new pub in Stoke Newington called the Dissenting Academy:
Throughout history, Newington Green has been a destination for free-thinking people who have challenged conventional ideas and changed society. The most famous dissenting academy in the land was located here, and it is from this exceptional establishment that our pub takes its name and its desire to challenge conformity. Today’s Dissenting Academy celebrates purveyors of non-conformist art and music, and provides an inspirational environment in which to enjoy good beer, tasty food and brilliant company.
I think they’ve repealed most of the conformity laws now, but good luck with your pub anyway. Hardest business in the world.
