Probably THE place in London. Huge selection on tap and bottles, lively atmosphere, if itís get to crowded downstairs, take the stairway to the first floor and cool down in the relaxing lounge. Also good for some bird spotting as well!

Wow what a place. Best tapselection i have seen in the UK ... bloody amazing range of keg and a great range of UK cask ales. Plus there is a shed load of bottles. Quality of everythini had was amazing. Service was pretty quick and very plesant. And all told the Decor is just stunning. Really liked the look and feel of the place.

Tremendous place - itís often full but the service is excellent. Not to mention, of course the selection of beers.

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 itís 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 Frigginí WORLD!! This s not the best "NEW" pub in London. . . It is the BEST PUB in London. Full Stop!

Maybe the only one I could visit with enough time, good draft beers and a very good selection of beers. I was really surpised because I didínt expect this in England.

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.

Not much more to add. Great place. Lots of US bottles that are not easy to find. Great lineup of cask ales. Tons of Euro Craft beers from keg, draught lambic...Easily the best selection I have seen in the UK.

Easily one of the best pubs in London, and many would say THE best. The range of beers is without peer. The place itself is quite lovely. The staff knows their stuff and the manager rocks! A lot of the beers are on the pricey side (cask ales start at £3.40) but it comes with the territory, I suppose. For me this pub is top three in London.

We (me and Loz) visited here on 23rd July 2011 at Tom and Ianís birthday bash. I have to say this is one cracking little venue, the bar probably runs two thirds of the length of the pub and is jam packed with handpumps and taps I never counted them all but it would be a brave man indeed who even tries to tackle all of the handpump selection, something like thirteen I think/ The service was superb, staff going to great measures to deliver your beer to you with a smile, ensuring the glass was spotless (no drips down the side) in fact just everything about the service was great, I couldnít fault it at all. The beer selection was superb, you really need to do a two nighter before you could really say that youíve made a dent in the selection, I hadnít even the time to look at the bottled beers but something tells me that the selection of those will be stellar. Great building with a quite some history and as Mes informed me was quite close to some heavy Lufftwaffe bombing in WWII which explained the slight jauntiness of some of the windows apparently. In short this is the new must go to place in London and probably leapfrogs very high up on my favourite places as well with a score like this.
