    If you like craft beer, The Harp will be a great spot. Reasonable prices, nice beer selection and cask beer handled properly. Usually you get Dark Star and Kern on he taps.

    This is the second time they have no mild on. They always had one mild on before the Fullers takeover. The recommended alternative is very nice though

    Peculiar spot in the middle of London if you're looking for a true British pub experience. An oasis of cask ale serenity in the hustle and bustle around you. Definitely worth a stop on your pub crawl

    CAMRA-tastic though don't let that put you off, they pick beers with bold flavour profiles, some are even over 6% ;) Often crowded, with good reason - it's a lovely traditional pub and quite unique.

    Heaving, and considered THE real ale place in London. Whilst the beer was excellent, the clientele were mostly rude and unfriendly, which doesn't help when the pub is so crowded

    Hard to beat. Beer is exceptional. Surprise your guests by bringing them in via the anonymous back door, which you reach through a tiny alley.

    Love how they make sure you're comfortable paying £5.80 for a pint of Kernel. It's feels like they're really looking after their punters, honest place, great beer.

    Beer obviously rotates but at the moment the Battersea Rye is rather good. Cider also good, if you don't have to get up the next day.

    Londra'da gidilebilecek en iyi akşam üzeri barı. Iddia ediyorum bu kadar fazla bira çeşidini başka yerde göremezsiniz. Biranın yanında mutlaka sosis sipariş edilmeli, mükemmel çünkü
