A classic old pub, great atmosphere for a good meal. We had a traditional fish and chips dinner, which was delicious, along with refreshing brews. We sat indoors on the first level but with a view of the river and the gallows, a great location...More

Historic riverside pub, great view over the Thames and Canary Wharf, well kept beers, and a nice buzz downstairs even approaching 9pm on a Sunday. Drinks are reasonably priced and service is good even when busy but the food although tasty is not the best...More

First went here because it was a few steps down from our rented flat and recommended by the owner. Great choice! Food was tasty with ample portions. Atmosphere was warm and friendly. Unlike some of the more commercialized places we visited on our trip to...More

Possibly....but it's not terribly spacious inside with many tables crammed in as possible. It's not really a place I'd take very young children.
