My wife and I stopped in while visiting London. This is a great neighborhood pub with a very comfortable atmosphere.

They had around ten casks and around another ten taps. Most were British but they also had Belgians. They have a few refrigerator units of bottles which included a good selection of American beers. The bartenders were very helpful and know their stuff.

We had the truffle oil and parmesan fries. They were fantastic and the serving size was generous.

Cask Pub & Kitchen is a great place to relax and try something new.

I spent a couple of hours one lunch time in this pub as I was in the area. It's got a very good range of changing beers on tap & a extensive bottled beer list. It certainly has the feel of a place that can get very busy later on in the day, judging by the 30 plus people in at 2pm on a Tuesday afternoon. They only serve burgers from the kitchen, and on the pricey side. The food was good, but nothing special.
If I'm in the area again I might pop in for a beer but I would not go out of my way to visit.

The cream of the crop here is the bottled beer selection. There are US offerings here (purchase for on-prem or off-prem consumption) that one can't just go and buy most places in the US. Offerings from the local market and other countries (yes, Belgium, I'm looking at you) were in the mix as well.

The tap list included mostly locals, they seemed to be well rated options and varied to boot. Many pubs in the area won't have such a selection. Prices are agreeable and don't forget you can get half pours here in the UK pubs!

The food was somewhat limited but solid. You can pretty much be assured you are getting a burger of some ilk. A nice little array of sauces arrive along with your burger, including a really nice ketchup that's influenced by Bloody Mary makings.

And the bourbon list...you'll have to go see for yourself if this is your thing. If it is you won't be disappointed.

All in all, the beer highlight for my trip. I went twice!

A fine selection but certainly not world class. They have have around 8 cask beers and as many under pressure. They also have a wide selection of bottled beers. These can be bought for take away. The pub is nice with ample seating inside and out. Not too noisy. As is common sharing a large table with others is the norm. I chatted with a local and exchanged thoughts on some of the current beers.

I order a burger (the only thing really on the menu). It was average, nothing special. The bacon left a lot to be desired. If in the London area again I would seek out another pub before returning.

Went here about 5pm on a Friday night. The place was packed to the brim with people standing outside in groups with pints in hand. We ended up finding a place at a bar table. Most people were there for the beer selection. They have indoor and outdoor seating. They have a wide variety of local pump beers as well as a few draft beers. Tons of bottles. You also can buy bottles to go here. They have Crooked Stave and Cantillion bottles regularly. All of the beers that we tried were outstanding. Service was great. We got 2 different burgers with chips and they were wonderful. I cant say enough about this place. I would go back next time i am in London.

Went there based on BA reviews here and was delighted. This place is amazing. Sampled many of the cask and keg beers and knocked back 2 1/2 pints of excellent beer + 1 amazing bottle of small-batch recommended by the very knowledgeable staff based solely on what I told him I liked. An in-house partner beer (Double Inflatable Cowboy Hat (DIPA)) rivals the Dogfish Head 120. Went after dinner, so no report on the food.

Walked into Cask from an empty street and it was packed. Looking at the bottle selection and what was on hand-pump and draft I was quite impressed. The bartender was knowledgable and friendly and the prices were fair for the overall quality of the brews, especially given a lot are quite rare or generally unavailable in almost all other London bars or US bars for that matter (they even had some Kuhnhenn and Short's, which really threw me off). I also loved that they had many UK/ Euro microbrews available in addition to traditional local cask ales. As for food, we sampled a couple pies and had the scotch eggs which were delicious. Definitely recommend a visit and a must try if you're in London as they mend traditional ales and modern craft beer quite nicely.

I visited this place last April, after living in England for about four months. The selection is pretty good, and you can find beer from the US, Europe, and England here. The food was pretty standard--fish and chips for me and a burger for my companion. Nothing outstanding there.

The main things about this place for me was the ability to find a range of beers in the city after having been in Grantham for so long. I love British beer, but it was nice to be able to get some unusual stuff, especially the oddities from back in the States. The selection is pretty incredible by British standards. By American standards it is slightly above-average.

I visited this place on 14 June 2012 on a recent trip to London. This was my favorite pub in London. While Cask doesn't have the same decorum as other traditional pubs, this place makes up for it with their excellent beer selection. Cask is easily accessible by the underground transit system so anyone in the Central London area should be able to get there without any problem. Their beer selection is superb. Cask seems to specialize in English microbreweries on tap and also has an extensive bottle selection. My favorite cask beer was Rapture, a red hop ale from Magic Rock Brewery. C.J. was the bartender and was extremely knowledgeable about beer and can easily help anyone with their selection. Cask also has a good selection of bottles from U.S microbreweries. I told C.J. that I was a little jealous that they carry bottles of Alesmith (IPA, X, and Speedway Stout are the ones I remember) but yet I can't get Alesmith in Northern VA. While there, I also met another Beer Advocate member named Simon, who was also very helpful teaching me about the British craft brew scene. I didn't try the food so I can't comment on their food quality, but the selection seemed to be a a little better than standard pub fare.
