  • Craft Beer London

    Craft Beer London Says…

    This bar-cum-offie in a railway arch (naturally) is not, by any means, over-decorated. There's a row of fridges down one side, some snazzy graffiti, a bar at the back and a number of tables. But it works, perhaps because it houses so many of the best beers available in London at the moment. Expect to find The Kernel, De Molen, Rogue, Schneider and others of the same quality on the bar and in the fridges, to drink in and take away.

And the selection of bottles is staggering – and it’s all judiciously chosen...A row of unmarked taps along the metallic back wall offer a head-spinning range of brews to those who prefer to get stuck in on-site, and they all change pretty much every day. So you've got an excuse to keep going back.

Yet it stocks a phenomenal range of ales and ciders, so we feel duty-bound to include it. To hell with's going in the Best Pubs database.
