This establishment is close to Burrough Market. We weren't hungry - but, people next to us stated that the fish and chips were good (they looked good). If the day is nice, relax at the outdoors patio and watch the river go by.

The food was ordinary but the drinks were extremely overpriced compared to other pubs throughout England. They also don't include prices on the menu for drinks so you are surprised when you pay. Large and good atmosphere but wouldn't come back because of the price.

The ambiance and the terrace seating arrangement dragged us inside. The drinks are a bit expensive but enjoyable. It looks quite old with a wide range of drink choices.

February and it was snowing and howling a gale across the Thames. We found a table and had the fish and chips and a glass of beer. The food and the beer were excellent. This is a very old traditional pub, with polished oak floors...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,

foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
