Good for tourists and locals!

Location: great. Just by the Thames, a proper "old english" building which has a good selection of ales and delicious food. Bit pricey to be a pub, for obvious reasons, but still, you're not gonna be disappointed. Unfortunately, unless you're sitting outside in the summer, there's not table right... read more

I stopped here after walking across the tower bridge. This pub is old school classic. The beer consisted mostly of Samuel smiths which is a plus in my eyes. Our bartender Jeff was excellent!!! We had such a great time chatting up the locals. I would highly recommend.

On a whim we decided to walk along the Southbank from Bermondsey on Bank Holiday Mondayand was in full "tourist" mode by the time we reached the Anchor. Being an unusually pleasant day for a Bank Holiday we decided to have lunch by the Thames - not normally something I would do but.... OK, after a bit of messing around... More

If you're lucky to get a table, you can actually order food. If you haven't got a place to park your bum, you can at least order a frothy brew. One needs to be in the mood for frenzy. Not exactly the place to unwind and chill, but then again, depending on the hour of the day, the whole neighbourhood... More

Taylor Walker's three-hundred-year-old Bankside boozer is a must for visitors to London Bridge. Great stopping off place for a pint of Black Sheep which is brewed 235 miles away in Masham, North Yorkshire but fortunately travels well. Handy for Borough Market and nearby Globe Theatre although no sign of Will these days. He's probably moved back to Stratford. Views across... More

Fish and chips with a brew on the Themes, what more could you ask for? The food was quickly prepared and was a very decent portion. Beer was well poured and everything was well priced.

If you happen to stop, get the BBQ Nachos. They are good. But overall, not that impressive... We also made a reservation, but when we got there, there was no one to seat us whatsoever. We finally tracked someone down who spent 15 minutes finding our reservation, and they didn't, so I had to find the email on my phone... More

Location is great and it looks a nice place. Drinks seemed expensive, but probably on a par with similar central London places. Food wasn't looking great when a chap on the next table informed a member of staff that his pie was still frozen in the middle - shame the waiter didn't understand. I chose a burger; it tasted ok...

Amazing pub all diff floors from sports to romantic to sitting in a rooftop garden with seaview. Roastbeef is carved with joy the yorkie is smiling at you and potatoes designed to make your tummy happy. I rate this place 100! Historically it sits on a graveyard 1600s and around the corner is borough market where the pub gets all... More

Staying in Southwark

Neighborhood Profile
Southwark
Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard, the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street, foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest attractions such as Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe. Despite Southwark's many popular draws, instant calm can be achieved easily by turning down almost any side street. For more urban buzz, a quick stroll across famed bridges like the pedestrianized Millennium Bridge or the ever photogenic Tower Bridge yields access to the very core of Central London. And with London Bridge Station as this neighborhood's main transportation hub, getting across town (or to anywhere in England for that matter) is a relative breeze.
