Between Smithfield Market and the Barbican, this gem of a pub combines old-fashioned charm with a brilliant up-to-the-minute craft beer menu. Four cask, 12 keg and a smattering of interesting bottles, you can find beer from London (Fourpure, Kernel, Mondo, Siren) and farther afield. The informative website and tantalising ’coming soon’ board let you know what may be in store for your future. Because, of course, you are coming back as soon as you can.

Nice place in Smithfield, good selection on tap, lots of local London beers, very nice, yet very expensive food. Worth it though.

A little and intim Place. We was only downstairs, it was full upstairs. Friendly staff, ok selection on tap. No Music in this Place. 12 on tap, cool bottle placing (unsure on the right English Word :)). Next time i will try the Food.

Bright and modern. A good option for a Ratebeerian and/or a ticker, as the selection is pretty good. 12 keg and 4 cask when I visited. However, the style and décor really isn’t my type of thing - it’s more of a small café with beer instead of tea. Although, I must admit, I did not look upstairs.

Really impressed with this place, stopped by on a sunny Friday (12th Sep 2014) just by chance while traversing around London looking for interesting sights and sounds. We stayed downstairs in the small, square room with the bar. Upstairs sounded busy and plenty of people came down as we drank a few beers during our little stay. Fronted by an Italian lad who was going back home having been in London for four months or so, he was very pleasant and a great asset to the pub. Four hand-pulls, three in use, twelve keg taps. Good basic ’pub grub’ menu and clean looking tables made us have a sausage roll and chips: they were good. All in all a lovely surprise.Lovely church round the back, but costs £4:00 to go in!

Live rating Saturday 19th April 2014. Quiet little place at this time of day on a w/e. From the front window one can view the ongoing Crossrail project, actually I’m being a little economical with the truth what you can see is a crane and large screens with plans showing the lines. You can also see the old Smithfield Market. Back to the pub, the downstairs is tiny with a window table (we’re sat here) and four further tables but really only seating for about 20. There is also an upstairs but I have yet to venture up there yet. Wooden floors and a bar to your right as you enter. Twelve kegs and four casks on offer with the likes of Wild Beer, Kernel amongst those on offer the rest of the choice is a mixture of the moderately interesting with a number of boring amongst. I had two Wild Beer Dourdough (one wasn’t enough!) Loz is on Kernel Simcoe Centennial IPA. Service fine music quite random, we’ve had Barry White, Rod Stewart and Michael Jackson. *** Update to the rating we’ve now got a dodgy pumped up UB40 track on now, ’I can’t help falling in love with you’

Literally over the road from Smithfields market this small little pub is a wonderful addition to any central London pub tour. It’s two floors are nicely laid out, great selection of bottle and keg from both floors. Few odd surprises to like breweries from Windsor and the South-west. The food however is simply incredible and the menu has even been paired with the beer on offer.

Quite small place on two floors near to Smithfield market. W were there on a quiet Saturday afternoon but I’d guss it could get pretty cramped at busier times. I counted four cask and twelve keg lines with some interesting and local beers. Fair number of bottles too but I didn’t pay much attention to what they were. Two of the keg beers were new for me so well worth popping in. Not a major destination in itself but handy if you are in the area.
