London has thousands of pubs and bars to choose from, meaning that it can often be hard to decide where to go for a drink. Luckily, OROGOLD is here to help, as we have put together a short list of some of the top places to go for a pint in London.
Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell
This Clerkenwell bar is a must-visit for any craft beer fans out there. The bar itself is simply beautiful, with ornate ceilings and plenty of light. When it comes to the beers, there are 37 on draught to choose from, with another 300 different bottled beers chilled in the fridge. The tap beers alone feature a fantastic range of breweries, not only from all around the UK, but also from some of the best brewing regions in the world. Since the owners have great relationships with these microbreweries all over the world, they are able to stock some truly unique beers, as well as some exclusive imports that cannot be found anywhere else in the city.
Euston Tap, Euston
Located in a grade II-listed stone lodge that used to guard the historic entrance to Euston train station, the Euston Tap is undeniably one of the best beer bars in London. With almost 30 different taps to choose from, featuring everything from wheat beers to stouts to ryes and bitters, you may spend a while trying to decide which one to order. If none of them appeal to you, you can turn your attention to the fridge, where another 150 bottled beer varieties sit. If you are hoping to spend a few hours here, OROGOLD would suggest that you plan your visit during quieter hours, as the place can get quite busy.
Old Red Cow, Smithfields
The Old Red Cow earned its name from its location – Long Lane used to be an ancient cattle route to the Smithfield meat market. Today, the pub sticks to its roots with a firm emphasis on meat, serving up a great Sunday roast and other traditional British classics. When it comes to the beer, there is a selection of 10 different keg beers to choose from, as well as 4 different cask taps. This may not seem like many, but the pub frequently rotates its roster of beers, ensuring that even the regular customers can always enjoy something new to try. While their choice of bottled beers may be limited, the one that are served are from some of the finest microbreweries around the world, emphasizing the pub’s focus on quality over quantity – something that OROGOLD always appreciates in a venue.
No matter where you go in London, you will be able to find a great bar or pub to have a pint at. Although the Euston Cow, Craft Beer Co. and Old Red Cow may be three of OROGOLD’s favorites, there are many, many more to choose from, so do make the effort to try somewhere new the next time you are in the city.
