Another nice Sam smith pub. Has a pool table a little outside area and little cubby wood panelled areas to have a nice pint. Also decently priced beer. Well worth a visit.

Beautiful hand drawn ale from wooden cask with great banter from James to make any cloudy London day seem bright

It was not easy to find good/not overcrowded/not very expensive place to eat near the Tower Bridge. Fortunately we've found The Anchor Tap. Beer (Ale) is excellent, food is tasty, pies are great. So I would recommend this place to everyone

Definitely worth a stop on a Sunday afternoon crawl round the area. This is a traditional pub with a nice selection of beers. Oak cask bitter is great and the chocolate beer is worth a try as well.

I would be surprised if not. I don't recall a children's menu as they will probably do scaled down versions of adult meals.
