From the people who brought you CASK Pub & Kitchen. Itís already one up from the CASK and Euston Tap for being in a proper public house building. Inside the decor is a minimal take on the traditional pub, but amazingly has an original mirrored ceiling from the original pub fittings. Beer list is amazing. Rows of cask and keg pulls across the bar and literally hundreds of bottles, including rarities that you usually just do not get in the UK, even at the Tap or CASK. Atmosphere is also great. Was full on the Sat I attended and also included plenty of women which is always a bonus at a venue for beer nerds like myself. Attractive barmaids and a manager who knows his stuff. What more could a guy want.

Terrific new pub in Clerkenwell. Sixteen handpumps - including 1 regular house beer, a very drinkable pale brewed by Kent Brewery and a cider - and 21 keg pumps for beers around the world. The cask beers have been consistently superb when Iíve visited and the kegs have been amazing!! It does get busy but service is always very good. Fantastic!

Exceptional addition to Londonís blossoming craft beer scene that will be very difficult to follow. Martin, Tom and the team got everything right before opening: their attention to detail has really paid off. Tomís lgendary cellarmanship means that ordering from any of the 16 hand pumps is never a gamble (rare in London pubs). As far as food goes, the simple snacks do the job of letting you spend more valuable drinking time enjoying the liquid bread, however: it is worth noting that there is a very good value take away pizza joint a few doors away if you are really hungry or the pub has sold out. Not the cheapest pint in London, but still excellent value due to the guaranteed quality. Competing pubs and bars will have to raise their game in future.

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!

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.

Huge selection of casks. Great draughts with a lot of nice Mikkeller beers. Impressive bottle list. Nice staff. What else can you ask for?

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.
