I took some colleagues here earlier in the week, I had not been myself first, the place does have a weird feel, itís dark and cavernous. The tap selection is ok, no way enough. Didnít look finished. No way I would take anyone there again

Yeah, I called in last week for a couple of pints of Tiny Rebel after work. Strange kind of place, bit like a cave. Beer selection isnít good enough yet, I assume that they will expand it. More space than Euston Tap though. When it is more established Iíll revisit but Iím in no hurry to get back there.

Also, not sure if others experienced this, but I got zero phone reception in there, which was kind of annoying.

Itís a sign of the times that people are saying they donít have enough lines in there! I went on Friday and theyíve got ~15 keg lines and ~6 cask lines. How many do you need!?



Itís a slightly cavernous environment in there and it doesnít feel finished yet but otherwise I really liked it. Itís like the Euston Tap with somewhere to sit down.



I had a pint of Buxton Moor Top and a Moor Norí Hop; both were in excellent condition. Bar staff were friendly and appeared to be pretty knowledgeable - one was even drinking at the Craftís Birthday event the following day.

Thereís a place opening 5 mins from my house in sleepy south east London next month with 12 keg and 6 cask lines.

Itís going to take a TÝrst or Mikkeller & Friends whalez-laden launch to create much of a buzz in London at this stage of the game.

As someone who remembers the London beer scene 10-15 years ago - We have never had it so bloody good.

I remember going to the Holborn Whippet not too long after it had opened and thinking hmmm itís ok but I wonít be visiting here too often as x, y and z bars have a much better selection.

10-15 years ago Iíd have been all over the Whippet like a rash, ditto the likes of Pelt Trader and would even have gone sarf of the river for your new local no doubt!

Someone leaked a provisional tap list for Mikkeller SFís opening, when it was planned for the 4th July holiday weekend.

Cue people on BA moaning that itís a bit disappointing.

This is the food menu, which looks great.

True. But why does a place have to make ía buzzí to be good? If they keep good beer, are reasonably price and have the number of draft beers that The Pelt Trader does, thatís good enough for me. Iíd rather have 20 pubs with 15 beers each than 2 pubs with 50 beers each.

As a stand alone joint - the Pelt Trader is fine. As one of the Euston Tap chain - itís a dissapointment. I was hoping for bigger and better branch and what we got was bigger, slightly less poky and much less choice. I make no apologies for being dissappointed in that!



Just hope it can be developed but some of my work colleagues have been in (they go home via Cannon St) and they were told the purpose of the place was to service the city staff.



Shame!

Its actually not connected to The Tap group, neither is The Whippet for that matter. They also wont be putting any bottles, itíll be souly draught and they have no plans to add any more lines.
