A charming little two-roomed cornerpub in the Clerkenwell area, a short walk from the Craft Beer Co. Itís a freehouse with six hand pumps, one of them for cider. I had three cask ales from the Portobello microbrewery, all of them in tip top condition and served at the very right drinking temperature. For lunch I had a tasty dish called Ham, Egg, Fries which was one of five food options. Friendly service with Stonch hanging around. Music free and relaxing. A good banter! (Visited 23.09.2014).

Visited in August 2014, with beery friends :-). After a long walk this little cosy place turned up ( I spotted it, while the guys were discussing where to go ).. A small, but very cosy pub, beers and the perry were served in good condition, very friendly staff, who knew their stuff of the beers. In the back a nice little beergarden, I really loved this place, maybe because I spotted it ;-)..

Cozy English pub with a tiny bar and. Nice rear patio. Service was friendly and a few casks to keep you happy. Prices are good. A great quiet local in a busy part of town.

Mostly an alright place. Not very many taps, seven I think. Hurried service but was crowded. Food looks good, a bit on the pricey side I suppose, but pretty nice.

A small pub with guest beers usually from some local newish breweries eg. Windsor & Eton / East London Brewery etc. Did have a London brewery fest about a year ago which was good as had beers on stillage in the back room aswell as beers passing through the handpumps. But the high prices put me off this pub.

First visit to this great little pub last night, only to find they were running a beer Festival. I didnít appreciate that this was Stonchís pub at the time, but we really quite enjoyed it. On our vote going home it equalled the pub of the night. I have put a good mark for selection as the Winter Ales Fest was on, there were some big beers on thatís for certain. I would imagine itís quite a bit more restricted normally. The pub itself is a bit higgeldy piggeldy with a hump to get over, tricky with a handfull of beers. Great little pub though, shame itís shut at weekends.
Revisit Feb í13. Unfortunately the beer quality in here was pretty poor on this visit, the service remains decent and the food looks fine. The prices seem to have shot up.

The Gunmakers is small pub located less than 2 minutes walk from The Craft Beer Co. There were 4 cask beers on when I visited, plus 4 keg options including two beers from the fantastically mediocre Meantime Brewery. As others have pointed out, the prices are pretty steep; I paid £2 for a half of beer by Windsor & Eton. The ambiance is fine, full of office types. The food looked good. Overall, this pub isnít much of a destination, though it wouldnít be a bad choice on a Holborn/Clerkenwell pub crawl.

Decent pub. Five casks I think. Nothing too exciting on my visit, but they did have two Redemption beers, which is good to see. Prices seemed a bit high (A half of Hook Norton bitter ran me almost £2). Nice ambiance, although this is a fairly small pub that feels even smaller due to low ceilings. The clientele struck me as quite íhipí. A nice pub to check out but it probably wouldnít make my top 20 in London.

Small, tidy pub run by blogger Stonch. It has a relaxed, laid back, up-market feel. Quite pleasant, and while being fairly unremarkable, is also quite likeable. Hard to explain sometimes why a building has charm, but the size and layout and ambiance of this one gives it a certain charm, which people have remarked upon for several years, long before Stonch took over. Four casks, nothing special, but served in decent condition. Other than size there isnít a real lot of essential difference between this and the Yorkshire Grey around the corner, but this is quaint, while the Grey is simply useful. Not worth a detour - especially as the beer selection is just under average for London, but if youíre doing a crawl of the Clerkenwell area and you collect pubs this is very close to Craft Beer.
