It's just a stroll to an old pub and there all happened. Rolaud was the host for the evening and he entertained us with stories about beer making. We tasted 4 kinds of ales depending on what's in the pub. Then the food was introduced and it was plentiful and delicious. After that we had 2 more laggers and desert. It was a funny and very satisfying way to end the evening.

I learned a lot about beer, ale and lagers. So interesting to learn about pairings with food. I actually didn't care much for beer, but learned there are ales that I quite enjoyed. The milk stout paired with cheeses and Belgian chocolates was a real winner! This was a nice small group, so, there was plenty of avenue for questions and conversation. Roland, our cask master for the evening, was super friendly, knowledgeable and interesting. The meet-up spot was tricky. I arrived with only 5 minutes to departure time and couldn't find the group. I ended up having to call the excursion company and the pick-up guide, Rachel, had to come retrieve me, but she did come retrieve me, so, that was terrific. Recommend arriving 10-15 minutes in advance of departure time.
Annie Powers was very friendly and knowledgeable. I don't drink beer or ale. However, I still participated and Annie treated me as if I was one of the family.
This was a wonderful evening spent in the company of Annie, the expert caskmaster whose knowledge of British Ale and food was second to none! The pub was very traditional and cosy, and was the perfect setting for the hearty fare we were served. It was fascinating hearing about how the different ales are made and what foods they pair well with - but it was even more fun tasting all of them!
This was such a fun evening. My husband is the beer aficionado but after the couple of hours with George, our wonderful host, I found that I appreciate beer more and enjoyed several ales during the remainder of our trip. From tasting malt to the final matching of a lovely porter with brownies it was a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
For anyone who enjoys pubs and beer this is a highly recommended outing. Our small group of three was the right size to ask questions and receive individual attention.
Along with the London Food Walking tour through Borough Market, this was such a good introduction to London and it's eating culture.
One of the highlights of our trip to London. Having a manager of a London Pub explain the history of British beer while we sampled many different styles of beer and Pub food was a fun and educational way to spend an evening. Learned lots about everyday life in London as well. Highly recommend this tour.
Great Experience in a local English pub. Phil our guide was real fun and Annie the Bar manager was really passionate and informative... I would recommend that tour to anyone who likes their ale and food.
Loved the tour, the guide, the pub, the ale and food... Who said English food was no good... It is a lot better paired with good ale and great company -
This was an excellent introduction to ale making and we really enjoyed the ale and the food. The only reason I did not rate this a 5 star is that the noise level in the pub was too high to hear the presenter very well. I learned a few things from this event and would recommend it to others.
