Drinking can be a costly experience – especially when you’re after craft beers – and it can be even worse if you’re throwing dinner into the equation. So we’ve put together a list of London brewery taprooms that you can bring your own food to. And you know what that means – more money for beer!
Price of a half pint: £3 each, giving you lots of excuse to try as many as possible.
Opening hours: Fri 5pm-9.30pm, Sat 11am-5.30pm, Sun noon-5pm.
What’s nearby: Maltby Street Market (where you can grab anything from hot dogs to oysters to eat alongside your beer).
Price of a half pint: Technically £2.25, although they only serve two-third tasters, which cost £3.
Opening hours: Fri 6pm-10pm, Sat 10am-6pm.
What’s nearby: Maltby Street Market – perfect for street food (BBNo also serve food in-house).
Price of a half pint: Under £2. (They say they try to keep all their pints under £4, so that's plenty of beer for your money!)
Opening hours:Thu 5pm-9pm, Fri 5pm-10pm, Sat noon-10pm.
What’s nearby: It’s a short walk from Peckham’s Rye Lane, so burgers and chicken galore. (They often host food pop-ups, too.)
Price of a half pint: £2.
Opening hours: Sat noon-5pm.
What’s nearby: Pop Brixton is mere metres away, which should cater for all your street food needs. Brixton High Street is also a short walk away.

Opening hours: Tue-Wed 2pm-9pm, Thu-Sat noon-11pm, Sun noon-9pm.
What’s nearby: It’s down the road from Camden Market, so you’ll be spoilt for options. You can also order to the bar, for those too lazy (or drunk) to move.
Price of a half pint: £2. Although it's cheaper to get a full pint for £3.50. Go on, spoil yourself.
Opening hours: Wed-Fri 5pm-11pm, Sat noon-11pm, Sun noon-10pm.
What’s nearby: Sitting just off the edge of Brockwell Park, there isn’t a huge number of food destinations in the area. Probably best to bring your own.
Price of a half pint: £2, or splash out and buy a pint for £3.50.
Opening hours: Sat noon-6pm.
What’s nearby: It’s a short walk from both Pop Brixton and Brixton High Street, for all your food-based needs.
