Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

First time visited. Smallest pub in Ldn I’ve ever been in, that said had a good seat inside and enjoyed more than a few Whitstable Ales, barman doesn’t smile ever 😁 which adds to the ambience. Service was grand and outside was packed. Will certainly...drink there again given the chance. 👍More

Called up on Thursday and spoke to Sally to try to reserve a table for myself and a friend. Was told table reservations aren't possible as there's only 5 tables inside but would be likely to get a table at the time I was planning...to arrive (2.30pm on Friday). My friend arrived first at 2pm and there was only one other table at the time occupied. At about 3pm we moved from inside to one of the tables out the front (I think there's a total of 3 or 4 tables out front) and by 3.30pm all of the office workers arrived and were spilling out into the road. Glad we got there early to get a seat! Enjoyed 3 pints of Spitfire each which were extremely well kept and were delightful! Will definitely be back the next time I'm visiting London.More

We were in London to see the Wicked show at the nearby Apollo Victoria - and I immediately thought of the C&G for pre-show drinks, having visited at other times over the years. It's a very small and characterful pub with a cosy interior -...we loved the pics of old London on the walls, and the sense of history. It's also a nice spot to sit outside and watch the world go by and, despite the huge towerblocks looking over and the noisy Victoria Road nearby, actually feels surprisingly quiet and villagey. There's a good beer range, and the girl behind the bar offered to let me try the beer before buying if I wished. If (like me) you're a fan of the cult 1960s TV show The Prisoner you're in for a treat - the house featured in the opening credits is literally behind the pub! I was so astonished when I first saw that, and it's another thing that makes this place so unique and special. I'd def recommend this small and unpretentious pub if you're in the area for a drink - looking forward already to my next visit.More

Traditional pub. Was very quiet when we went in at 1.30pm Beer was good. Toilets clean. If you’re looking for a traditional English pub this would be the place to go. Dwarfed now buy a new bar and restaurant development close by.

Everything you need from a proper British pub. Good laid back staff, great pints, small intimate inside and a few seats outside. Quintessential no smoke and mirrors.

I come here on TripAdvisor recommendation - twice. The place is away from the busy streets but it’s close to many attractions. Very pleasant, small and neat pub for a pint of ale or two. The staff is helpful and very friendly. We had very...delicious ham & cheese toasts and house special toast (served until 14:30). The place is close to Victoria and St. James’s stations. They also have tables outside if the weather allows.More

Cask and Glass, 39-41 Palace Street, Westminster SW1 5HN Mixed feelings about telling people about this superb pub nicknamed “The Queen’s Local”. Why? Because it is only yards from the back door of Buckingham Palace. It is said to be the smallest pub in central...London and it was really busy when I last visited. Alerting people to it could increase its popularity and brass off Her Majesty. One regular said it was a gem only known to those who work or live in the area. He described it as an oasis of calm. However, for the greater good you should pop in for a pint to this cosy, quaint Shepherd Neame pub tucked away in a back street near Victoria. I’ve been going here on and off for around a decade because it is a haven for good beer and chat. Continuity is important and it is the same landlord. Doesn’t say much and doesn’t smile, but the beer is good with brews from Britain’s oldest brewer on tap. They also serve snacks – it’s not Cordon Bleu cooking but instead a mouth-watering cheese and ham toastie - and there are allergy signs in the pub, but it is the beer people go for. It’s comfortable in the Cask and Glass, if you can get a seat, and there are some atmospheric pictures of nearby Victoria station and the brewing trade on the walls. If it is busy inside, there is always space outside on the street, a popular place for those with a strong constitution in February. Oh, and this may be busy Victoria but the prices are not sky high, another attraction. The Cask and Glass might be small, but it has a mighty reputation among those in the know.More

A very small pub but with a good range of drinks. Seating and tables even if your's not eating wich is a joy in that part of London. The food is very limited but if you like sandwiches with your beer it's fine.

A lovely little one bar pub ,with a good range of real ales.The bar-maid needs to go on a charm course and learn how a smile .However even her cold indifference did not detract from the pleasure of a good pint in charming surroundings.

Went for a quick beer after work but here's the rub..the staff want to serve you beer and make money but you can't stand there , or there or there...you can't have beer in a glass and you must stand behind a fictitious line to...allow non existent pedestrians to pass. Serve less beer or change your policy and for eff sake bar staff....smile...esp. old misery guts and his chief enforcer of the line "rule"More

Visited with friends to have a relaxing few beers in the late afternoon. Another small group also arrived at the same time and the staff seemed to take exception about the sudden rush of orders. Service was painfully slow and it was not helped by...the complete lack of customer service (the landlord turning round to read his newspaper and ignoring orders). There are better pubs in the area with friendlier staff - one to miss.More

This tiny little pub is great in the summer when you can stand outside (it’s a struggle in winter as it’s so tiny). Lovely atmosphere. Only problem with it is the staff, particularly the little man I presume is the owner. Never met someone so...rude! It’s near to where I work and I would go here a lot more if it wasn’t for him! Great for an after work drink but don’t expect any special treatment (not even a please or a thank you!)More

The Cask & Glass is one of those timeless pubs, an institution. Well kept and a popular venue so get there early if you want to be inside and the weather if inclement. It has a select and well kept range of beers.

We visited here while staying at The Nadler hotel nearby while in London to see the musical Hamilton. Lovely tiny quaint old pub, with decent range of beers. Lots of fascinating old decorations to look at. We had to stand up due lack of seats,...so only stayed for one while the 6 Nations rugby was on. The landlord seemed a bit grumpy but otherwise it did the job and we're glad we popped in out of the rain and there was room for us to do so.More

Not far from Victoria Station and well worth the walk. This has the appearance of a dolls house from the outside. Very helpful and friendly bar staff who know their trade.
