4 out of 5 stars

This ever popular Borough Market pub is probably the smallest in London, with walls covered in the kind of scribblings you'd find in a toilet cubicle. Except the messages here aren't crude descriptions of congress – they're tributes from brewers who've found a place as passionate about beer as they are.

Seven kegs and three casks, along with two fridges containing a dizzying number of bottles, pump out a constantly changing variety of brews, with many ultra-rare ones to nerd out over (the Rake is owned by a beer importer). Among them you're likely to find plenty of stuff you've never come across before, and you can bet it'll all be good – the mantra here, outlined by a bright yellow sticker above the bar, is 'No crap on tap’. What it lacks in space, The Rake makes up for in spirit.

Rake says
In 2006 a greasy spoon in Borough Market was transformed into a speciality beer bar. Our beer range is in a constant state of change; seven keg and three cask lines, plus bottles and cans. If you’re unsure, ask our friendly, knowledgeable staff who'll be happy to point you in the right direction.
