The Chesham Arms is a popular pub in Homerton that was saved from being turned into a block of flats in a grass roots campaign led by locals.
Residents and the Campaign for Real Ale, supported by Hackney Council, fought to get the pub reopened and it was listed as an 'asset of community value' after a landmark legal ruling in 2013.
It subsequently reopened as a child-friendly, dog-friendly establishment with a big garden and two open fires, which make the pub a big draw all year round.
The exterior of this handsome building looks almost like it could be in the countryside, lit by old fashioned lamp posts that give it a bygone era feel.
The Chesham is a traditional boozer in that it has a focus on good beers, ales and lagers, rather than food, but customers are encouraged to order in a pizza if they get peckish.
