Bucking Fastard left this review about Draft House Old Street

I've been to a few in this chain,and this is one of the better ones.A very modern building,it has metal chairs outside in the walkway,while the interior is split level.The ground floor has a long bench under the front window with small half tables interspersed and high tables opposite.Quite a steep climb takes you to the bar,there is more bench seating with larger tables and lots of drinking shelves.It's here you notice the industrial look with ducting,neon lights and a concrete floor.All very hip.
The deal here like elsewhere in the chain is 3 real ales and a real cider,with much more keg variety from 18 pumps from the likes of BrewDog,Siren,Vibrant Forest and Cloudwater.The real ale choice on my trip was Tyne Bank Summer Breeze (cheap option) ,Siren YuLu and Suspended in Ekuonot (brewed hazy,decent but inexeperienced barmaid jerked out my pint and pull a short one £3.80)
I suspect this can get crammed at peak hours,but I liked the vibe when quiet and the food comprising of hot dogs,burgers(beef,fish,chicken ,veggie)and wings wouldn't break the bank and would go with the beer.
Worth looking in if crawling the area for real ale options,I can see a revisit on the cards.

Visited this new build bar back in November but only now getting round to putting pen to paper. But at least my lethargy has allowed PSM to post an extensive review which tells you all you need to know about this one. They definitely move more Craft Ale and Lager to the target demographic of the younger Old Street Office workers here, but was good to see three cask pumps in operation. For our visit Sanbrooks Pale Ale was their Daily Cask Ale at £2.90 along with Charnwood Brewery Charlie Brewn and London Brewing Co 100 Oysters Stout. But even at £2.90 a pint there is so much Pale Ale you can take before the lure of the nearby Fountain becomes too great.

I agree with Pub SignMan to use this pub as a double header, with the Fountain so close. Three cask ales on handpump on our visit, Sambrooks Wandle, Siren Liquid Mistress and Gipsy Hill Beatnik. I am not a big fan of Sambrooks Wandle, so that was a no go. Siren Liquid Mistress was a red ale, so that was also a no go. So we settled for the Gipsy Hill Beatnik, which was a decent pale ale. The prices in here were dearer than the Craft Beer bar and a lot dearer than the Fountain.
