Popped in here to escape the rain on a miserable Saturday afternoon. Two fairly young people serving who seemed more interested in their conversation but were polite enough. Excellent selection of beers, settled on a Belgian bottled cherry beer while my husband explored the draught...More

From J Boy of Derby Has the reputation as London's smallest pub, but what it might lack in size it certainly makes up for in the range of beers. Good selection of both draught and bottled beers on offer and staff that are helpful and...More

We have been to this place on several occasions in the past, but I had forgotten just how good it is. They serve some great real ales, both from the UK and abroad, with a great atmosphere. On this occasion, I was able to have...More

Great beers on the bar served by friendly staff who listen to want you want and can advise you on tastes. A bit of food is kept to go along with the drinks - try the black pudding scotch egg!!

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
