Another of the new wave of "craft" beer bars striving for a cooler atmosphere than a traditional pub. Being in Shoreditch hipster territory, thatís not surprising. Iíve generally visited for specific events / launches or festivals - of which they have a fair few so I canít say with too much certainty what the choice is like at other times. From what Iíve seen youíll generally find some high quality beers here but often from the "usual suspects". Thatís not to say that there isnít plenty of good drinking to be had, but I suspect Iíll often be able to find the beers somewhere more convenient for me. So I guess itís more of an "if in the area" or for a specific event kind of place in my eyes

Always worth a look as the beer selection is tidy with selective cask and kegged micros, and extensive bottle selection. Great addition to the Shoreditch scene as thereís not much else by way of pubs, other than POS. Staff have always been on good form from my experience, and are generally knowledgeable about the beers they have on. I havenít eaten here before so canít comment on the food, but could do a little more by way of bar snacks. Always a good crowd and quite busy so they are doing things right. Well worth a visit if youíre in the area.

Nice place, great food, great ambiance, very decent beer lineup. There was also music during our visit (Saturday afternoon). They have a large bottle list, which seems to be their focus. Also four casks and about eight kegs. A few interesting beers (in bottle and draft) but mostly fairly common things. I tried four draft beers (two cask, two keg) and they all seemed to be in sub-optimal condition, which was kind of a bummer. Our food - eggs benedict royale - was excellent. All average value for London. The place itself is very nice, all seating, pleasant waitresses, large glass windows that allow you to look out on to the street. Worth a visit if youíre in East London.

Beer bar located in a very trendy spot of east London. The decorís pretty spartan, the lighting aggressive. When I visited they had 3 cask offerings (Hardknott, Gaddís, Darkstar), plus offerings from Magic Rock, Brodies, Brewdog, and a few others on draught. The bottle list was OK - Little Creatures, Bear Republic, a few Kernels were represented. The service was good, though the bar was so empty when I visited that the barlady was thrilled to see customers. While I didnít try the food, the menu looked ambitious, but seemed to lack bar snacks (chips or olives wouldíve been welcomed). The prices are on the higher side, even more expensive then CBC without as interesting a selection. Overall, Mason & Taylorís a nice place, but it not among the very best in London. The selection, while good, isnít world class.

This is a quirky modern beer-focused bar-restaurant located in the East End. Interior, music and staff all laid back and cool. On draft there is 8 keg and 4 cask (3 hand pull and 1 gravi-cask). The options included Brewdog, Brodies, Magic Rock, Thornbridge and Camden. Bottle list is impressive, about 45 in total, covering a wide variety of things, most notably Kernel! Each month or two they change the bottle menu. Guest draft and bottles also available and they do take away in both bottle and growler. Food was tasty and good value. Really impressed with this place and will definitely return.

Was here for a wedding party in the downstairs bar and was able to sample some fantastic bottles. Draft choice is very good too and staff very helpful and seemed quite knowledgeable. Like the way they rotate there menu every few months. This time they had Camden Hells Lager, Thornbridge Jaipur, Magic Rock High Wire and Brooklyn Lager as their permanent kegs. Few guests too. Prices are maybe a touch high, but this is London in 2011 so has to be expected and it is worth paying for quality. Clientele were young and trendy and design was quite nice. I will definitely be going back.

Something else than the stylish place I had expected. Looks like a quite ordinary cafť with a few interesting ales on cask (three) and keg (eight). Their range of quite exciting bottled beers (about 40) are better than most of the pubs in London. My friend labelled the place as shabby modern. The atmosphere and interior design were perhaps not that appealing, but I found the beer quality in good condition, had decent Sunday food (Roasted Loin of Old Spot Pork with creamed Leeks), and was served by a friendly staff (visited on 31. July 2011).

Great beer bar on Bethnal Green Road, with an emphasis on local beer. They also do food, but I havenít tried it yet.
