To start with the positive: The atmosphere in this traditional pub is just great. However, they didn't receive my reservation and didn't want to see the confirmation I had in hand either. Staff at the bar also didn't bother finding a table for me in the crowded pub. The one I found on my own could have been a lot... More

Amazing venue for After work drinks in London, especially on a suuny evening enjoying the view on St Pauls. But a bit pricy and very crowded.

Why is it that the pubs with the best view of the river serve beer that tastes like it? Took an Indian client, who wanted a great pint of British bitter, with a view ... at least he got the view. Best part of ten quid for two pints of 6X, that we threw in to the Thames. The tourists... More

Very decent place next to the Thames. Brilliant for after work drink when the sun is still shining. Also had a good BBQ going.

Great location, particularly in the good weather we had on the day of our visit. Near to the Globe theatre. Nice glass of chilled rose in a plastic cup ( not so nice but safe) but food choices fairly limited, came in double quick time which is always suspicious ( obviously in and out of a microwave before you could...

Fairly disappointing pub. Booked in advance online but this wasn't necessary. Choice of food seemed limited but what we ordered was reasonably OKish. I had the worst pint of Waddies 6X imaginable but being British didn't complain about it - think it might have come from the Gent's urinals rather than the bar. Won't bother coming here again. Interesting to... More

Great pub, location is great, especially to sit outside if there is nice weather. Had fish and chips and was very impressed with the quality. Given the location, the prices were good. Would happily return again.

Close to Shakespeare's Globe Theater, it was a stop on my list of historic pubs. We stopped in for a pint and a glass of wine. The pub has a bit of a historic feel, except for the numerous gambling machines. Didn't interact with the staff, but they didn't go out of their way to be friendly. It is worth... More

the pub has a lovely setting just off the banks of the river Thames, close to many attractions very much a tourist pub. i had the large fish and chips, with peas, bread, sauces and a couple of pickled onions. the food was good and excellent value, although frozen chips is always a bit disappointing. great to stop for drinks...
