The Craft Beer Co. celebrates top Rating


The Craft Beer Co. which operates seven sites across London and one in Brighton, is celebrating after two of its sites were named by Rate Beer in the Top 5 bars for people to drink in the UK, including their site in Clerkenwell, which secured top spot, and subsequently named ‘Best Craft Beer Bar in the UK’.

Widely recognised as the most in-depth, accurate, and most-visited source for beer information, RateBeer members vote each year for their favourite beer, breweries and in this case, venues to enjoy Craft Beer.

It was a triple celebration for The Craft Beer Co. Founder, Martin Hayes, who’s original  pub, the Cask Pub and Kitchen in London’s Pimlico also made the top five.

The Craft Beer Co. MD and Founder, Martin Hayes, commented: “Being voted Best Bar in the UK by the users of RateBeer is fantastic recognition, not least for the teams at our pubs who work so hard to make sure Craft Beer is accessible to drinkers with all levels of knowledge.”

The news comes just a few weeks after the successful opening of their latest venue in London’s Limehouse and the first years trading at their site in the City on St. Mary Axe, in the shadow of the Gherkin.


The Craft Beer Co operates sites across London (Covent Garden, Brixton, Clerkenwell, Islington, Clapham, St Mary Axe, Limehouse) as well as a site in Brighton.
