Great location in quiet and trendy Wapping. Amazing view to the Thames from terrace. Attentive staff and good food. Typical and traditional environment.

Food is better than average pub fare, but we waited an hour for food on a Wednesday at lunch. Although busy when we had arrived, most people had eaten by the time our order was taken. So we couldn't understand why it still took an hour to get pub meals out. Still the meals were good when they arrived, albeit... More

Only had a drink but checked out the menu..... top prices but looked good. A lot of staff about keeping busy and tables clear. With great views of the Thames and lots of nooks and crannies to explore. Worth visiting just for a drink

I went with my friends and brother to The Prospect of Whitby, for my birthday drink and meal. We all had a very enjoyable evening, with good food and a fine selection of Real Ales. CAMRA Members receive a discount on the purchase price of Real Ale, which is always very pleasing. There is a good outside area, also seating... More

What can you about this public house, other than there's possibly more history linked to public house than any other in the capital. The place positively drips with atmosphere and is a must if your visiting London, Samuel Pepys drank and are here as did many other historical figures, including the infamous Judge Jeffrey's the hanging judge who apparently used...

Very unfriendly and rude staff. Why don't they employ bar staff who like working with people? What a shame as the location and building are great.

This pub has stood at the side of the Thames for 6oo years. Believe it's the oldest riverside pub in London. Today it stands alone, in testimony to those times, whilst surrounded by $1 Million dollar apartments. Walking through the doors is like stepping back in time. Old flagstones that have stood the test of time. Upstairs, once the haunt... More

Disappointment abounded at the PoW (ahem), with a rather poor showing all round. The barman seemed upset to be having to talk to us, which might be why he passed us by three times for people who had just walked up. A lamb dinner looks exactly like one would expect from a primary school canteen; boiled lamb, about half a... More

One of the oldest pubs in London on the West Bank right on the Thames. Had a shandy and sat out on the outside area with a friend and watched the world go by. Friendly staff. Friendly crowd, and some really cute dogs hanging about.
