The indoor restaurant was nice to go to with the kids. With bar and outdoor options to revisit when we don't have the little ones with us. Fish and Chips were amazing and drinks were well needed after a long day in London.

They very kindly me a quick coffee so I could take some tablets and could not have been nicer or more helpful to a lost little soul dragging a suitcase round town! Thoroughly recommend a visit to this cracking typical London pub!

Not a great pub. The drinks are VERY expensive, yet my glass came out with an inch missing from the top. When I asked the barman to top it up, he looked at me and said "really" like I was being unreasonable. None of the...More

Southwark
Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond

foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
