As a location it's excellent - particularly during the weekend when the bustle of the market is at full power. As a destination....I'm less convinced. It's kinda funky but not an overly comfortable location (interesting stools and tables, but I wouldn't say overly kind on the ass for a "session" and like the other 2 branches (there are places outside of London, you know) nothing to eat except admittedly good pork pies, scotch eggs and some kind of crisps. As a Brixton local, it's a really, really welcome addition if you like beer. The Wetherspoons around the corner also has a good cask selection but the low, low prices attract the all-day drinker and the food is, well, Wetherspoons. Lots of people like the Trinity but it's tied to Youngs, but I prefer the Crown & Anchor 2 minutes down the road on the 133 towards Oval as a destination. A similar range of beer and an actual menu (very nice burger, ribs and fish for example). Nevertheless, proximity to central Brixton make this a fantastic stop if you fancy one or two of something new or are heading to/from Brixton Village (nee Granville Arcade) and on a sunny day they've no complaints about eating market food outside (less of a bonus as the year rolls on, but...) If I'm wandering around and fancy a quick one, Craft totally nails it.. If I'm meeting friends and particularly if I want lunch or dinner too, I'd encourage them to roll on to the Crown. That said, the Ilkley Green Goddess I had recently at Craft was one of the nicest pints I've ever tasted Could use cushions and WiFi but very welcome. The other local candidate is probably the Canton Arms on South Lambeth Road (3 pumps, but really, really excellent food).
