Unlike the last reviews this place had a huge selection of bottles when I went! Like 35 odd. I didn’t have a draught beer but a Beavertown imperial stout. The vibe is a bit ’bary’ rather than pub proper, with dim lights, some music and neon signs but the decor is retro tiling etc and pretty nice. All in all a good little place really. It wasn’t to rammed on a Saturday night and the staff were nice. Not cheap, but no more than other places round there, and the really expensive bottled were all obscure things..

Looks a bit like the Folies Bergere or something. Hip and happening, with a fistful of pretty good beer choices. Not a premier league venue for beer geeks, but the competition in this area of London is very tough.

Very nice decor, a bit dark-odd-. Nothing special on their beer list, some good labels on tap. Very hipster-friendly and this can get some people upset. Nothing special, but worth a visit.

Interior is a bit odd, strange portraits, naked light bulbs, concrete. The bar is in the middle of the main room. Decent amount of taps, but nothing exciting that can’t easily be found at other places. Music is a bit too loud and it gets crowded in the evenings.

In between brewdog and Kings Arms. Visited first in the afternoon which was quite pleasant as there was no loud music and staff was very attentive. Things changed in the evening when music was way too loud and the place was too crowded. Nevertheless good selection of kegs and cask plus attractive looking food especially the sliders. Ok when arriving early.

Visited august 2014, with good beerfriends and really looking forward to it, buuuuut, it was not that great a visit as expectet. The place look very nice, cosy, with a centerbar and several seatings, but the music was to loud ( and yes I am getting old!! ), but it was way to much!!! Nice range of beers both on tap and bottle. They do food as well, but didn´t fancy to try...

The Well and Bucket is quite close to the excellent Kings Arms and even closer to BrewDog Shoreditch so we thought we’d call in when we were in the area. Unfortunately it was something of a disappointment. It’s full of aesthetic potential but the original tiles are falling off the walls revealing the concrete underneath and the crappy music was deafening. They have four or five hand pumps and about 10 keg taps plus a reasonable bottle list. They also serve food but the atmosphere was so unpleasant that it wasn’t a place to linger. (Visited 17 August 2014).

Spacious old fashioned interior with a modern industrial twist. Old records were playing on the bar. Small but nice selection. Friendly atmosphere with quite some Shoreditch hipsters around. Small outside garden in the back. Nice pub.

Offers quite a few interesting craft ales on bottles, kegs, and from five hand-pumps, served from an island bar in a medium-sized room. I had ales from By the Horns and Redwillow. Crowded and busy on a Sunday afternoon. The place, more a bar than a pub, has got a modern-retro-traditional outlook with some fake Victorian interior. Crap disco music in the background. Poor, inattentive service. Not my kind of place, even though the ales were of good quality. Much better a few minutes further down the road, at the BrewDog Bar (visited 13.07.2014).

Big old city centre watering hole that has had a bit of a stripped out make over inside, but all done to the best possible taste, as Kenny Everitt would say. Grand and chic at the same time takes some doing, but they seem to have achieved it. The service was erratic, but I think that this was mostly due to a crowd of youngsters all buying a single drink on credit cards. I then became faffed and made the wrong choice of beer, schoolboy error. We couldn’t get a seat but managed to cling to a piece of barspace. Popular for good reason.
