Easily my best pub of the moment and an easy winner for my best pub in October.
The Cask in Pimlico/Victoria has only been open in its current format for about a year but has quickly become one of the best pubs in the capital.
The bank of handpumps has grown quickly and now numbers ten. However, the is no brewed-in-a-bucket microbreweries here. The beers are cherry picked from some of the finest breweries in the country. Dark Star, Thornbridge and Brewdog beers are regulars and the guests are from other reputable outfits such as Marble.
There are regular meet the brewer evenings and the food is very good too with a menu that changes with the seasons.
If ten handpulls in insufficient there is a fridge crammed full of other bottled beers from around the world and also a bank of keg taps with some of Europe's finest lagers. Something for everyone and easily my favourite pub I have visited in October.
