For a beer lover this is definately a must go. Great tap list and a vast variety of bottles. May be a bit shabby, but who cares as long as the beers are excellent and the crowd friendly. Would go there again whenever possible.

Not a beautiful setting round the back of borough market by the bins, with outside toilets but there is a fantastic variety of beers available from around the world with friendly crowd. If you like beer and are in the area give it a go....More

From J Boy of Derby Has the reputation as London's smallest pub, but what it might lack in size it certainly makes up for in the range of beers. Good selection of both draught and bottled beers on offer and staff that are helpful and...More

We have been to this place on several occasions in the past, but I had forgotten just how good it is. They serve some great real ales, both from the UK and abroad, with a great atmosphere. On this occasion, I was able to have...More

Great beers on the bar served by friendly staff who listen to want you want and can advise you on tastes. A bit of food is kept to go along with the drinks - try the black pudding scotch egg!!

Southwark

the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some

browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
