This place was pleasant enough until it got really crowded. Massive numbers of people piled all around, inside and outside. OK if you like crowds, but avoid weekends if you donít.

A popular pub across from the Borough Market which on a good night youíll have to fight through a crowd standing outside just to get in, let alone served at the bar. if you do make it that far youíll find a decent selection of ales available. Set on two floors it serves food and its interior is traditional for an inner city London pub but slightly plusher than your average back street hole, however the traditional look is very in keeping with the historic Victorian trading centre appearance of the immediate area.

A great bar, located right across from the Borough Market (with the Utobeer store), it opened at 12pm the day I visited. Inside itís a series of wooden tables on wooden floors, with a bar that reaches around the bottom floor, showing off a good selection of cask ale and a few CO2 taps as well. Upstairs is the restaurant, where I had some onion soup with bread as I sat right up near an open window and people-watched the market right across the street. Canít really put a number on the selection since Iím not a local, but the beer we had that day was of fairly high quality, in my opinion. Good bar, no more than 1/2 block from the tube. This is a place I would visit again. Show up early or you might not find a place to sir downstairs.

Located in the extremely active market area. I visited a few consecutive days and each time new beers were being offered which was great as they were all new to me. Was very busy and seemed to attract a diverse crowd. Up there as one of my favourite pubs in London.

A place I used to frequent regularly in the late 90ís - late 00ís before the good pub scene exploded in London! 10 or so cask lines with micros from around the country. A bit samey in terms of choice, ie - twiggy brown bitters and golden blondes are in abundance. A bit dingey on the inside and always packed of an evening. Service is so, so, often young overseas staff whoís knowledge of the beer isnít too great. Once a go to destination, still worth a visit for some new rates, but has been left behind in recent years. Last visit Apr í12.

Excellent crowd spilling out onto the street, interior was spacious but packed solid. Good vibe. I was tipsy.

Fin  (733) Merton, Oxfordshire, England, England | October 21, 2012
We visited here on our Thames Tipple on Sat 20th October 2012, though I have been here frequently before. I have to say that I remain distinctly unimpressed with this pub. I always think that Iíll like it but it never does anything for me. However it looks great on a Saturday when the market is in full swing, the place is packed to the rafters with many stood outside. I donít have a problem with the beer selection or how it is kept, I just donít really warm to the pub when I feel that I should, its hard to get served, you struggle to find a seat and it seems a bit too dark and dingy, but I guess that shows it is popular and hey dark and dingy can be called character. However itís got a good reputation and as I said it looks lovely especially from the outside and you would like to see this place continue to flourish for many years to come.

Way too busy on my visit. Lots of casks, which of course is the appeal. The place looked nice on my limited stay indoors (we were drinking outside). A couple of the beers, though, were off.

Lots of unique cask ales but the quality level is generally mediocre. The pub is usually rammed, too. I would only recommend it during off hours.

OLD REVIEW: Perhaps the best pub Iíve found in London. The beer line-up is superb and constantly changing, the bartenders are (mostly) cute and amiable, the decor is lovely and beer-centric, the prices are nices, and the location is boss. I donít know about the food as I havenít tried any. There is lots of space at tables and at the bar, plus plenty of standing room outside. I stop in here every time I am in Southwark. Just a stellar place all around.

I like the location (Southwark) and I have a beautiful picture from the road; very typical place. The best thing is that they have about 12 cask ales, and they change them very frequently. The staff has been quite helpful. Itís almost impossible to eat, as they close the kitchen at 3pm!!!
