Nice atmosphere, a bit of a typical bar with a brighter attitude. Good selection of draft and cask. Friendly service that will explain the beers in depth, even if you donít ask. A few beers that you will only find here, brewed exclusively for them. Iíll be going back again, a few more times.Decently priced as well.

Top end british public bar, located a five minute walk from Chansery Lane tube-station. Stylish and functional, with an impressive number of taps. I counted 38, equally divided between casks and kegs. Some imports (De Molen, Mikkeller and more), and a fine range of brits. They had some very nice ones from Summer Wine, Revolution Brewing and Fyle Ales when I was there. Nice and knowledgeable staff. Pleasant atmosphere. I must when in London.

Great place. Beer is served in perfect condition with knowledgable and friendly staff. Selection is second to none with hard to get and one-off brews available. Simply a wonderful place to drink wonderful beer.

Went there on a thursday night with a group of friends as I thought it will be a good alternative for the usual pub in London and also because of the rating in this website. They liked it and I did too. The selection of beer on tap is very impressive, especially for the english draught beers. The selection of bottled beer is very good too, especially for Japanese beers, Mikkeller and Nogne. I had the Mikkeller Texas Ranger barrel aged for which I took great pleasure to share with my english friends who are used to normal beers. I was surprised to see the Westvleteren 12 on the list so of course i asked for one but they didnít have any, and rightly so as it shouldnít be sold in any other bar than in de vrede...The house lager made for the bar is very good too, a bit expensive but it is worth it. The staff was not available to give you advice or recommandation, but in their defense it was a very very busy evening. Overall a place where I will happily come back too on my next visit in the capital. I would like to see more bars like that in London !

Christian  (236) Odense, Denmark | October 14, 2011
The finest spot to drink beer for a Ratebeerian in London, and really, for any beer lover. Itís not the outrageous selection of Ratebeer-friendly beer from the best breweries in Britain and the rest of the world. Itís not the enthusiastic and knowledgable staff. Itís the combination of those qualities AND the beautiful site that makes this truly world class. Itís the most beautiful world class beer bar I have ever been to. And this in a city where the other top spots are unappealing at the least. Craft Beer Co is a place you wouldnít mind making your local, everyday pub

This place is awesome, great american beers on tap, awesome selection of cask ales. Best beer bar I went too in all of London and I went to 20 or so bars. They are doing something right and I wish them the best.

Thus far, The Craft Beer Co has proven itself everything a beer lover (note: not necessarily just a cask ale lover) could ask for. Tons of fantastic options, both cask and keg, at what I would consider reasonable prices for the area. But what makes the bar great, besides the great selection, and separates it from many other pubs in England, is that when you start rattling off names of beers or tasting notes you are looking for, the folks behind the bar donít give you a funny look and are generally quite knowledgeable and helpful. I find this just as important and welcome as the selection itself. Slightly embarrassingly, I have been to many of Ratebeerís top rated beer places, and this one will be on that list very soon.
