Description

Swish and stylish, modern development The Bower in Old Street houses happening drinkery The Draft House, and luring in a broad bunch of thirsty and hungry punters, this popular hotspot just oozes with atmosphere.

Split over two very differently designed levels, on the main floor The Draft House encapsulates an unpolished industrial feel with its characterful, unchanged Barbican architecture, featuring tall ceilings, space and raw, angular furnishings ideal for functions. Above however, its upstairs is decked out in comfy, yet contemporary timber and sprinkled with suede and tweed seating against natural hue tones, where you'll be in the height of harmony with cronies to crack open a few cold bottles of craft beer.

In terms of chow, come tummy-ready for a feast of British and American-inspired eats, which have been given a lil' twist to have those tastebuds truly tantalised. Complement your quench-worthy cocktail or pint of Pilsner Urquell with "Foot-long Scratchings", a "Pig & Hay Chorizo Scotch Egg", "The Poke Supreme Hamburger" or "The Monster Dog" to name but a few of the gorgeous grub in store.

Service, food and drinks were good, but there was a lot of confusion about the deposit for the table - it ended up turning into a tab without us being told, and the waitress added everyone's food to this without asking which meant the bill at the end was a confusing mix of everyone's orders.

I reserved a table by putting down £90 and the table was given away after being just 10 minutes late. No call to warn me despite the fact they'd taken £90 to reserve! Visited Draft House Old Street on 2017-12-20

Thought this an American dinner but is in fact a busy pub selling bar snacks. Not enough staff who managed well but were completely overwhelmed. Food was unimpressive. Chicken wings were just fried in minimal amount of Frankies hot sauce and the cauliflower wings just came dry fries with more Frankies as a dip. The burgers sounded quite interesting but although I had a Smokey Burger I could not taste anything smoky at all. The beer is good but would not go a second time for food.

Awful. Booked a month in advanced for Christmas dinner for 4 people. Some mains arrived before someone's 'warm up snacks' and someone's starter arrived after their main! Food that did arrive was not as described on the menu, was cold and far too salty to eat. Gobsmacked that they charge £30 per head for this. Even after we were given discount as compensation we we're thoroughly disappointed. Visited Draft House Old Street on 2017-12-13

We tried DH Session and Camden Hells draft beers....really good. Nachos were also good. What we didn't like is that it took ages to get attendents attention. They would hardly look at us. So we continued our night in a different pub. Visited Draft House Old Street on 2017-12-08

The food, drinks and atmosphere were great, but was disappointed that they’d run out of Nutella Donuts by 7pm as was really looking forward to them, but will be back again and hopefully they’ll be available then Visited Draft House Old Street on 2017-12-01

The beer quality was good and staff attentive and helpful. However the food quality was next to awful, showing a huge contrast between the freshly cooked chips, calamari etc. and other ingredients that appeared old or simply overcooked (the chewy beef patty and the terribly dry monster wurst being two examples). The buffalo wings were also very tiny and overcooked (texture was so hard I'd refuse to believe they were made freshly the same day). The bill, well, you put 12.5% on top of everything (food and drink), but surely as a drinking place you wouldn't normally charge this on beers? This bit surprised me the most as effectively all beers and soft drinks were charged 12.5% more than the prices shown on the well designed list. Visited Draft House Old Street on 2017-11-12

Very nice set up and atmosphere. Good beer options and easy access to outside for going back and forth. Most of the staff were very friendly and warm. One server was quite rude and dismissive, which isn't great when we were spending hundreds of £'s. But overall it was a good place and I'd recommend it. Visited Draft House Old Street on 2017-07-26

As the organiser, I was the first to arrive. I was a little disappointed that despite reserving a table for 25, the area allocated was really quite small and certainly not with enough seats for everyone. I asked for a beer menu and was brought the food menu (several copies) but no beer menu. Despite this, staff were helpful and able to recommend beers that suited our tastes. They were very accommodating with switching the tab card over once the bill payer actually turned up. Food was great and so was the beer - thanks for a good experience.

If you're into craft beers then this is the place for you. Very hip and cool interior and great location by Old Street. Had a birthday here and the booking went well.

The very worst bar in Shoreditch. food is old tasteless and cooked in a microwave . . What shocked us the most was the bar manager whhp asked two people to move was they were spoiling the view of the bar! These people rightfully lefty in anger .its terrible

Reply from Draft House Old Street

Hi Hoxton. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your time with us. Our food is all freshly prepared, so I'm terribly sorry if yours was not up to scratch, we usually check back and would happily change something if not right, i'm sorry this didn't happen to you. I am unsure about the move away comments as I am not aware of a time when we have ever made such a request, or why we would say something like this? Can you email me james.d@drafthouse.co.uk so I can look into this in more detail please. All the best, James
