One of the best places for craft beer in the province, food is good quality but a little pricy

For London a great bar and a step in the right direction. Ambiance is nice but nothing special, service was very good and selection was decent. Food is mediocre pub food but trying to add beer to enhance. This doesn’t really work and just creates overly high expectations. Update - prices are still too high, service has gotten really slow with no reason and beer list is boring. Disappointing.
It is no surprise that this place is new and already great. With Milos at the Helm, and Adil, Nick,Matt, Jess, and Danielle on the scene, things are bound to lead to greatness. We went last night and were very impressed. 23 draught taps with a large selection of bottles forthcoming. They had quite a few beers I had never tasted before, and a great variation of different styles. IPA, Berliner Weisse, German Weiss, Amber Ale, Imperial Porter, Saison, etc. Service was excellent, and you can tell that the community really loves what is going on here as well. It is a modern restaurant with a nice patio which is on either side of the building. We had pulled pork poutine and smoked chicken wings which came in a nice smoked moustard like sauce. Delicious. Ill be back very soon my friends!
Love this place whenever I’m home in London. 24 or so taps with a decent bottle selection (though where the taps are generally well priced, the bottles are a bit expensive). Always interesting Ontario brews on hand, and I see they’ve started getting some Bellwood’s in which is nice. Always see Milos’ around and he offered me and my friends his table once! Great place in London that, I think, in tandem with Chaucer’s across the street (a better [European] bottle selection) gives London an above average selection. Keep it up!
A very comfortable place to have a beer in London, this would be a very good bar in Toronto. Clean, neat, organized, good lighting. Tables and a decent sized bar. Electronic lists of taps and bottles, signature great Milos Army service.

This is London’s premier beer destination, owned and operated by award-winning publican Milos Kral. The bar has an open tap room layout with a large projector screen that displays all of the draughts. A beautiful two-sided patio overlooks Carling and Talbot streets and seats about 40 people. They serve 23 micro taps and 2 casks with excellent style variation and representation from across the province. A limited bottle menu consists of private order Belgians and high gravity brews like Southern Tier Iniquity, DDC Rigor Mortis, etc. The latest rotating draught is Nickel Brook New World BPA. In terms of food, Executive Chef Matt Reijnen has created entree and bar menus that focus on smoked dishes (meats, veggies, soups), house-made sausages, and upscale pub grub. I recommend the Smoked Wings, Steamed P.E.I. Mussels, and Buttermilk Fried Chicken. Prices are fair as most pints are under $6 and mains run between $14-19. What really distinguishes this place, though, is the superb service and knowledge that Mr. Kral, Adil Ahmed, and Nick Farmer provide to their patrons. If you have a question about a beer or food pairing, these guys are more than happy to answer it. I look forward to watching this bar grow as Milos and crew continue to put more Londoners onto craft beer. A mandatory stop in SW Ontario.
