One of my favourite bars in London. You primarily head hear for the awesome selection. The cask and keg offerings are ever changing and mostly cover UK craft ales with some American, German and Belgian options. I have to admit since Tom left I have found the conditioning to be a bit inconsistent. The bottle selection however never disappoints and contains a great wide-ranging selection of craft beers, including some pretty rare stuff. Inside the bar is quite small, but it has a decent patio area to make up for it. A perfect place to escape the carnage of Borough market.

Tiny place, but incredible selection of beers, both tap and in the fridge. Staff that know their stuff, fairly clean, bit pricey but cant complain.

I was growing really tired of English pubs when I stumbled upon this one. No crap on tap, loads of awesome micro brews. Had a Stone Pale Ale on tap and a nice Indian Brown Ale from Dogfish Head. I _WILL_ be back!

Visited on Saturday 15th January 2011 during crawl with two friends around London Bridge/Borough. Small, pub offering mainly standing space within, and seating outside in a covered garden. Friendly knowledgeable staff and an exceptional beer range. Beers very well-kept, and include US and European varieties on tap alongside traditional real ales. The refridgerated range is impressive. Can get crowded, and the garden can get draughty but these are minor grumbles. Go, you’ll enjoy it. Beware, not cheap!

I found this place on several guides that reviewed it back as a "pub" but I think has nothing of the pub apart from the beers. It ’s just a place where they sell beer. A pub has a "soul", has a service, has music and a host of amenities that allow customers to enjoy beer in a state of relaxation. The Rake has nothing of this, is "hot" like a dentist’s waiting room. Speaking of beer The Rake is at the top as a supply and variety. If there is a beer you find it there. If you go looking for quality beer in is one of the most ever supplied with unavailable Real Ales.
Ho trovato questo posto su diverse guide che lo riportavano nella categoria “pub” ma a mio avviso The Rake a parte la birra non ha nulla del pub. E’ un posto dove si vende la birra. Un pub ha “un’anima”, ha un servizio, ha la musica e una serie di comfort che permettono alla clientela di apprezzare la birra in una situazione di relax. The Rake non ha nulla di questo, è “caldo” come la sala d’aspetto di un dentista. Parlando di birre è un locale al top come fornitura e varietà. Se esiste una birra lì la trovi.
Se cerchi la qualità della birra vai in uno dei posti tra i più forniti in assoluto con Real Ales introvabili.

A nice joint, with some very good and rare beers along with some crap stuff such as Timmermans on tap.

This is pretty much the only place I even would consider paying six quid (or more) a pint for draught beer - and here I will even do it willingly! As well as several (usually British) cask ales on hand-pump, there are kegged US and other rare-in-London microbrews on tap, plus a good selection of bottles. Service is friendly but can be a bit slow.

One of the original craft beer bars of London. Although, in the last two years The Rake has been surpassed by no less than five other bars, in my opinion, in terms of beer variety, beer quality and certainly atmosphere.The bar itself is modest and quite small, with a slightly larger patio adjacent. Most of the people, however, stand around in a nearby parking lot drinking their beers. The tap selection was decent on my first visit, with several British bitters, American brewer Stone, and some other oddities. There seemed to be an extensive bottle selection in the fridges behind the bar but I stuck to the draught stuff. The main reason I went to the bar was for a BrewDog tasting with brewer James Watt, which was superb. We tried three rare beers, including the AB:03, the Devine Rebel Mortlach Reserve 2008, and the End of History. The tap line-up seems to change quickly - I saw two changes just while I was there on a Tuesday evening - so I look forward to returning to try new beers. Great place.

Small, very cool beer-centric bar. Nothing bad to say about the place--great selection, knowledgeable staff, casual.
