What can I say. I knew this place was going to be great before it opened. Now that it has, while itís head and shoulders above everywhere else in London, obviously, I have to say itís worthy of world class territory if you ask me. Thereís a great ambiance to the place. The original mirrored ceiling makes the bar just feel like a fantastic place to spend time. The beers are a constantly changing selection of stuff youíd be massively happy to see even one of them on in any bar. Here there are thirty something of them all on at once. Every single one of them served in absolutely perfect condition and at the right temperature. The staff know what they are doing and look after you superbly well. The punters are a great bunch too. You know the "good people drink good beer" thing? Thatís totally obvious in here. A great mix of seasoned veterans and the cool crowd. Everyone involved in this place deserves some sort of award. The Craft has set a standard for London that is going to be very very hard to beat.

Visited an afternoon Saturday last september: great selection of British beers, either cask or taps. Cosy and comfortable atmosphere. Unfortunately I tasted only a couple of beers due to my delay but Iíll come back next time.

This bar was a godsend on a wet, cold, winter Sunday in London. The excellent choice of local brews on tap and the help advice of the batman/woman in attendance kept me occupied all day.

Visited this CBC only a couple of Times as the Covent garden one is more convenient for me. Plenty of taps so there will undoubtedly be at least 2 or 3 new beers for everyone to try. Bottle selection looks good but Iíve never really been tempted to get one from this branch. Prices? So tricky for me to say. Iím used to London prices so Iíd rather pay here than £5 for a pint of pride elsewhere. Service was very good both times

Buisy, packed and noisy - perhaps I just got there too late in the evening. Pushy doorman, friendly barmaid. Selection was ok that day, prices seemed a bit steep. Did not stay for long, but might try again.

Leather Lane is one of my favourite places, a diverse range of lunchtime cafťs, shops and restaurants. My barbers and the holy grail of Central London craft ales. Itís packed and for good reason too.

What a pub. I cannot fault this place. The staff know their stuff, Tom knows more than you could ever imagine about beer. The selection is superb, a shedload of rare brews, a bar full of Mikkeller taps, a heap of casks. The house lager is unspeakably fantastic, the house ale is brilliant. Itís a bit pricey, but itís London. The selection on tap is unrivalled, youíll get what you pay for really in the bottle selection. The environment is superb, light and airy feel. I just canít deal with this place. Definitely the best place in London, definitely the best place in the UK. Thatís not a title Iím going to give lightly. Iíll just finish with a WOW. Blown away.

Was there in july obly a week or two after they opened. When we got there at 5 in the afternoon it was so insanely crowded, I guess there was about 50-60 people oot on the street as well as te actual bar being completely crammed with people. S it was so crowded I didnít get any impression of the over all service, the staff were busy seemed friendly. The kegs and cask list was impressive, but very similar to, say, CPK. The prices on cask ales were very reasonable, £3.40 a pint, where as the kegs were a bit on the high side. Bottle list was also impressive, lots of Amerian micros as well as classics like Mikkeller, NÝgne ō and what have you. The surroundings in the bar was a bit preppy and chique, but definitely a place I was spend an afternoon if it wasnít completely crowded. Will return next time Iím in London, hoping itís not so crowded.
