Looking at my score I’m wondering if I’m being a little harsh. 3 for ambiance. I’m not going higher and could go lower. It gets the job done and isn’t polished at all. Bit who cares if the beers good? Service, fine. Relatively quick but it was quite quiet. Good selection at reasonable prices. Couple of stouts and pale ales on tap. And a gose and a couple of lagers so everyone should be happy. Well stocked fridges but it seemed a little expensive. But it is London. Pressure drop tap take over in 2 weeks. I’ll be returning.

Lovely little cousy place with a solid beer scene. My advice is to avoid this place friday evening. VERY crowded. Lovely patio also.

the Rake. The godfather of Craft Beer in London and the place I dreamed of when I was stuck working in the Middle East! Time however has moved on and I think the craft beer explosion has left the Rake looking a bit unloved. I was in last night and both the taps and bottles were a little uninspiring. Not a single IPA on the tap/pumps but three stouts. I get irritated by this. When you eat at a Gordon Ramsey’s he doesn’t only have 3 beef main courses!! Come on guys plan ahead. Anyway had an decent smoked beer than a few cans of beavertown session IPA which were all good but I cannot help that others are now doing it better. I expect the Rake to still be showcasing the best not sharing stock with Tesco’s (ok maybe a slight exaggeration) but Fullers frontier on tap and flying dog in the fridge doesn’t cut the mustard.

The_Osprey  (134) Richmond, England | August 30, 2014
Very small pub, very little in the way of seating, better when they put up the marquee outside. Good selection, but not up there with Draft House, CBC, Cask and Brewdog in my opinion. A good spot for tourists who could visit Borough Market (Utobeer), walk along the Thames and maybe do the Bermondsy breweries in the same day.

Our favourite craft beer bar in London this tiny place at the rear of Borough Market has three ales on handpump plaus a varying range of craft beers from both the continent and / or the USA depending on when you visit. They also often have tap take overs form various breweries, only recently was by Flying Dog. The place does get very busy later in the week but the staff are very good at serving so it rarely takes more then a few minutes to get served. The outside area is actually larger than the inside area which is almost compleetly covered by the large umbrella when the weather is not good so even in winter, with the heaters on you can still sit outside.

This is the place that got me into craft beer and is my favourite in London. Absolutely tiny inside area, but such a huge selection. Rotating taps, and a massive choice of bottles. Staff are always friendly and helpful, letting me sample before I decide.

Visited 03-JUL-2014. Located besides Borough Market it is a must visit when in the neighbourhood. Very small but when sunny the small outside garden is a fantastic place to enjoy a few beers. Small tap selection and a fine bottle selection. Had nice but not rare taps. Had two beers and were off.

Sympathique avec une terrasse adjacente. Service rapide et attentif pour une sélection honnête sans plus. Un arrêt rapide pour trancher de la cacophonie du marché.
