Pub, restaurant, and microbrewery near Borough Market, part of Vinopolis.
Housed in a couple of railway arches near Borough Market, this pub, restaurant, and microbrewery is part of the Vinopolis operation.
Entry is past a covered outdoor seating area into one of the arches, which has some seating at ground level and then steps down to the bar and the rest of the interior (there's also a small lift platform for those who can't manage steps). This leads into the next arch, which has more seating and also houses the open kitchen. Finally, further in is the restaurant area, where one must wait to be seated, but which also offers a view of some brewing equipment. The feel throughout is somewhat clinical, not helped by the small rectangular floor tiling, reminiscent of communal shower rooms.
Kake visited on a Monday evening in September 2011. Although there are two handpulls on the long and rather sparsely-populated bar, only one of them was on, offering an in-house brew called Space Invader at a rather pricey £2 for a half-pint.
There were a fair few people in when I arrived around 7pm, though there were plenty of free tables too. I sat in the second arch, by the open kitchen, and the echoiness of the space in combination with the loud aircon from the kitchen made the place really quite noisy.
According to their website as of September 2011, food is served noon-2:45pm and 5:30pm-9:45pm Mon-Fri, noon-9:45pm Sat, and noon-2:45pm Sun. Note that the entire place closes early on Sundays.
