Stopped in when I was in the area and was quite impressed. A nice selection of taps and casks with a cider or two. The bartender was extremely friendly and offered up some good suggestions and conversation. The place seemed relatively new and was quite a nice set up. Didnít try the food on this visit but if I ever have the chance to stop in again I will give it a go.

2015-09-24. Nice spot, not much seating. The tiles on the walls remind me of the tube, and the Ministry of Magic at the Warner Bros Harry Potter tour I did yesterday! Server was friendly enough. Surprisingly busy mid-day. Pizza was simple but delicious - great cheese. Not a ton of taps but some solid choices on offer including Kernel, Siren and several from Fyne today. Definitely worth a stop of in the neighbourhood but itís a "pop in" spot for me vs a spot to linger.

Holborn Whippet Has a warren of rooms giving it the most classic British pub feel of any craft place Iíve visited in London so far. Small but well selected assortment of beers available. Good prices. Decent service, a good place

Just a little way from Holborn station the Whippet is a decent pub. Has 2 rooms and bar in the middle, has a decent mix of craft and cask beers, kept in good condition featuring beers from local breweries and some from further afield, although generally the same few. Service good, food is decent too. Might not pick up anything too new here that isnít on in the Tap or Cask/Craft chains but worth a look

Decent selection of keg and cask at very reasonable prices, pleasant staff, very attentive, and offered tastings and opinions, which is cool.

Pizza Place and pub. Six different casks, no really interesting beers. Quite crowded and loud on a monday night. There are better places in London, but maybe worth a short visit if in the area.

A bare-bones drinking house. Seems to be the worst-kept secret in Holborn, but never mind. Five cask and nine keg offerings from the likes of Siren, Redemption, Moor and Buxton, as well as a few German offerings. A new craft beer pub (well, new to me anyway) is always a good thing. However the Holborn Whippet doesnít push the boat out with selection: mostly low-medium ABV offerings of the more widely available styles. You canít fault the prices though: £5 for a pint of craft keg, less than £4 for a pint of cask. The very basic menu includes the elusive currywurst.

Much enjoyed, but wish I had more time to try more. The server was gone a bit, but for good reason as the wind was whipping the awnings about in a blustery wind. At the time I was there (afternoon) it was very relaxed and just what I needed at the time.

Visited Saturday as part of a crawl round Covent Garden and nearby on 16/8/14. Nice bar with great selection if a bit confusing as there were so many on the board.
