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 !

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.

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!

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.

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.

Cool new opening with a large selection of beers. Dull ambiance, service quite decent. I prefer cask and kitchen

Very nice and cosy pub in Londen. Very nice selection of beers. Very friendly people with good knowledge of their beers. Most of the beers are served from tap, around 30 beers from tap. Must visit when you’re in London.

Craft Beer Co. may well be the best beer destination in London at the moment. It is an easy to find corner bar close to the Farringdon tube station in Clerkenwell. It’s a little more upscale and smaller than its sister pub CASK. However, there’s a nice upstairs area if it gets too crowded in the main room. There is a huge Charrington’s framed mirror on the wall which adds a little to the decor. I visited at lunchtime during the week, and the clientele were middle-aged to older businessmen. It probably attracts a younger crowd in the evenings. The service was very good - friendly and knowledgeable. The selection was unrivaled anywhere in London. There were around 15 cask (mainly English microbreweries) and 20 regular taps, featuring the likes of Mikkeller, Dark Star, Thornbridge, Magic Rock, Manchester Marble, etc. There were also several US beers on tap, including 3 from Rogue. There is a good bottle selection in coolers behind the bar. The quality and condition of the beers was excellent - very clean and fresh tasting. Craft Beer Co. is world-class for trying different English beers, and a must visit when in London.
