It's a large space, stretching back a fair way, and very little natural light is able to penetrate. The floor is wooden blocks arranged in pleasing zigzags — presumably recycled from elsewhere, since many of them bear parts of painted lines. Shelves hold old pottery, and vintage mirrors hang on the walls. The decor is unusually coherent for Antic, with many of the elements going together surprisingly well (this may in fact be a common feature of their more recently opened pubs).
Kake visited on a Friday afternoon in September 2019. Arriving at their opening time of 4pm, I was one of eight customers, and more arrived during the short time I was there. Music was playing, not too loud.
There were three real ales and one real cider on the handpumps: East London Brewery Eagle, Kirkstall Dissolution IPA, Volden Session, and Thatchers Stan's Cheddar Valley. A pint of lime and soda was 50p.
Food is limited to a series of pop-ups operating on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings only.
