Nice place. Big and spacious. Plenty of seating. They had about 20 beers on tap / cask. The draft beers weren’t too impressive. Standard offerings from Denmark and America with a few English beers. The bottle list was nice from Lambic, Trappiste and a wide range or European and American beers. They offer tasting of draft beers so I tasted 6 beers and did ratings which was nice.

Very nice and cosy pub in Londen. Very nice selection of beers. Very friendly people with good knowledge of their beers. Most of the beers are served from tap, around 30 beers from tap. Must visit when you’re in London.

Very good bar in terms of beer. Was there in the afternoon. Maybe the ambiance isn’t that great, but they had a lot of beers on tap that were worth trying. Maybe if the seats were more comfortable I’d have warmer memories of the place. But as it is, it feels a bit aseptic and like it was all about trying different beers, rather than having a fun time. But maybe I’d like it more another day.

All good. An old school pub reinvented into a serious beer mecca.

Very nice selection of beers, good service and friendly staff. However, take caution when paying with foreign credit cards. They charged me in my local currency instead of GBP without asking. I wouldn’t mind tipping you off for your good service, but in this case you are stealing from your customers. This is not okay at all.

Was there in july obly a week or two after they opened. When we got there at 5 in the afternoon it was so insanely crowded, I guess there was about 50-60 people oot on the street as well as te actual bar being completely crammed with people. S it was so crowded I didn’t get any impression of the over all service, the staff were busy seemed friendly. The kegs and cask list was impressive, but very similar to, say, CPK. The prices on cask ales were very reasonable, £3.40 a pint, where as the kegs were a bit on the high side. Bottle list was also impressive, lots of Amerian micros as well as classics like Mikkeller, Nøgne Ø and what have you. The surroundings in the bar was a bit preppy and chique, but definitely a place I was spend an afternoon if it wasn’t completely crowded. Will return next time I’m in London, hoping it’s not so crowded.

Been there on a Saturday early afternoon, which probably helped avoid the biggest crowd. Lots of seats available upstairs. The main room is just a spacious area in front of the counter and a few small tables at corners. Altough the forniture is typical British pub, the armosphere wasn’t very cozy. Bartenders were smiling and friendly, which is always appreciated. Selection on tap is wide with good English offerings on cask as well. Bottle list is deep and interesting, with many unique Danish and US offerings. A few things from Italy and Scandinavia as well. Food choice is very narrow: either English pies or Scotch eggs. Good but a bit pricey. Cheaps by the bag of course as well, but lack of kichen can be an issue if wanting to eat a full meal alongside your drinks. Prices were quite steep for kegs, but in line with London craft beer stadards. Huge and varied bottle selection with many gems. Overall, nice place for selection, maybe lacking slightly is atmosphere.

Located a just short walk from the tube station. Nice tap selection of local, European and American craft beers. Massive amount of local casks as well, many of which from breweries I haven’t even heard of. Great quality focused, although a bit pricey bottle selection as well. Overall a must visit if you are in town.
