Had a very decent meal here - good service, relaxed ambiance, standard menu. This is one of many of its kind, but a good option in the London Bridge area.

Arrived with a mix of clients. Spur of the moment, and chiara whom I believe was the manager accommodated us. She was willing to give other options and gave advice on drinks. I can genuinely say everybody felt included because of her.

Called in for a pint of London Pride and a bite before doing The View From The Shard. Had the Buttermilk Chicken Burger and Triple Cooked Fries with Mayo. It was fabulous, as was the ‘Pride’...and the staff were really friendly and professional. The decor...was obviously telephone based and well done at that. I thought it was a really good bar.More

Last night we went to the Telephone Exchange with another 2 couples ( we are all in out 50’s). We were appalled to be told by the Manager to not laugh as loud because we were upsetting customers!!!’ We planned to stay there all night...but after that shocking statement we left!!’ Avoid this pub like the plague, if you like to laugh and enjoy yourselves!!!More

I was having a meeting next door and thought this was a convenient place to catch up with a City friend. The pub is pretty big and bright with old telephones hanging as decor. The service was prompt as it was the beginning of the...Friday lunch time rush. I had the salt beef sandwich with triple cooked chips washed down by a pint of Honey Dew. It was good enough for lunch. The place was OK but a bit pricier than other places.More

Guinness is good but expensive. Don't eat here as they say the toilets are a reflection of the kitchen.

had my family down to see my new play and took them to London Bridge to the London Dungeons Experience and we wondered around and decided to pop in for a pit stop. It was vibrant and busy with a lots going on and we...were seen to straight away, the service was good. I had salt and pepper squid, which was nice and a larger glass of Shiraz that came to approx. £17.50 including service charge. I would go back again.More

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
