The CASK Pub and Kitchen stands on a street corner about 10 minutes walk from Victoria and perhaps 5 minutes from Pimlico tube stations. It has a modern feel – more a bar than a pub, with light olive green walls and a cream ceiling, tea lights in red glass holders on the tables and a fixed bench with scatter cushions along most of the walls. It’s generally light and airy although there is one cosy area behind the door where there are no windows and some clutter has started to appear in the form of a frieze of beer mats. There’s also an impressive world map showing topography and country names displayed on one wall like a pull down projector screen.
On my last visit, a lovely spring Friday evening (13 May), to celebrate Jackie’s birthday it was very crowded and noisy both inside and out but we had reserved tables along one wall so there was no shortage of seats for our party. It was also very hot as the heating was blasting out, completely unnecessarily, from under the benches. That said, the beer selection was as good as ever. I had Mikkeller Beer Hop Breakfast, Struise Black Albert (laid on specially for the birthday girl I think), Alvinne Kerasus and a few other excellent beers, all on tap and served by knowledgeable and friendly staff. The blackboard on the wall says that the CASK has “London’s largest and finest collection of beer” and this may well be true although, as others have noted, it’s not the place to go if you’re on a tight budget.
We didn’t eat on this occasion but good hearty food with a modern twist is available most lunchtimes and in the evening until 2130 or 2200. There are also monthly “meet the brewer” evenings, which I haven’t attended although I’ve heard from friends who have that they’re worth the effort. Upcoming events are Revelation Cat (21 June), Odell (20 July ) and Kernel (1 August).

I was lucky enough to be staying just around the corner from this gem. I was stoked to find Thornbridge and Dark Star available on hand pump, and from what I hear are conditioned extremely well. The food menu looked great but didn’t order this time. There also appears to be an extensive bottle list as well. Cozy place to have a good drink and chat, look forward to getting back here again. June Update - Now stocking 100+ bottles of fantastic American micros and plenty of German and Belgian beers as well. Casks rotate constantly and there is always something exciting on. Truely remarkable London real ale pub.

My regular post work boozer since it opened under it’s present guise circa Sep ’09 (previously the Pimlico Tram).
10 cask ales, 12 keg taps and 4 or more hundred bottles with many harder to get US and Scandatlantic (particularly Mikkeller) offerings.
Was in here just 4 hours ago and had cask ales from Dark Star, Fyne, Ilkley and keg offerings from Mikkeller (7 or 8 single hop varietis) and Against the Grain.
Can get pretty packed after 5pm on a weekday evening and often doesn’t thin till 9 !
Food is decent enough but could be better in the service sense . . . on more than one occasion my order has vanished into the ether and I’ve had to go back and re-order and/or put up with food that is a little too cold!
It’s all about the beer however and the staff are fairly knowledgeable and if your particular server isn’t, there’ll be someone at hand who is !

One of my favorite London pubs. The tap/cask selection is great. The best beer I’ve had herewas the BrewDog I Hardcore You. Awesome. There is a huge bottle list but these beers tend to be on the pricey side. The draught stuff is reasonably priced, though. The food looks good and is also a bit pricey; I haven’t had any. A very clean, sleek bar with lots of tables inside and a few out. Overall a great place to get some good beers.

Visited here on Saturday 13th November 2010 with Loz. I thoroughly enjoyed this place form the very decent cask selection through to the incredible bottled beer range and then onto the very friendly staff. We had a couple in here, a great Dark Star Green Hopped IPA and the Moor Illusion along with Crouch Vale Wild Hop and Brouwerij Ij’ Zatte all in great nick. The bottled beer selection was very impressive, however the prices were not so , the £29 for a Westy 12 (YIKES!) but hey-ho the cask and Keg stuff would offer more than enough choice for the average punter with just an occasional splurge on some fancy bottle maybe. Huge Mikkeller selection was very tempting. The staff were very friendly particularly Joachim a young Swedish guy who offered me a number of different tasters, he came and chatted to me and Loz for a while and was such a lovely chap, really enthusiastic and keen to learn more. I think this is more of a bar than a pub, but it’s got a nice feel about it and I will definately come here again at some point in the near future.

Nice, pretty "modern" pub with a great range of beers and an impressive number of refrigerators, all filled with attractive bottles. All beers I sampled there (from the tap only) were in good condition. Really worth a detour!

Big inside, dark with candles in the evening. Quite chill atmosphere, though not pretty. Nice range on keg, casks were mostly off on Sunday. Tons of bottles, though I wasn’t even really looking. Good place.

Selection is absolutely great, both bottles and casks/taps. There’s not much new to say. Interior is quite plain and the place gets noisy when it’s packed. Exports are rather pricey. Service was excellent. And toilets just disgusting.

the ONLY place in London worth a dam, Craft sister bar is supposedly good as well. Had 12 micro casks, all that I tried we’re excellent. Huge cellar with tons of mikkeller and harder to find American beers like Anchorage and Cigar City.

Easily the pub with the best selection of craft beer in London (every time I go there’s a new fridge been installed!). The fact that it’s only a 15 minute walk from my work is both a blessing (for trying new beers) and a curse (for my bank balance). The cask and keg collection is a forever changing carousel of quality craft beer selection (all though I would like to see some Lambic on). The bottle list is epic (lots of craft American, Belgian, British and Scandinavian brews) and there is always something new being added, although you will pay for it! They have a lot of meet-the-brewer nights and beer launches. The staff are attentive and fairly knowledgeable. A slight negative is the food - its ok, but I wouldn’t go out my way to eat there. One of the best places in the UK for beer lovers.
