What I love about this place is that there is always something going on. Buzzy, busy pub. Might be too noisy for some people but IT IS A PUB. Live music give the whole placr the right atmosphere.

Stumbled into this gem yesterday and had the most amazing evening. I am not a beer person but had a mango one, so different and delicious, a bit spicy, a great choice. The place is lovely, the decor, the staff and then came the jazz, this two playing piano and trumpet made our night. Left at 11 but only because... More

We visit the place looking for some good ales! They have a wide variety and the staff was really kind! The place is really comfortable and seems really authentic

Dropped in for a pre dinner drink which gave us time to try a couple of the superb beers on offer from this little gem of a pub. Just wish we lived nearby as it would definitely become a regular place to go!

Great pub that trades the typical trappings of most "english pubs" in London for one of the best craft beer selections we encountered in the city.

I've been to a few Craft Beer Co pubs now but I think this is my favourite. It's quite small witha fairly compact bar area but that does not mean the beer selection is any less impressive. Usually at least 10 interesting beers on keg and a huge array of bottled beer so you can't run out of flavours to... More

You find Craft Beer Co Islington in a somewhat out of the way location, ten minutes walk from Angel tube station. The bar is small with plenty craft beers on offer, this in combination with a busy pub.
