Very nice selection of beers, good service and friendly staff. However, take caution when paying with foreign credit cards. They charged me in my local currency instead of GBP without asking. I wouldnít mind tipping you off for your good service, but in this case you are stealing from your customers. This is not okay at all.

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.

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 wasnít 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 havenít even heard of. Great quality focused, although a bit pricey bottle selection as well. Overall a must visit if you are in town.

A new beer bar in Central London. Small corner bar with traditional styling. Has a amazing selection of cask, keg & bottled beers. Similar to the Euston Tap but more spacious and better surroundings. Good service. The best beer venue in London.

tderoeck  (171) Gent, Belgium | April 10, 2012
Being the number one bar in London, this was the first place we headed to with our American friends who were in London at the same time. The place is like an empty box, a couple of tables and stools, a bar, a mirror, thatís it. No cosiness, no soul. It does have character. The character of spilled beer from last night that hasnít been cleaned up. Pretty dirty. Cask selection was ok, but not mind blowing, same with the tap list. Someone below states it has the best selection in London, I dare this guy to go to Euston tap. :p The waiters at the bar were friendly but not overly interested in a Belgian and an American beer geek visiting their bar. Oh well, their loss. Next pub, please!

The selection is probably the best you will find in London, but the staff are quite rude and not at all helpful. With the amount of beers they stock, it should be expected that people will ask questions. Worth checking out purely based on the selection but not a pub Iím eager to return to.

Nice place with a huge selection of beers from both the UK and abroad. They only serve microwave pies for food. Friendly service, but the place is quite popular, so dont expect time to chat about beers with them.

What a range! Gets busy, but you dont mind when you have so much to choose from. If you are in the city, worth a visit.
