Yeaaaahhh. The reviews below say it all. However, myself and three friends paid a visit here a couple of days ago and due to lack of space, had to sit outside on the pavement which is becoming increasingly more chilly. Service has been slowed somewhat in pubs due to the current crisis, but a 20-minute wait to get served is pushing things a bit too far.
Cask stocks 10 cask ales, which were pretty much all sampled by the four of us. As expected, the condition was great. I stuck to the Fyne Ales' Pebble Beach (£5.20 a pint) which was ok but is brewed with a type of hop that gives a slightly artificial Parma Violet taste, which my friend likened to bubble gum. His pint - name forgotten - tasted like Hophead which had been watered down. A pint of porter ordered by another friend tasted like a porter, but I'd not have ordered a pint of the stuff as I don't really like it, not having had it since my last visit to the Orange Brewery pub down the road from here back in 1999. And the Smog City's Quercus Circus Sour tasted, well...sour, like a beer that has gone off.
The other issue I have with the place, though it hardly came as a surprise, is that it's not really what I call a *pub*, lacking typical features such as a log fire or thatched roof; it looks a bit like a departure lounge.
I appreciate that this business has been built up by someone with a passion for quality beer, but I really don't go for beers that are somewhat avant garde - I'd have killed for a pint of Marble's Manchester Bitter or Blue Bee's Hillfoot Best.
Nice chips though...

Somehow, I’ve missed to review this one in all the times I’ve been coming here so time to put that right.
The main salient points have all been covered by a multitude of reviewers below but outside of its always impressive real ale offerings the reasons I will continue to frequent it are
1) Its always a good atmosphere and is a reliable lively bolt hole this close to Pimlico tube. On an evening when the whether forecaster was predicting Snow Armageddon hitting London the pub was extremely lively when we arrived at 6.00PM and was still going strong when the last of us left some 3 and ½ hours later.
2) The service levels are extremely high. They were coping admirably with the after-work rush when we arrived and although our first round included the final pint of Marble Pint, the beer was put back on in time for our third round and the other four beers that went whilst we were there were also duly put back on during the evening despite the constant demand at the bar.
3) The quality is always good. On this particular evening eight of us had five rounds taking in most of the beers below 6.5% and we didn’t have a single duff pint between us. Cask is certainly not dead in this place.
4) As for Mr Fastard below the beer range does seem to get better with each visit. Alongside three offerings from Marble (Earl Grey IPA, Pint and the Porter) were EightArch Brewing easy life and Bobolink Coffee Oat Stout, Fyne Ales Vital Spark, Magic Rock Ringmaster and Park Brewery porter to name a few. Some might argue that’s a heavy presence of dark ales, but with temperature level plummeting and Snow Armageddon on its way , I was OK with that.

This was my first visit to this well reviewed pub and I enjoyed the experience.The central pillars break the interior in two,with a large seating lounge well lit by the large windows,while the bar on the other side of the pillars is in the narrowest part of the pub.Overall the interior is a lot larger than appears possible when the pub is viewed from the exterior,which was a good job as this was a busy pre Christmas evening.The musak had been cranked up to quite loud,influenced by the festive vibe but the bar service was excellent so no long wait for a round.The eight handpumps were offering a mix of light and dark beers and ales were rotating at a rapid rate.Dark Star and Thornbridge ales always seem to be featured ,but the Marble Chocolate was reversed before I could even get an order in.Over the evening the ale quality maintained a high standard,but the lack of a notebook and the passage of time make exact recollection of what the four of us drank almost impossible.
We didnt eat ,but folk seemed to be ordering pub snacks rather than full meals,and the chips and mixed platters looked fine to me with plates returned to the kitchen empty.
Although real ale enthusiasts are well catered for,I got the impression that Continental lager buffs have even more to get their teeth into with a fine offering of draught lagers and the bottled selection in the menu book was impressive.We declined the opportunity to sample BrewDog's Tactical Nuclear Penguin 35% ABV at £45 or Sink the Bismark 41%ABV at £60,that may have to be a challenge for another day.
A pub traditionalist wouldn't feel at home in here,but this is a succesful outlet for the adventurous drinker and it's most definately on the list for a revisit in 2011.

A revisit has compelled me to award top marks.Nothing new about the interior ,the short menu burgers were superb but the ale range was out of this world.Featuring Hopcraft and Torrside (unfined) ales in peak condition with lots of quality high ABV brews,this was an exceptional visit.Be prepared to swing the bat at some challenging sounding ales,relax and enjoy.An absolute must visit if your care about ale.
