Very modern atmosphere but a bit too crowded at the peak hour. Very good selection of beers on tap and cask. An astonishing range of quality bottles to select from. Prices are decent to moderate high. Been here only once but was worth the visit.

My new favorite beer place in the world (yes, Volo, Cole’s and Blue Monk, I still love you) - incredible ambience, variety, quality - Alesmith bottles, FFS!!! - so many cask and keg taps, helpful staff - Tom is doing an amazing job, I felt at home right away - if you go to London, get your butt here ASAP - blew me away. I will be going back at least twice more during my current trip.

incredible selection, very kind and competent publican. nice ambiance. the only thing that I don’t like is that there is no kitchen in this pub.

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.

Visited on a Tuesday afternoon, just as it seemed a bit of a lunchtime crowd were on their way out, leaving myself and the Missus, and maybe half a dozen others. As expected, a great selection, although on this visit, the vast majority of the keg beers were all big hitters, as far as ABV went. Of the beer I had (three out of four being the aforementioned big hitters!), all were in faultless nick. Oversized glasses, too. Friendly, efficient staff. I do think the opportunity to buy beer in third of a pint measures, would be an improvement, but nevertheless, I very much enjoyed my first CBCo visit.

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!
