Attended a private event upstairs but also purchased beers from the bar. This location is about 15 minutes walking from Kingís Cross. Relaxing comfortable interior. One of the best selections I found in London, with the other being the Euston tap. Beers were in good condition. Recommended.

Visited during London beer city, Magic Rock tap takeover. Place was packed. Very good selection, both cask and draft, friendly service and they also had a small band playing jazz. Food (burger) was bit disappointing but thatís not a reason for skipping the place. Sadly, pint/half pint only. Worth a visit.

One of the best selections in the UK, but youíll pay through the teeth for it! Really impressively curated tap list, with keg and cask well represented. Great mix of styles on offer at all times, and representing breweries from across the whole globe. Best bottle selection in the city. Old-skool pubby vibe on the most part, with dark greens, satins, and wood panelling. Nice fireplace and a good little beer garden/yard. Service can be fairly clinical: there to serve, not chat shit. Fair enough. Burgers on offer, they look on the nice side of naughty. A proper beer-focused destination.

2015-09-23. Love the atmosphere, which feels much more traditionally pubby than Clerkenwell, but still refined and polished. The beer selection is solid with some decent offerings on tap and cask, and bottles are impressive albeit pricey. Some music starts up at some point and seems to shift between trad music and bluesy American Folk ( "Honky tonk blues"). Servers were friendly, and accomodated my request for a half-portion of pork scratchings so I could try the maple flavoured kind. (Very nice.) Had some good suggestions about the beer. I had a seat in one of a pair of big comfy chairs in front of the bar. Small patio. Beware the small step on the way to the bathroom, I almost fell every time I went to the bathroom! Tough to describe but this was my favorite of the Craft Beer Co. pubs I visited on this trip. Good balance of atmosphere and beer selection.

Smaller than Clerkenwell, with far less selection, but lots of interest on the menu. Bar man was a bit irritating, preching about what sours beer are about while not even knowing how lambic is made. Well, everytng else was good. Imports are quite expensive.

This is surely one of the best beer bars in London - and the coziest of the Craft Beer bars. Massive selection of beers, nice ambiance and friendly staff. A craft beer heaven!

ManVsBeer  (1768) Hebden Bridge, England | May 4, 2015
On the street directly behind the Hilton Hotel on the City Road, this is a small but relaxing pub that packs in the drinks on its tiny L-shaped bar in the corner of the first area as you enter. Itís a cosy open plan three room affair with soft furnishings and soft colours throughout. Thereís a couple of comfortable chairs around a fireplace in the first, a greater number of places to sit in the adjoining front room, and a greater capacity in the rear area thatís a little more spartan in design but includes diagrams on the brewing process and a beer wheel diagram full of tasting note terminology. Thereís a fairly substantial, and equal number of cask and keg ales available with a clear focus on microbreweries from up and down the country.

Visited the 17th April 2015 - A very nice place, very cosy witha huge beer selection and a friendly staff. Really great selection with presence of many style and many breweries, with good price. You can also buy bottle and take away. The staff is friendly and experimented and will help you for sure. About the atmostphere one of the best place I went in London. I really recommend this place. About the food there is a kitchen side but I didnít taste it.
