Holborn Whippet

Finally made it to the Holborn Whippet that opened a couple of months ago, and this is what I had:


Oldersham – Heavenly Blonde. This amazingly fresh and hoppy beer made the rain outside seem like a distant memory. 5/5.

10 Bells, Shoreditch

We walked here after a heavy brunch at the Worker’s Cafe in Islington. I had the two halves below while the girls had some fresh lime and soda.


First I had the Truman’s – Runner. It’s a tasty ruby beer, with hints of mild. 4 / 5.


Then followed Truman’s – Swallow And Swift. This is a beautiful amber golden beer with a surprisingly smooth taste. Lots of biscuit and a subtle warmth of ginger. 5 / 5.
