Without doubt one of the best tap selections in Europe, with a nice mix of British and imported beers. Frist time i have seen Fyr & Flamme and Bestefar from Haandbryggeriet (or Haand as it was called) on tap outside of Norway (at half the price). As expected the place was busy on a friday night, but we were able to secure a couple of seats in the rather bland upstairs lounge.

Clearly a fantastic beer bar, with a range unparallelled in the UK. You could easily spend all day here. The only difficulty is knowing what to try first, second, third etc.

Il pi affollato dei pub londinesi da me visitati. Probabilmente un motivo c e sta nel fatto che la selezione di birre davvero ottima: oltre a ottime real ales inglesi spillate a pompa hanno anche una selezione di grandi successi internazionali come mikkeller, evil twin, southern thier. In pi diversi frigoriferi fanno da sfondo per soddisfare le esigenze anche dei pi incontentabili. Prezzi nella norma di londra,forse un po piccolo e lambiente ne risente soprattutto in orario di punta. Gentilissimi i ragazzi al banco.

Great selection of craft and handpumped beers. Loved the Mikkeller beers on tap, the stout I tried was amazing.

This is THE bar for beer lovers. I am fortunate in that I live literally 1 min away from the place and I cant get enough of the place. The staff are well informed about whats on sale and will assist in helping a punter choose a beer that suits their palate if not educated themselves on craft beers etc Much better than its previous incarnation the Clock House. CBC can get busy in the evening. Not over priced either as there are some reasonably priced beers but one can splurge if desired.. But hey when the beer is that good Im not complaining.

Great pub/beer bar, fairly centrally located in Clerkenwell. The street level bar is dominated by the huge bar, packed with taps and hand pumps, while there are a couple of smaller rooms with additional seating upstairs. Beer selection is awesome: 16 hand pumps with ever changing real ales from high class small brewers from across the UK, another 21 taps with keg beers from the likes of Mikkeller (and other Danes), Ngne , Stillwater, Southern Tier and lots of other high quality brewers. And of course, theres the bottled beer list ... quite pricey, but only top quality (and coming from Sweden, Im used to worse in terms of prices). Food: no meals, but some nibbles are available. The only draw-back would be the fact that it almost always seems to be packed with people (inside and outside), meaning you might have to wait to be served, even though service is friendly and efficient. Dont be surprised to meet other ratebeerians and fellow beer geeks. All in all, Tom and the crew are making a hell of a job here. Keep it up. Ill be back.

CBC is located in a great spot of Clerkenwell in central London. This is the younger sister of Cask Pub and Kitchen. The offerings on cask and keg are ridiculously good. The beer is always in great nick, these guys know how to handle their product. The bottle list is very good, not to CPKs standard, but probably the second best in London. Seating can be difficult to obtain if you show up on a Wednesday-Saturday evening. Their upstairs room can get really hot and stuffy. As the pubs located on a quiet street, many punters opt to drink outside. Prices are quite high, but Im happy to pay for the quality. Food options are minimal (scotch eggs, meat pies) and expensive, but good if youre willing to splurge.

Great selction of Britosh resl ales and European micros. Also some Cigar city and Sourhern tier on tap. A bit noisy but what can you expect with that selection?
