Visited many times - and will be back next time in London. Absolutely one of my favorite beer-spots to visit, whenever I am in London. Lovely 2 storage cornerpub, rather easy to get to from almost everywhere in London ( or thatīs what I feel.. ). Even though itīs a spacy pub, it can be rather crowded at times. Beers in good condition, superfriendly staff, thatīs know theit beer histrory. Cosy atmophere, you really feels beerlovers around you. Lovely ceilling of mirrors, I think a lot of people have taken pictures of it!!!.. They do from times to times have like meet the brewer / brewery events.. They have a few bar snacks, but you canīt eat here. See you next time in London :-)

No doubt, the best beer bar I have ever been to in London. Itís quite a thrill to walk into this street corner pub and see the great line-up of pump clips displaying 16 cask ales followed by some very interesting keg beers, and added by hundreds of bottles in the printed beer menu. What a great place to be, comfortable and relaxing. Exquisite hosting from Tom and the young barman. During a few splendid drinking hours I had five cask ales, one from keg (house lager from Mikkeller), and shared three bottles. All the beers were in perfect condition and were served at a fine drinking temperature. Great music, not too loud American grunge, that was to my liking. I came alone on an early Monday afternoon, but was soon joined by other ratebeerians like Miksu, hanniku, oh6gdx and DJMonarch. Thanks for the great time, guys. (Visited, 1st August 2011).

Best range of beers around. Big rank of handpumps dispensing ever-changing top notch UK beers. Keg beers, often esoteric imports, that you will not find anywhere else in London, except maybe the Cask. Massive choice of bottles but I rarely get tot hose. Great staff (and management). Prices are reasonable, particularly for the cask beers. Keg beers can be pricey but you have to be prepared to pay a bit extra for this stuff. LImited food. Can get crowded, especially after work on Fridays. Unmissable.

CBC is located in a great spot of Clerkenwell in central London. This is the younger sister of Cask Pub and Kitchen. The offerings on cask and keg are ridiculously good. The beer is always in great nick, these guys know how to handle their product. The bottle list is very good, not to CPKís standard, but probably the second best in London. Seating can be difficult to obtain if you show up on a Wednesday-Saturday evening. Their upstairs room can get really hot and stuffy. As the pubís located on a quiet street, many punters opt to drink outside. Prices are quite high, but Iím happy to pay for the quality. Food options are minimal (scotch eggs, meat pies) and expensive, but good if youíre willing to splurge.

Visited on a saturday lunchtime and I was the only customer, so hard to give an ambiance score. Friendly, knowledgeable staff and a huge, varied selection, especially on draft.

This place was def. one of my best experiences in Lodon. Giant selection of FRESH casks and ciders (Crouch Vale, Moor, Thornbridge, etc.) and lots of interesting foreign beers both on draught and bottles. Quick service and fairly priced. Dope.

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!

Had high hopes for this place after being told how wonderful it was by some London based beer geek mates. Sadly it didnít live up to my expectations. We arrived fairly early on a Saturday evening (20.00 hours, 28th April 2012) and found a single but large bar room full to the rafters of drunks blocking the bar, filling every seat and being very noisey. My party of eight struggled to find a space let alone a gap big enough for all of us but we squeezed in anyway and then tried to reach the bar: we almost gave up but split into pairs and weasled our way through. Chairs and half a table for three of us after the first pints. Didnít even try to get upstairs: so know idea what itís like up there. Loads of choice but no chance of seeing a beer menu: theyíd been eaten, we just choose what beer we could see once we hit the front of the bar. There might have a chalk board but I donít remember seeing one. Stayed for two expensive pints then left. Beer quality we thought poor and I ended up helping people finish their pints because they were not enjoying them. Staff over run but trying hard, dirty glasses and tables (and floors) but left because of the beer pouring frenzy.

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)
