This place is awesome, great american beers on tap, awesome selection of cask ales. Best beer bar I went too in all of London and I went to 20 or so bars. They are doing something right and I wish them the best.

Thus far, The Craft Beer Co has proven itself everything a beer lover (note: not necessarily just a cask ale lover) could ask for. Tons of fantastic options, both cask and keg, at what I would consider reasonable prices for the area. But what makes the bar great, besides the great selection, and separates it from many other pubs in England, is that when you start rattling off names of beers or tasting notes you are looking for, the folks behind the bar don’t give you a funny look and are generally quite knowledgeable and helpful. I find this just as important and welcome as the selection itself. Slightly embarrassingly, I have been to many of Ratebeer’s top rated beer places, and this one will be on that list very soon.

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

Good quality and quantity of fresh brews. Rare beers for London are legion here. Helpful staff. Frequented by friendly beer lovers that know their pubs well. World class, indeed.

A welcome new addition to the burgeoning London beer scene, the Craft Beer Co. is an old fashioned street corner pub which has been knocked through although it retains some of its original features such as the magnificent hexagonal mirror panelled ceiling. It was very busy when we visited on a Saturday evening during the RBESG and no wonder as the beer range is superb and the service excellent. It was the first time I’d seen Tom in his new role as manager of the pub. He was in his element and doing a great job.

Update: Three years later and the Craft Beer Co. is still going strong, with several more pubs around town. The service is friendly and the beer selection remains very good indeed. Ratebeerians are always welcome and Tom has made the upstairs room available for us on many occasions, most recently for the Grand Tasting (part 2) during the RBESG 2014. (Last visited 10 August 2014).

Another fine drinking establishment! Nothing like a good old London pub, although this a class above, fantastic choice of cask and hand pulled beers, plenty of bottles too. I will be back!!!

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.
