I really can't say anything bad about this place. Very nice pub, the choices are excellent and probably have the widest selection in all of London. Tons of beers from the US, many of which I could not even get in Boston. The service has never been anything less than great even when busy. Although I have never had the food, it looks good and I have a few friends who seemed to like it. Along with the US beers, a huge stock of Mikkeller, Belgian bottles, and German (draft and bottles) can be found here along with some great British Cask ale from Thornbridge, Brewdog, Dark Star and Marble along with others. My one gripe would be the prices, BUT they have gotten better and we are in a rather "pricey" area of town. I've been there a few tims now and will be Soon (tomorrow actually!) You just can't go wrong here.

Visited with my wife during our honeymoon in London and Paris.

Tried the following:
Stancil India Brown Ale (cask)
Prairie Funky Gold Simcoe (draft)
Pressure Drop Bosko IPA (draft)
Weird Beard Saison 14 (draft)

Beers ranged from good to outstanding. Was pleasantly surprised to find Prairie on tap. Service was prompt and we enjoyed our cozy table at the back of the bar/dining area. Food was good too, my wife liked her wines. Our overall experience was excellent, and we would definitely would come back.

About a 7 minute from the Victoria rail station.

Bright and window filled spot, pleasant and inviting with a friendly and knowledgeable staff ready to serve up the brew.

Boutique brews they are...juicy new school IPA, as well as sours, pastry stouts and the like...taps, cask pours, bottles and cans....bottles from places like Cascade, Grimm, Evil Twin and many others.

Tasty burgers and similar upscale pub inspired fare.

Well worth a visit...quality all the way.

cool place out of the bustle of central London

the burgers were pretty good, just a pub menu which works for me

the beer list is pretty awesome. the draft list is extensive and 99% English beers which was great for me because I rarely get English craft. the bottle list is amazing as well, tons of American beers I can't even get in the US

staff was super cool, would definitely recommend this place

Great beers and good selection for london but not as many taps as i had expected. great beers but unfortunately the fact that they also serve wine and liquor contributed to a loud, overly drunk, non-beer focused crowd but still a cool place worth checking out. also very impressive selection of american bottles

Can't fault this place. Probably the nicest of the Craft Beer Co pubs, with a good vibe inside, friendly staff, and a concise range of cask and keg beers, as well as more bottles.

One of my go-to places as there is a 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...but it has a good feel to it. Obviously good beer crowd since people are coming here for the great selection, but no special vibe to speak of. Service varies to be honest. I've had some good beer conversations with the staff here, but also had a very transactional experience as well sometimes. 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 traditional British pub experience. Casks kept very well.

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'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 ordered 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.
