Stopped off for a quick pint there on Saturday, and *loved* the place. A seriously good selection of ales, stouts, lagers and ciders, some of them served by the third of a pint (great idea, means you can try 12 different ales without falling over), and they also served the most delicious chicken and ham and cheese pie. Nice staff,... More

If your into your real ale you will not be disappointed. The place has loads of beers on draft. You can have a beer outside in a small taped off area.

If you don't want your standard pub beer, and you want someplace where the staff know their beer then this is the place for you. They're fully global in their approach to beer selection and you'll always find a unique and delicious new favourite if you visit. #craftbeer

Great selection of beer, unpretentious surroundings and a nice atmosphere. What else do you really need? I'm fed up with the same old ales regardless of where you go in London ie Doombar, Tribute etc. Therefore it was refreshing if you pardon the pun to sample a few beers that I've never had before.

An awesome spot for an Ale fan, a huge variety of ales on offer. The hadouken was sublime, even if it was on the strong side at 7.8%😁

An excellent range of beers. It was very pleasant near the bar with more quieter seating upstairs. Food was available. There was a huge choice of great tasting beers.

This place has a lot of beer on draft and oftentimes has sum really rare stuff. (They had Evil Twin, Even More Jesus this last visit.) The staff is friendly and are happy to let you taste as many beers as needed, so that they can pour you a pint that you fully enjoy. This is a "must visit" for... More

With 37 beers on tap to choose from - what is there to complain about! The only challenge is choosing. Relaxed atmosphere and unusual mirrored ceiling add to the charm of this place. Can't wait to try the rest of the places in this small chain.

Nipped into this saloon on the way to meet my friend Foye Nutsdale and was pleasantly surprised by the congenial,although somewhat noisy,ambience.I had my pet pitbull terrier,ironically called Crafty hence my interest in the joint ,with me, so he was fed up at being tied up outside while I bowled in for a much needed light ale.After waiting ages while...
