Place is something of a hoot. The Borough Market loo behind the pub interior is larger than the pub interior. There are 3 beer engines, and all the beers were rare and good. Large bottle selection. Cramped interior is augmented by a beer garden with a monster umbrella seemingly capable of turning the garden into an interior space. Tho I don’t know if anyone lives nearby, it had the atmosphere of a local invaded by tourists.

Nice pub close to Market Porter. Decent selection on cask and keg. Nice bottle selection. A quite small place thats gets crowded quickly. Lets say the standard of the mens room was not world class...

Small pub with garden and a largre beer selection. No food and 8 taps and about 100 beers. This bar I was not happy with at all. It was more expensive then most other bars in the area. The place is a wreck, behind the bar looks like a bomb went off. And watched the staff clean the glasses and ordered a bottle. Selection is good but that is about it. If that is what you looking for you are better off at the Draft House. Never again

Tiny, cramped and in a funny little corner of Borough market, but has a brilliant selection of beers, including craft beers from around the world. If you are into beer in London then this is a place you need to be aware of. Not exactly buzzing with atmosphere though so don’t expect a friendly bar kind of welcome. More of a stop over than a place you’ll stay the evening.

Small modern trendy beer bar close to London Bridge Underground & other real ale pubs. Fantastic selection of interesting draught & bottled beers. "NO CRAP ON TAP" Knowledgeable bar staff & reasonable prices. Another must visit for beer tourists.

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.
