The Rake


The Rake is a London Pub in London Bridge area renowed for being one of the smallest pubs in town with the widest selection of beers possible. They sell 160-plus beers so do not  walk in and order a pint of Foster€™s unless you€™re trying to wind up the staff! It has a size of a minicab office but can squeeze in about 40 people. The Rake is just next door to Borough market, and is usually buzzing with market traders, shoppers and beer buffs. Founded by the beer specialists Utobeer, who have traded in the market for a few years, the Rake will not disappoint you, if you are a beer lover. Above the bar there is written:  'No crap on tap'. The tap brews, offered in third-of-a-pint measures for easy sampling, are merely the tip of a beery iceberg, there are also bottles galore from all corners of the world.
