A real cosy pub at a great location

After walking the south bank from Westminster to the borough market, this pub was a great place to stop , have a good lunch and some beers. Probably the best pub at the south bank walk.

Typical pub food and hardly anything exceptional I found it overpriced but it is south bank I suppose. Fish n chips ok, but the beer and atmosphere are quite good.

Popped in here after a tour of the globe. We had the sausage platter which was really tasty and brilliant value for money. Even better they have Aspalls on tap, my favourite . It has screens in it which normally I'm a bit down on , but they weren't noisy and it meant hubby was happy as could watch a... More

I had a reservation for approx 20 people - we stayed at the Fish&chips shop and played board games through the whole evening. The staff showed great hospitality and we enjoyed the tasty food & drinks! We really enjoyed that we could use quiet and stand-alone part of your venue, without being interrupted by other guests. Everyone really enjoyed the... More

Walked by this pub many times. Went in today. Good range of drinks at typical London prices + some. Food disappointing for the price. "Famous hand battered" fish and chips ... The fish was not fish shaped and could have come out of an Iceland packet. Generous portion of chips though. One of our group had a side order of... More

Our host in London recommended this place as we roamed around the streets and ended up here for dinner. Excellent view of Thames, fantastic beer and great ambience. Be prepared to wait for table and a noisy crowd but you wouldnt forget the experience.

I hope that the 50 something guy with the grey hair and the Irish accent isn't the landlord of this premises - he let a woman with an Irish accent push in front of me in the queue. He then allowed this woman to threaten me with physical violence - Classy place (not) and probably best avoided

We booked a table in advance for the festive menu for 4 people for an evening meal. We were taken to a restaurant upstairs where there was only us dining. It lacked atmosphere as you can imagine. There were plenty of people dining in the restaurants downstairs so not sure why we were put here. Anyway, the view across the... More

The bar keep was a very friendly gent as were the people at the door who helped me get in with my wheelchair. In fact the atmosphere inside was also very friendly. Food was good and reasonably priced. Service was quick and courteous and the bar keep even fetched over my beer.

Thank Mick W

Staying in Southwark

Neighborhood Profile
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.
