Wow. London has come quite a way with beer. I was very impressed with this bar, in the middle of the market area of Hatton Garden. Interior is quite upscale and the tap selection is great. Strange that there wasn’t an overview anywhere of the beers on tap/cask but since it was very quiet this wasn’t an issue. Very impressive all around.

Had high hopes for this place after being told how wonderful it was by some London based beer geek mates. Sadly it didn’t 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. Didn’t even try to get upstairs: so know idea what it’s like up there. Loads of choice but no chance of seeing a beer menu: they’d 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 don’t 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.

What a brilliant place. Made my way in from outside London on a Friday night and it was packed out - standing room only. A dozen high quality ales in close proximity to one another and another 2 dozen craft beers as well. Like a beer heaven. A good crowd, and [thankfully] no music. Decent people to talk to as well. Had several beers and each one was extremely well kept, tasty and fresh. Will be returning soon

Had my first visit last Friday evening. Was pretty quiet until 18ish but then got packed quickly, but there was plenty of staff on hand and never really had to wait long to get served, and the staff were very friendly, knowledgeable happy for you to sample before buying. Best aspect of course is the sheer choice available, really mind boggling. Understand the pricing system overall (especially for the imports) but only negative is that i found the pricing of The Kernel rather expensive at £7.00 a pint. The same brew only cost me £5.00 for a pint at the Catford Bridge Tavern the week before. Quite a difference.

Great place, great selection and good service. Sadly, we did not have much time so we had to concentrate on the best of UK beers. Will definitely visit again! (Visited November 16th 2012)

Absolutely world class establishment, one of the finest I’ve ever visited. Happy to have done so on several occasions on my most recent trip to London, and happier still to do so in the company of the estimable London crew. Shout-outs galore to Tom especially for being such a gracious, thoughtful, and generous proprietor. Service all around was flawless, beer selection drool-worthy, and only the food selection could stand some improvement (though the chorizo pie was pretty delish). Essential in every way.

World class. Not much to add. Modern interior. A "must visit" for the beer hunter.

Selection on tap was amazing. Bottle selection however did disappoint. Also staff wasn’t too knowledgable and find it hard to suggest what I was asking for. Seems more of a mainstream place with loads of beers. The punters are also a kind of after work city crowd.

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.
