Dropped in on a Friday night in the mood for some ales. Got really good cask ales on draft. Grabbed the matrix seats by the fireplace. Comfy spot, good atmosphere, great beers.

Great beer selection here - loads on draft, even more in bottles. Not cheap but you get quality for the money. Could do with updating a bit but I guess that’s the look they’re going for. Decent enough outdoor area.

Well stocked bar with menu detail offerings on tap, pump and fridge. Tasters available. Wide choice suits all tastes with lots from small London breweries. Very welcoming. Perfect if you like real ale.

This is my local, and also probably my favorite of the Craft Beers that I've gone to, including the original Cask in Pimlico and the Craft Beers in Clerkenwell, Covent Garden, Brixton, and St Mary Axe. They have a few "house beers" on keg and...More

The best pub in the Islington area if you love your craft beer, a short distance from Angel Tube station on the Northern line. They have a range of 20 plus taps of quality changing beers from breweries I'd never heard of (and I live...More

Had a drink here with friends, who like real ale. Lots of beer on tap to choose from, but the drinks here are expensive. Fortunately they offer wine for non beer drinkers. 4 drinks came to over £20 and they were nothing special. It was...More
