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 Ė 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. Itís 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. Thereís 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 Jackieís 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 ďLondonís largest and finest collection of beerĒ and this may well be true although, as others have noted, itís not the place to go if youíre on a tight budget.
We didnít 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 ďmeet the brewerĒ evenings, which I havenít attended although Iíve heard from friends who have that theyíre worth the effort. Upcoming events are Revelation Cat (21 June), Odell (20 July ) and Kernel (1 August).

One of my favorite London pubs. The tap/cask selection is great. The best beer Iíve 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 havenít 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.

My regular post work boozer since it opened under itís present guise circa Sep í09 (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 doesnít 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 Iíve had to go back and re-order and/or put up with food that is a little too cold!
Itís all about the beer however and the staff are fairly knowledgeable and if your particular server isnít, thereíll be someone at hand who is !

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 didnít 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.

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 Ijí 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 itís 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 wasnít even really looking. Good place.

Selection is absolutely great, both bottles and casks/taps. Thereís not much new to say. Interior is quite plain and the place gets noisy when itís 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 weíre excellent. Huge cellar with tons of mikkeller and harder to find American beers like Anchorage and Cigar City.

I was very much looking forward to visit the pub after having heard all the impressive rumours. When it comes to the changing range of real ale and good beer, being the main thing, I do not think I have seen anything better in London. 10 active hand pumps with interesting British ales, a wide range of Belgian and other beers on tap and a well filled fridge with bottles. The chargrilled Scottish Angus rib-eye steak with its peppercorn sauce were delicious, however, the sautť potatoes were far from fresh and had a vapid taste. The atmosphere was alright, all kind of people eating and drinking in a place that is more bar-like than a traditional British pub. There is also some seating on the pavement outside. With many people inside the sound level and resonance can be quite noisy at times. Helpful, attentive and friendly service. Yeah, Iím looking forward to my next visit in early October and have booked my hotel room in the neighbourhood (visited 15th and 16th July 2010).
