Bitter Phew was established in 2014 as a joint venture between Aaron Edwards and Jay Pollard. At a time when craft beer was not the powerhouse it now is, these two set out to pour rare, interesting and specialised beers from all over the world. Bitter Phew boasts 12 taps of seriously impressive brews which are constantly changing. It also has one of the biggest bottle selections in the city. It's a smart, small bar vibe in the front and a quaint 'keg garden' in the back.

And now, the crew has also taken over the space downstairs to create SuperPhew. The offshoot is skewed toward high profile natural wines, with a list curated by Jordan Blackman. The venue allows patrons to enjoy a drink or food from either in both, so you can escape the hustle and bustle of city life and indulge in something a little special next time you're on Oxford Street.
