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..

Visited on 6th May 2017. Just a couple of mins up the road from Brewdog, this is a single roomed venue with a focus on food and good beer. The decor is quite odd with some lovely old tiling on the walls but some is missing leaving bare brick or concrete but it does, somehow fit in. Quite a decent mix of cask and keg beers with a few unusual beers on keg especially. Prices were a little steep, service was good and quality was good. I sort of liked this place, worthy of a look in.

Seemed very popular, busiest place on our East London crawl. Interesting selection, although while we were visiting most of the crowd didn’t seemed to be beer geeks. Worth visiting at least for a pint.

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...
