An excellent, often jam packed little pub I had the pleasure of meeting SilkTork at late on a Tuesday evening. Handpumps-a-plenty behind the bar with a constantly changing selection of Britainís finest real ales. The place was crowded and had spewed out onto the street, which I guess is its beer garden. Ales were in tip-top condition all served at just the right temperature and you could spend a week just sampling them. Raucous, friendly and various crowds, from suits to janitors all with open minds and a thirst for good ale. A great pub.

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.

Pretty much the best pub in London for range of cask ales - 10 handpumps (although 2 seem to be permanently given over to Harveys best) plus some Meantime beers on tap and more mundane keg and bottle offerings. The biggest problem here is the crowds (hence marked down on ambience) - its usually packed solid, although on a sunny day (like today) drinkers sometimes prefer to spill outside, leaving more room inside. Staff are generally efficient but few have much beer knowledge, which is a bit of a drawback in a specialist beer pub (although a relatively small proportion of the customers are beer geeks). Iíve never eaten here. The opening time seems variable - the Good Beer Guide says 11am, its listed here as 11.30 but it didnít actually open until 12 when we visited today. Donít forget the market and the Utobeer stall (if youíre there on the right day) over the road.

Nearest the Borough Market, in the beautiful Southwark zone. Enough crowded with some secluded angle. Numerous unusual and particular beers, a lot over the average of the other locals. Decidedly elevated the number of cask beees available. Essential furnishing and much typical of british style pub.

Very impressive on crowd alone. Went on a weeknight and had to drink outside (it was December!). Awesome selection for me. Service was just what they could do to keep up. Went back on a Friday to try for lunch and didnít even stand a chance because of the crowds.

Has a nice cask selection around a dozen or so. It gets very crowded on the weekend nights, but is worth checking out just for the selection.

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!!!

Beer quality has steadily improved over the years and you have been certain of a good condition beer here for a long while now. After the recent refurb the place is now clean and tidy and bigger and with more casks on. Some original features and atmosphere has been lost, but the gains are worth it. It is now less a market porterís pub and more a trendy office worker / tourist pub. Weep for the dirty old pub, but welcome the new. O, and the food is now more expensive and a little more upmarket.

Good variety of casks, which frequently change (I went on Wednesday and Saturday, and there were only a couple of overlaps). Nice atmosphere, and friendly staff behind the counter.
