Overview
More
Taken over by siblings Richard Haines and Rosie Wesemann in late 2006, the pub has been revitalised - in a good way. We wanted the Scolt Head to remain a pub first and foremost, serving excellent food without becoming another soulless gastro bar, and we hope we've achieved it. Come and eat, drink, watch big screen sports, listen to live music, or join our pub quiz, all at The SCOLT HEAD. SWING DANCING Every Tuesday The Scolt Head kitchen excels in fresh and excellently sourced produce.The menu changes regularly, favouring small, independent suppliers and seasonal produce. Our meat comes from Blackwell Hadden, a rare breeds farmer in Essex, Select Meat and Poultry and McKanna of Theobolds Road. Vegetables from Lenards of Covent Garden and Cheese from Neals Yard. Fish from Ben's Fish is delivered every evening. Chutneys, jams, ice creams and sorbets are all made in our kitchen.

My colleague and I hosted a charity fundraiser pub quiz here. The Scolt Head was the perfect space! The staff was kind, and friendly, and helped us with the set up for our quiz. Tasty food, and fairly priced drinks! If you are in Dalston,...More

Corner location so the footprint of the place is triangular and it has a decent sized garden in front. Why do I like it? Because it's three pubs in one. The main area as you walk in has the air of a country boozer with...More

I visited this place last night as a friend was having a birthday do there. It's been two years since I was last there, and the place has really gone downhill, mainly in terms of a really bad attitude off the staff. For example, I...More
