This new pub is christened after the building’s former occupants (a dance school in the late 30s) and offers locals a vintage-style hangout and restaurant with a menu that’s as intriguing as its name. There’s clearly a southern US influence where the food is concerned, with cornbread, oysters, pig skins and whole crab available and this will appeal to curious Londoners or expats after a taste of home. Kudos to the chef for serving up a pretty authentic, Louisiana-style crab boil. Equipped with gloves, crackers and plenty of napkins, it’s a flavoursome slap-up of of roast corn, potatoes and stew with a bread roll on the side. We followed this up with the moreish oreo and peanut butter ice cream sandwich, which is worth the trip to Farr’s alone. The eats are reasonably priced too, but to check out what else the menu has to offer, visit: www.farrsschoolofdancing.com. See our pics from a recent visit below! ocated in the centre of Dalston and only a stones throw from Dalston Junction Station, Farr’s School of Dancing is a public house at the heart of the local community. Taking its name from a dance school that occupied
the building in the late 30s, Farr’s is a lavish public house with a nostalgic vintage feel. Heavily driven by locally brewed and sourced beverages, Farr’s strives to offer a superb selection of craft beer and ale, and with the imminent arrival of our upstairs kitchen and dining area, a carefully thought out dining and snacking menu. With its high ceilings, wooden floors and vintage décor, Farr’s is a fantastic food and drink destination that offers a friendly smile and exceptional service.
