Craft Beer Co.

Craft Beer Co.

Part of our Best Pubs in London microsite. See if we've included your local.

The West End instalment of this popular craft ale chain opened in May 2014, the fifth in London. The formula is similar to its sister pubs. Sparse furnishings but with a monumental selection of beer. With 15 casks and 30 kegs, you won't even be able to try a half of each, unless you're some kind of loathsome beer monster.

You've heard the phrase 'well-stocked bar', right? Well this is it.

The ground floor bar is diminutive, and most of the seating is by way of window stool. However, there's a larger searing area in the basement that helps with the crowds. The pub has also reclaimed a portion of the Endell Street pavement with some posh-looking rope, for people to stand outside.  Food is provided, as at other branches, by Forty Burger.

A recent facelift has seen the bar coated in blue-glazed tiles. A classy improvement on the turd-brown scheme that came before.

This place used to be Rudy's Revenge. The cocktail lover's loss is the craft ale drinkers gain.
