other days performances schedule for this unique place.

    Had lunch for 2 on the floating pontoon over the water, spectacular spot watching the kayakers and the river life come and go. Which would have been great in itself, fabulous actually, but the staff, and the manager especially, made it a truly memorable experience. She set the tone for the whole atmosphere, found places for people to finish up their drinks if the table was needed back, generally kept the vibe alive and people happy. Not sure there's anything else you can ask for! Outstanding.
