“A country pub in the heart of London”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

The Cask & Glass is just enchanting: a tiny, fairytale pub on a Westminster street corner, its frontage decked with flowers and greenery, its interior a trip back to the age of wood panelling and well-padded leather upholstery, its atmosphere convivial and welcoming. Sadly, its greatest charms are also its biggest drawbacks: it's so tiny and so irresistible that it's usually packed to the doors, with happy customers spilling out onto the pavements in good weather. The two outside tables are highly prized.

It's so small, its only food on offer is the sandwich - although its toasted sandwiches are very good, and the staff will happily recommend local places a step away if you want to eat something more substantial. But that's not why people come here. Shepherd Neame, Britain's oldest commercial brewery, provides the drinks, to such a standard that the pub is a virtual fixture in the Good Beer Guide. No fruit machines, no games, just a real old-fashioned pub atmosphere highly prized by loyal regulars and sure to enchant any tourists lucky enough to get inside.

“The finest and widest range of beers and good food to go with it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2011

A real draw for anyone looking for good real ale in a pleasant environemtn with good food. Literally hundreds of beers from every part of thw world, with many small breweries and so a constantly changing menu. The focus is on the fbeer, foood and people so no broadvast sport or background music, just conversation and good company

“Hard to beat - Drinks only though!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2010

What a surprise in this part of London. Not touristy, not difficult, but friendly, quaint (small) and very pleasant. Aesthetically the place is just about perfect. The only problem is that it's so small that it gets crowded quickly. But no matter, the fun spills onto the sidewalk. The woman behind the bar was extremely helpful in recommending "Colonies" for fish & chips, right round the corner (as Cask & Glass is drinks & snack food only!).
