One of, if not the best, stop in London especially if you want a break from cask ales. While it does not have the feel of a locals pub the beer selection and service put this among the best bars that I visited in all of England. From British brewers trying their hands at American styles to American breweries on tap it is hard to come away from here disappointed. Prices were a bit expensive but in line with everything else in London. It should also be relatively easy to reach from public transportation. Make it a point to stop in here and let the locals know - I am sure that folks like chriso and Leighton would be more than willing to meet face to face.

Surely one of the best selections in London; friendly and knowledgeable staff; just lacking a bit the typical british "pub-feeling". Anyway: highly recommended!

Visited many times - and will be back next time in London. Absolutely one of my favorite beer-spots to visit, whenever I am in London. Lovely 2 storage cornerpub, rather easy to get to from almost everywhere in London ( or that´s what I feel.. ). Even though it´s a spacy pub, it can be rather crowded at times. Beers in good condition, superfriendly staff, that´s know theit beer histrory. Cosy atmophere, you really feels beerlovers around you. Lovely ceilling of mirrors, I think a lot of people have taken pictures of it!!!.. They do from times to times have like meet the brewer / brewery events.. They have a few bar snacks, but you can´t eat here. See you next time in London :-)

Pretty small pub, but a lot of beers on draught and a lot of good beers on bottle! Nice friendly atmosphere, very helpfull, kind and knowledgable staff. Must visit when in London!

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.

Been there on a Saturday early afternoon, which probably helped avoid the biggest crowd. Lots of seats available upstairs. The main room is just a spacious area in front of the counter and a few small tables at corners. Altough the forniture is typical British pub, the armosphere wasn’t very cozy. Bartenders were smiling and friendly, which is always appreciated. Selection on tap is wide with good English offerings on cask as well. Bottle list is deep and interesting, with many unique Danish and US offerings. A few things from Italy and Scandinavia as well. Food choice is very narrow: either English pies or Scotch eggs. Good but a bit pricey. Cheaps by the bag of course as well, but lack of kichen can be an issue if wanting to eat a full meal alongside your drinks. Prices were quite steep for kegs, but in line with London craft beer stadards. Huge and varied bottle selection with many gems. Overall, nice place for selection, maybe lacking slightly is atmosphere.

Located a just short walk from the tube station. Nice tap selection of local, European and American craft beers. Massive amount of local casks as well, many of which from breweries I haven’t even heard of. Great quality focused, although a bit pricey bottle selection as well. Overall a must visit if you are in town.

Cozy place in two storries. Excellent and knowledeable service. Many casks and taps. At my visit they had lots of Pizza Port due to a recent tap takeover along with Oakham, Revolutions etc.
