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 it’s 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 Friggin’ WORLD!! This s not the best "NEW" pub in London. . . It is the BEST PUB in London. Full Stop!

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

Exceptional addition to London’s 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. Tom’s 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.

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.

Visited on our recent trip through London. Part of a new movement of craft beer bars in the London area with 5 locations across London and growing. Great selection of beers, great service and prices. We were able to try numerous beers before purchasing either a half or full pour. Great locations for all of their bars and would highly recommend for those seeking a larger variety than your typical british bitter or ESB. World class selection, location, service and prices. Highly recommend visiting any of their locations while in London.

The original Craft Beer Co is my favorite pub in London. Fantastic selection of beers on keg, cask, and bottle including occasional one-offs and exclusives. All beers are always in great condition. They regularly host awesome events for brewery/beer launches, anniversaries, meet the brewers, etc. The staff here are fantastic. Extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient and will happily provide samples and recommendations. In addition to beer, they also have some very nice spirits including Pappy Van Winkle bourbons. A must visit pub for anyone in London.

Après une visite éclair au Ye Olde Mitre tavern, on se faufile jusqu’au deux seules places disponibles au bar. Le reste aura été enfilade de cask et de bouteilles en se mêlant à la foire sociale dans laquelle nous nous sommes accostés. Le beer bar au sommet de son art.

No.1 pub in London as stated on rate beer! Superb pub, staff here want you to enjoy your beer, quality cellarmanship, try before you buy on all beers, air conditioned, great atmosphere early afternoon, very busy after 5 Mon-Fri. Hand made scotch eggs and Mr Barricks pork pies available. A TOTAL must if in the city

A said the No.1 pub in London and a must visit. Great pub, friendly staff and over 35 beers on tap: The Kernel, Beavertown, Magic Rock, Thornbridge, BBNo, The Bruery, Green Flash, Hoppin’ Frog, Toccalmatto, Evil Twin, Omnipollo... You’re in England so your beer is expensive, but what a place. Go there!

From the people who brought you CASK Pub & Kitchen. It’s 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.
