Quite a small basic basic interior as described below with a patio area at the side. 3 real ales and "craft keg". Bar snacks available.

This one has been pretty thoroughly described by others before me. The single inside room has just three tall and small round tables, with tall stools of course. Luckily they have a bit of outside seating, where you can enjoy the sounds and smells (fishy smells when I was in) of Borough Market next door.

Three pumps were clipped when we walked in, but one went off straightaway leaving a stout, and a 5.9% hopbomb called "Shameless" from Red Willow Brewery. No boring brown bitters here, unfortunately. But the Shameless turned out to be superb - I would rank it above the similar ABV Jaipur. Don't think there was any food - at least I didn't see any. This place is certainly worth a punt, but because of its small size it's best to arrive at an off-peak time if you can.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Rake

I also noticed an interesting array of brewers signatures, written around the walls, three of which were signed from Anarchy Brewery, Morpeth, Northumberland.
The owner/landlord was an interesting character and would happily spend hours chatting about beer. Three ales on handpump, we went for the Orkney Brewery Northern Light 4%, which was in excellent condition. I paid £3.90 for a pint of Orkney, which for this area was quite reasonable.
