Not a beautiful setting round the back of borough market by the bins, with outside toilets but there is a fantastic variety of beers available from around the world with friendly crowd. If you like beer and are in the area give it a go....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!!

Friendly staff with good ales and beer. The outdoor area is cosy and with a beautiful view of the shard in the background! The only downside was the occasional smell of the bins from borough market but otherwise couldn't fault it! Well worth a visit!

This tiny pub can get very busy and is packed if raining. They do however have one of London's best selections of beers. They have hundreds of bottles and an ever changing range of ale and beers on tap. I've been lots of times and...More

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
