The Telegraph Says...
How ironic that London's smallest pub should have the capital's best beer selection. On a golden evening as the market winds down, the thirsty throng spills into the pub's back yard, which is conspicuously bigger than the bar inside...The Rake offers about eight regularly changing draught beers, with perfumed Veltins pilsner a pretty constant feature. If you can't find the beer you're looking for at The Rake, you're not looking hard enough.
They’re always chagning the 5 beers they have on tap, and if they don’t take your fancy then you have over 200 bottles of beer and cider to choose from, and if you still can’t find something you like then you need to stop being so difficult! And despite the “No crap on tap” policy, they’ll let you taste a few to make sure you get it just right.
The tap brews, offered in third-of-a-pint measures for easy sampling, are merely the tip of a beery iceberg: as befits an operation run by the folk behind the Utobeer stall in Borough Market, there are also bottles galore from all corners of the world, an enticing selection sold at elevated prices.
