Yet another illustration of how beer in London is breaking through its traditional market boundaries is provided by this fashionable bar and diner in the heart of well heeled Hampstead, part of a group that otherwise consists of select cocktail bars like Purl and the Worship Street Whistling Shop. The small, narrow space, converted in July 2012 from an Indian restaurant, is clean and contemporary, with tiled walls, benches and post-industrial lighting, and a New York subway destination blind on display to underline its transatlantic leanings.

Two changing cask beers are likely to come from Dark Star or London brewers ike Beavertown, Hackney or London Fields. Anchor, Erdinger and Cornwall’s Harbour brewery supply the keg taps, while Beavertown, Kernel and the more specialised Sharp’s beers rub shoulders on the bottle shelves with imports from Goose Island, Odell and Old Dominion. It’s a smallish but well chosen range that’s clearly well understood by friendly staff, even though the gobsmacking variety of small batch bourbons and other specialist whiskies on the shelf next to the bar overshadows it somewhat.
