Great place. Has lots of beers on tap and the variety was good, had lots of bottles too but didn’t get to those. Bar staff were helpful in giving us recommendations and samples as we were unfamiliar with a lot of the small brewers. Prices seemed reasonable (but I am from Australia so all UK beer seems cheap). The place is full of suits and there was one group that was loud and annoying but most people there were just enjoying the beer so the atmosphere was fine.

Ok place when not crowded. The acustic is terrible. Ok service but not outstanding. Fantastic selection with loads of casks and tabs. Didnt check the bottle selection, hadnt time! Not that expensive. World class place but can improove. (ambiance and service)

Awesome hole in the wall in London. Went on a Thursday night and there was a good amount of ’after work’ crowd (IE; literally people in their work attire getting business after hours). Impressive selection on draft and cask. The only thing that is holding this place back is the fact that beer is sold in two quantities huge or somewhat huge. People don’t need to drink a half imperial pint of Kolval.. But, considering it’s England this place is awesome and I’ll come back every time I am in "the City".

Without doubt one of the best tap selections in Europe, with a nice mix of British and imported beers. Frist time i have seen Fyr & Flamme and Bestefar from Haandbryggeriet (or Haand as it was called) on tap outside of Norway (at half the price). As expected the place was busy on a friday night, but we were able to secure a couple of seats in the rather bland upstairs lounge.

Clearly a fantastic beer bar, with a range unparallelled in the UK. You could easily spend all day here. The only difficulty is knowing what to try first, second, third etc.

Il più affollato dei pub londinesi da me visitati. Probabilmente un motivo c’è e sta nel fatto che la selezione di birre è davvero ottima: oltre a ottime real ales inglesi spillate a pompa hanno anche una selezione di grandi successi internazionali come mikkeller, evil twin, southern thier. In più diversi frigoriferi fanno da sfondo per soddisfare le esigenze anche dei più incontentabili. Prezzi nella norma di londra,forse un po’ piccolo e l’ambiente ne risente soprattutto in orario di punta. Gentilissimi i ragazzi al banco.

Great selection of craft and handpumped beers. Loved the Mikkeller beers on tap, the stout I tried was amazing.

This is THE bar for beer lovers. I am fortunate in that I live literally 1 min away from the place and I can’t get enough of the place. The staff are well informed about what’s on sale and will assist in helping a punter choose a beer that suits their palate if not educated themselves on craft beers etc Much better than it’s previous incarnation the Clock House. CBC can get busy in the evening. Not over priced either as there are some reasonably priced beers but one can splurge if desired.. But hey when the beer is that good I’m not complaining.
