A few cask ales in very good condition. Big selection of bottled beers. Also a lot of beers from outside the UK. Much more than just your usual english pub. Seems to be a very popular place among the London beer geeks, and I can understand why. Small and very crowded in the evenings. Tom is a very nice guy.

Love this place. Itís a regular of mine. Always a great selection, a few decent casks, some interesting kegs and a fridge full of cool beer. A must visit bar in London.

Fantastic place, huge choice. Expect to find rare brews on tap and a fridge stuffed to the rafters with quality beer. Even though it can get very busy on market days thereís always somewhere to loiter where one can soak up the ambience and ponder lifeís mysteries. Even better on non-market days when the ambient atmos. and the quiet collide to form a collage of pensive thought and tasty ale. Marvelous!

Discovered this place nearly a year ago, Iím a frequent visitor and have introduced many many people to this marvellous bar since. Youíre be hard pressed to find a better beer bar than this one....and what a selection.

Extensive selection accross the board. The first place I tried Stone courtesy of Mike, one of the bosses. If you want Stone; proper ale, seasonal ale, rare stuff, German beer on tap, Cantillon, English ale, Trappist beers then come here. 29th July 2010. Edit - Since The Cadís left Iíve found myself here wondering what happend to the conditioning. The beer selection in the fridge is good but still random. Just the conditioning has left myself reeling.

Packed to the gills on a Thurs. Night. So much so that it was HOT as HELL and I could barely see the bar. Being with seven others didnít make matters any easier. When I did finally manage to see a few of the bottles and taps my jaw dropped. Then just as I was leaving ran into MagicDave by pure accident. Ah, what bliss. Now I want to go back for more and more and more. THANKS to Tom!

From outside I wouldnít have noticed it if harrisoni hadnít been guiding me. Small and shiny inside. There was only me, Ian and another bloke, but it still seemed quite crowded. What is it like when itís really full? Nice outdoor terrace. Huge range of bottled beers. Two decent casks, and we enjoyed American and German bottles.

What a find! Happened to catch up with some beer friends while visiting recently from NZ- this place is amazing with a huge selection of beers I could only dream of getting in New Zealand. Rich - you are doing a wonderful thing for beer!

Lovely bar - wish it was my local! They get a great selection of draft beers here and a wall full of chilled bottle beer sourced from sister company Utobeer round the corner. Glynn does a great job running this place and always has friendly efficient staff backing him up. Be warned this is a cosy place and it gets rammed on Fridays. Also donít be surprised at £5 or £6 a pint if itís something special on tap from the USA - the price reflects the cost of getting a barrel or two all the way from the USA! Without exception the quality of the beer is worth it! Always a good atmosphere here - highly recommended.
