Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Mother Kelly's

'Tap room and bottle shop' located just across the road, but slightly hidden, from the Underground station and tucked away under one of the many railway arches. Similar to, but smaller than, its sibling down in Vauxhall with canteen-style wooden bench seating inside and more rustic folding tables out in the front yard. Excellent selection of 19 craft beers, a couple of ciders and a perry from the row of 23 taps on the bar-back, ranging from a pint of 2.8% Kernel Table beer at £5.50 through to a 1/3rd of the 12.7% Firestone Walker XXII Anniversary Ale at £5.60, but I settled for a pint of the 4% 'hazy' (as in murky, but deliberately so) Suspended in Azacca from Siren at £5.60.

A hip, urban and trendy 'craft' only bar set into a railway arch with plenty of outside seating at the front.
The service here was excellent with enquiries made about our preferences and tasters chosen and offered before we'd really had the chance to assess the beer menu. The choices were more hit than miss.
Prices aren't as ludicrous here as other craft dens I've visited although still well in excess of cask beer.
There were 20 beers listed on tap on our visit including offers from Beavertown, Cloudwater, Kernel and Weird Beard as well as a few overseas representatives from Denmark and Estonia for example. In addition to this, the whole left hand wall is dedicated to bottle storage. You'd be hard pushed not to find something worth drinking and we did but the lack of cask is a drawback for me.
A good spot but I'm afraid that cask remains my beer of choice.

Impressively large space in a railway arch,it's neighbours are restaurants and coffee shops,so this feels a pretty hip area.The wall mural in graffiti style is colourful,and along the opposite wall there is a rank of fridges with a wide assortment of bottled beers.The wall behind the bar has 23 keg taps,while the beer menu on my visit was offering an eclectic mix of 20 beers and styles from around the world,although London craft brewers feature large.The bar staff were very friendly ,and offered a lot of tasters and advice .We were told that there is a constant rotation of beers on offer,once a barrel has gone it will be replace by something completely different.Pricing is also not ridiculous,and although beers are offered by the schooner,half and third,the barman will serve in pints if that is what you want.The food offering was all cold platters of meat,cheese or vegetables,another tick from me.
I liked the good service and the fact that,although it's a bit pricey,it's not rip off territory.Just a shame that I much prefer the cask versions of some of the keg on offer here,but I might be tempted back to sample something very different.
