Nice beer - mainly craft, but some real ales. This place is just too expensive. Luckily, the prices probably drive a fair few away. So it's not overly busy, given its size and you're left primarily with knowledgeable drinkers. On a weekend evening visit in November, the cask ales were Great Heck Navigator, Manchester Brewing Company King Cotton, Gipsy Hill Southpaw & Anorak Plum Mild. They also had Black Rat Perry. The highlight of this visit was one of the taps springing loose and a stout spraying wildly over the bar staff who were furiously searching for a bucket to contain it.

My first visit for several years on a Saturday evening in late May.

Always a good choice of ales on tap, this normally includes a number you wouldn't normally find in other pubs. There were a couple of choices from Arbor, I had a pint of Dynamo @ 4.8%.

I also had a 3rd of Single Hop Imperial IPA @ 10%, boy what a beer!

Busy inside but a lot busier outside where all the garden tables were taken.

The Rake is very popular but it's always a decent place for a quality and different beer.

Well worth a visit if in the vicinity. Like previously said a small pub but not as small as a i expected. You walk in and you are basically at the bar. There are 3 tall tables you can sit at and a fairly large patio area to the left with a few tables and chairs. Lots and lots of beers to suit all tastes. Some are expensive but the pint i had was £3.60 which aint bad for london. Lots of graffiti on the walls where people have signed on their visit. I normally dont mind stuff like as it adds character but i feel it makes this place look a bit shabby. One other point is the obvious enthusiasm the staff have for beer!

Not sure about going to the Rake again. If I can believe my memory, barman scowled at me intimidatingly as I approached, made a harsh noise as of a vehicle changing gear the wrong way, then in short order wiped his nose on his sleeve, reached for a glass and wiped its rim with the same sleeve, then poured my beer in the same glass. I said thank you.

My first visit here for a couple of years.

I love the Rake and their choice of beers either on draught or in bottles never let's me down...however I don't come here as often as I should as it's a bit of the small side and I get a bit fed up with not having anywhere to rest myself while sampling my well chosen beer.

3 of us came here on Saturday night and as expected the place was heaving...though it did empty out a bit after half an hour or so.

My first beer was a bottle of Partizan Brewing's IPA @ 6.6%...good wholesome and strong. We were about to leave when I convinced my pals to stay for another beer...this time it was a bottle of the recently released Brewdog's "Hello my name is Vladamir" @ 8.2%...what a cracking beer this is.

As always with The Rake, service is swift & the knowledgeable staff never let you down. Yes it is a bit on the pricey said but you do get beers served here that you would struggle to find elsewhere in London.

Don't come to The Rake expecting a large space to relax in as even the outside area is rammed...but you should come here at least once especially if you're a beer / ale lover.
