“May be it's because iam a Londoner!!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

Asking some staff was a bit of a problem,because they did not understand what I was saying!The service was good and the food was good.It was a bit noisey but that was to be expected with the amount of people inside.Great river view.Kev x Tina B.

“Great view but slow service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

The view is amazing; can't beat a beautiful sunset over the London skyline. However this place is too crowded, probably due to location, and the service isn't great. I also find the customers a bit obnoxious- I was on crutches and no one offered me a seat, even when not in use, just 'holding' it for their friend who hadn't arrived yet... Not a great atmosphere.

“Great river views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

This pub is close to the new south entrance to Blackfriars railway station and had great views of the river. But, get there early as on a nice evening it is very busy outside. Good beers too.

“Great view of the Thames”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

I don't know how many times I passed by this place and wondered how crowded it was. Finally I managed to get there fora drink.

Really lovely view and atmosphere if you can manage to get a table and bearable weather.
