THE DRAFT HOUSE

The Draft House
Lordship Lane in East Dulwich is a lovely place to hang around on a Saturday afternoon (although you might get mowed down by a buggy) there are loads of cafes and pubs and North Cross Road just off it has a great market selling some amazing food (which I briefly wrote about here). We've been meaning to try out The Draft House for a while now so when a rainy Saturday came our way, we couldn't get our coats on quick enough.
I'm not a big beer drinker (I find that it often tastes like I'm sucking 2p's) but I am quite partial to a half every now and again and I'm really into the craft beer surge that seems to be consistently growing. Loads of nice little pubs have popped up and I have to say its making us visit areas of London we probably wouldn't have done before.

The Draft House
The drinks menu has loads of choice (a good menu to ponder over whilst having your first drink) plenty of draft and bottled beers with some that Steven had been wanting to try for a while. I liked that each beer came in the correct glass (shape, size and logo), which after working in a bar whilst at uni is no easy task! The food menu (although a little on the pricey side in my opinion) had the recommended perfect beer pairings for each dish - including the nibbles! How fancy.

The Draft House It turns out that there is a small group of them scattered over London, including one on Charlotte Street - good when you're out and about in Central and in need of escaping the tourists. It's not particularly cheap but we enjoyed our Saturday afternoon there, worth a visit for a good pint anyway. We're always on the look out for nice pubs like this to visit, are there any that you would recommend? 

We're heading to Euston this evening to try out a bar there, will let you know how it goes!
