The Cask & Glass, Victoria

The Cask & Glass

The Cask and Glass is a busy and quaint little pub, reputedly one of the smallest in central London and an ideal venue for a quick drink before heading off to the theatre. It aptly describes itself as a country pub in the heart of the city; its pretty exterior is hung with flowering boxes and baskets in summer, and the two outside tables sit under the awning.

Inside, its Victorian origins are reflected by the dark oak panelling and the fascinating photos depicting Victoria Station, Queen Victoria herself, and the brewery trade.

It is loved by the regulars and local workers, including the odd famous face from TV broadcasting, who come for the great beers – the pub has bee a fixture in the Good Beer Guide for many a year – and the buzzy, warm ambience.
