Beer from the Brick
Why locals love it
Nestled in the corner of Holborn's distinctive Sicilian Avenue this little pub is truly unique, stocking only craft breweries from the UK and Germany. Behind the bar awaits a rustic brick wall laden with taps, and a long chalky list of keg and cask beers that attracts local office workers and language students alike.
Why you should visit it
You're backing a guaranteed winner if you head to the Whippet. The beers are unique and relatively cheaper than the central London standard. Grab a pint and something delicious from the kitchen, then head outside and enjoy the buzzing evening atmosphere of Sicilian Avenue. This small venue gets busy, so expect some rowdiness in post-work hours.
Read the chalk board carefully - some of these beers are bloody strong!
