37 aixetes de pur plaer! Per tornar-se boig. Ambient molt “cool”, local de moda. Pel meu gust una mica massa “pijo” però la selecció fa que te’n oblidis. Molt recomenable.

Good selection, but beers on keg are much too cold. The same applies to bottles from fridges. Why should I wait half an hour for a Stone Ruination IPA to arrive at a drinkable temperature? The guys behind the bar are very helpful, though. Anyway, second place in London after Kernel.

Maybe the only one I could visit with enough time, good draft beers and a very good selection of beers. I was really surpised because I did’nt expect this in England.

Great place. Has lots of beers on tap and the variety was good, had lots of bottles too but didn’t get to those. Bar staff were helpful in giving us recommendations and samples as we were unfamiliar with a lot of the small brewers. Prices seemed reasonable (but I am from Australia so all UK beer seems cheap). The place is full of suits and there was one group that was loud and annoying but most people there were just enjoying the beer so the atmosphere was fine.

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 didn’t have any, and rightly so as it shouldn’t 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 !

The Craft is an amazing place on all accounts. It walks the line between new, hip and classic pub in a way that no other place in London can pull off. Service has been nothing less than excellent the few times I have been in, whether crowded not as crowded. With almost 350 beers available and an ever rotating draft/cask selection it’s never an issue finding the beer you want. While it is a bit pricy, we are in the center of London and we are talking about some of the best beers in the Friggin’ WORLD!! This s not the best "NEW" pub in London. . . It is the BEST PUB in London. Full Stop!

I am guessing i was unlucky. What ruined the visit for me were the people almost screaming at the next table.. really really loud and crowded. The beer selection though was insane! I also tried the food which was really not of my liking :S - Will go there again next time i go to London and hopefully have different view on the atmosphere because the beer selection is just too good.

This will become a must do on the London scene very quickly. Interior has been well done out. Plenty of beers on handpull, tap and in bottle. Good place to come in an area that was lacking a bit for decent pubs.

Nice place, could see it getting very crowded though. Very concerted effort to get a great and varied selection. Coming form the USA, was very happy to see this place.
