London Beer Dispensary

London Beer Dispensary

At first, this surprisingly big place (don't miss the gentleman's-club-style back room, or the patio) seems designed to confound the drinker: there's no bar. However, once you're used to that, this is a really nice spot for a drink. Cask beers come from the likes of Late Knights and Signature, keg from many of the craft-beer world's biggest names, and the fridge is packed with great bottles and cans. Also, it's next door to one of London's best wine bars - Mr Lawrence - if you prefer grape to grain.
