in many ways this pub is the pick of the Craft bars.The beer is always in good nick,the bar staff are very pleasant and it is by far the most pubby of its group.It is still wildly expensive but offset by the use of lined glasses.Remember to look up at the glass ceiling covering the entire pub for the cost of a pint the bar staff will tell you its history. It is a little bit quieter than the nearby Craft at Covent Garden which is usually rammed.

Went in just after midday yesterday so quite empty. Range of real ales was good, and not too expensive, considering the area. Bar food seemed way overpriced, but then I'm not a trendy hipster so what do I know about these things? Worth visiting for the beers but best grab a pasty in the nearby Greggs beforehand!

You need to be a fan of Thornbridge brews if going this week - all bar one of the cask brews and nearly all the keg are Thornbridge beers.

Still continuing to do decent ales (usually priced by alcohol content) and pork pies (the trendy, and therefore expensive, kinds). Was seats here on early Saturday evening.

Conveniently located craft beers house a short walk from Farringdon and Chancery Lane depending on how you travel there. It is based in the gold/jewellery quarter close to Hatton Garden in an area where I feel retains its character. When work takes me to this parts I do sometimes make a habit of dropping in.

Great beer range as you would expect however, it is not the most comfortable of surroundings and like a previous reviewer mentions, geared up to drinking standing up.

Always had a good pint here but prices are very high even for Central London. I have been tempted to try one of the craft kegs but I object to paying through the nose for something just because it is trendy so I go for one of the more fairly (albeit still high) priced real ales.

I would recommend going to this pub however, if you want something with a bit more character and not so expensive then I would recommend going to the Harp or even getting the train over to Kentish Town to go to the IMHO far superior Southampton Arms. The real ale range there is just as good and you do not need to take out a second mortgage to have a decent session there!

Still rating this one as 8/10 though!
