Visited around 2pm on Saturday 3rd January 2015.
Medium sized street corner bar on the approach to Tower Bridge, with a separate dining room to the side/rear.
Green leather corner sofas, mix of high and low seating, nice wall paper on the way to the loos !
The place was fairly busy, 3 out of 4 tables taken, but plenty of room for us to bag one for our group.
Clientetle a mix of young urbanites mized in with ’bridge’ tourists. About 4 or 5 cask lines and a dozen keg lines and an OK bottle list, decent enough choices but based on this visit DH Charlotte has a better range.
Service was prompt and friendly, quite a few staff behind the bar, no danger of waiting.
Decent enough stop if in the area but no go to venue.
Rating 78 Oct ’14. With our latest visit the beer choice has improved on both Keg and Cask fronts, reflecting the increased buying power I suppose. There was a friendly atmosphere in there and the Staff were extremely helpful. An enjoyable visit. Rating 63 Feb ’12. It looks a little dubious from the outside, but opens up inside to quite a comfortable area. Handily placed for Tower Bridge, it does seem to avoid the worst of the tourist hordes from what we could see. Intersting range of beer, if only on the keg side, the cask beers were a touch disappointing. A good place to visit and we would return.
Part restaurant, part bar, it is the latter of these that greets you first and probably the area you’ll remain in if you’ve come here simply to drink. The main restaurant dining area is to the rear with a large window looking out on to the approach road to Tower Bridge and obviously fills up with tourists throughout the day. The prices match the recyclable nature if its clientele but if you do venture here you will find a fine selection of ales both cask and keg and some lesser seen lagers too.
Located just south of Tower Bridge. Nice open space, large and decent beer selection although the kegs outnumber casks by a large margin. Didn’t eat. Much prefer this to the Charlotte Street branch, more and better beer and more space.
Had been to the Seething Lane Draft House so figured I might as well go past here on my way home. Quite similar but probably nicer inside. Smaller place though. Service was solid, nothing to complain about. Selection was solid, not quite as good as what I’ve seen at Seething Lane though. Prices were damn high. I guess location doesn’t help. Not bad though
Visited this pub several times, easy to get to when you just have crossed the Tower Bridge. Can at times be very busy, and eventhough its a light and spacy place, it doesn´t seems to have that many tables. They have a nice selection of beers, both on tap and in bottles, so for sure worth checking their bottle list. They do nice pubfood and snacks as well.
