After starting out life on an old Australian crocodile farm back in 1999, Little Creatures’ craft beer garnered popularity across the world. And now? They have a brewery and taproom in King's Cross. Nestled on Regent's Canal, the place is decked out with long wooden tables, leather booths and trendy artworks; it’s the ultimate hangout for freshly poured pints of all the hoppy beverages you know and love, as well as some special, seasonal brews.

While Hammerton Brewery originally started business in 1868, it sadly stopped in the 1950s. But like a phoenix from the ashes, it was resurrected in North London back in 2014 after a beer-loving descendant decided to revive the family name. From its taproom, you can sample its main range of brews, as well as special edition and seasonal creations. Boasting indoor and heated outdoor seating, this is a top spot to enjoy a couple of drinks whatever the weather. As for food? Chow down on freshly baked sourdough pizzas and tasty sandwiches.
