Bar at Waterloo Station branding itself as a craft beer pub. Once you go down the stairs to the medium sized pub/bar area and seating, what you really find is a pub with four cask taps, three or four keg taps of mainly lager, Guinness Ice Cold, one Meantime Special and Brewdog 5am Saint and a handful of craft bottles/non-craft bottles such as Sierra Nevada,, Cerveza Cristal, Duval, Samuel Adams, Camden Town Helles. Not at all extensive and I expected to find at least one rare beer on keg. Instead what you can say is that they have something good to drink, beyond the standard pub fare. The hamburgerís served here also looked good, but didnít try one.

A quick pit stop to pick up a Meantime tick (thanks Colin). Downstairs from the maim concourse this is an all right bar with some reasonable taps and an okay selection of bottled beer. Itís not going to blow the socks off any seasoned ratebeerian but if you are stranded at Waterloo waiting for a train home this is a pretty reasonable place to wait in.

Located on Waterloo station concourse, train side opposite the low numbered platforms 1-5, the Beer House is accessed via a staircase leading into a cellar. A medium sized cellar bar seating 70 or 80 people, the place was at least half full and doing a good trade just after 5pm on a Wednesday. Of the 6 cask lines only 4 were in use offering GK IPA, Pride, Castle Rock Harvest Pale and a Jennings beer. The keg taps are largely macro however BD 5am Saint was available and at least 3 seem to be reserved for Meantime beers and I picked up a new release with only one rate in the form of their London Smoked Porter. A half of this was £2.50 so London railway station prices as youíd expect. The service was a little poor, I didnít have to wait to be served but I had to repeat my beer to the server 3 times, as if she was used to being asked for a Heineken or Amstel but anything a little out of this comfort zone caused her to switch off and not bother listening! There are around a dozen or so bottles in the fridges behind the bar, I didnít get a good look at these but there seemed to be a few beers of interest, not to the hardened ticker, but some acceptable Belgian brews and maybe an SN offering or two. Overall this is a pretty decent option for a mainline railway station when I recall the days where all you would get is one dull regional cask offering and everything else would be macro. Not a go to destination but if you have 20 minutes to kill at Waterloo - hit it up, although if/when the Waterloo Tap opens I canít see this place being of much use!
