I have known the Baltic for years and call in occasionally when I am in the Wapping area. They keep a great variety of cask ales, some of which are exceptional (try Wapping Summer Ale), but the venue itself has become increasingly scruffy - in spite of some recent alterations. I don't mind a basic ale house (in fact I love them), but the Baltic has become so tatty, it is no longer much fun to drink in. When I was there, the bar was awash with stale beer and there was a vinegar smell to the whole bar area. The rest of the pub smelt musty and some bits looked semi-derelict! Needs some investment and improvement.
