This is one of NW5’s best places to drink craft beer - you’ll find a changing roster with an emphasis on tap and a soft spot for London brews. There’s a nice outdoor space, and the staff love to chat about beer. The food, which is available in evenings only except at weekends, comes from a succession of popups, most of them street-food type places. Comedy, music, and other events happen during the week, but we like it best on weekend afternoons, when the crowds aren’t crazy-big and we can relax with a leisurely beer and a snack or two. Especially in the garden.
