I've been a regular at the Cask since it re-opened in its present guise just over 2 years ago

10 cask hand pumps and 10 kegs

hand pumps are all british micro breweries on my last visit these included Blakemere, Dark Star, Thornbridge and Acorn

The keg taps typically feature Scand-Atlantic offerings from Mikkeller, Evil Twin, Grass Roots etc plus the odd Belgian/German and usually 3 or 4 American craft brews. Too many to list but Southern Tier crops up quite a bit. Had a Stone Arrogant Bastard the week before last.

On my last visit (this Monday gone, 17th Oct) all the Kegs were Munchen Oktoberfest beers

The bottled selection is immense - getting on for 500 I believe.

They advertise it as the largest bottled selction in any UK pub.

Food is good and I've had the tasty burger to soak up my beer on many an occasion

They regularly host meet the brewer nights from home and away, Odell's CO back in July and tonight its Mikkeller, also British brewers as you'd expect.

You really can't go wrong with the Cask for both quality and quanity

It is a little pricey - be warned!

The Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell is owned by the same people.

Pretty outstanding tap selection. 10 cask, 9 guest, 4 house taps. Tons of bottles too. The actual place isn't anything to get excited about...a large open area with tables. Obviously good beer crowd since people are coming here for the great selection, but no special vibe to speak of. On a Friday a 4 pm the service was good, but nothing special. Bottom line, if you want a great chance at great beers near Victoria, this is the place to go as long as you are not looking for any kind of British pub experience.

Great food and a great selection of beer. Try the pub pies. The bartender was extremely knowledgeable and had some great recommendations. At the time they had 10 casks running and all 4 of the ones I sampled were in excellent condition.

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.
