Not a Rake, but a Small Bar
The Smallest Pub in London? - pay it a visit to find out
Location: 14 Winchester Walk, SE1 9AG
Description: Tucked away at the back of Borough Market, 'The Rake' can be found behind the blue paint job and was founded by the people behind Utobeer, the beer and drinks specialists who have had a high profile presence at Borough Market for seven years (2009).
And then there's the other thing...this place is small, spatially challenged it certainly is, with a seating capacity inside of 12 or so...
Somehow it also manages to offer a huge selection of drinks, with 150 beers and ciders from 24 different countries.
