My first real pub stop in London & somewhere I pop into if Iím in the area. A good range of cask UK scoops, though I have had a couple that were beyond their best but still drinkable. From my experience, it can get quite crowded around íleaving offí time but there are plenty of seats & during the summer itís fine to stand outside & enjoy the rare rays of sun. Service is efficient & friendly with pricing beind acceptable for the area. A fair interior if thatís your thing, closer to a ítrad pubí than other places thereabouts.

Nice traditional beer place just opposite to Borough Market. Mostly real ales on taps but also Meantime APA in keg. Overcrowded, loudy but with typical London reliesh. Huge crowd of drinking people outside.

In front of the lovely Borough market in Southwark. Very busy all day with a lovely selection and a beautiful ambiance.

Popped into this pub on a market day, while the market was in full swing. Excellent pub, 10 beers and 2 ciders on top, as well as the nitro stuff. Good fun and good clientelle, lot of beer being drunk, and 7 new rates for me. Good barstaff (the ones that could understand me) and good beer!

Gat place with loads of casks. Prepare to add new beers... Shabby and worndown; a timeless classical place.

I dunno - I was let down by my visit - only there was more beer engine than cask, it seemed a little crowded and suit-filled - although the luncheon in the restaurant upstairs was fine. And I got two ratings so obscure neither beer is in the database yet! Better than decent, but I wonít be back - Iíll go back to Royal Oak instead.

Great place. Wide beer selection and really nice ambiance, even if it is very cahotic most of the afternoon. To have a beer, I suggest to go late, after 10pm! One of the best places!

I used to work in Southwark Street in the sixties. Then there were still areas undeveloped after World War bombing. Today the district is utterly unrecognisable. The Market Porter probably hasnít changed much, except for the noisy city boys in suits. And Iím pretty sure the selection of beer is better nowadays.

This area has plenty of pubs but this is the only one you need to know about. Great food and a constantly rotating beer selection. After a few pints youíll be constantly rotating too.

Directly opposite Borough Market; this has a traditional boozer feel with wood panelling, wooden tables and barrels for tables. Excellent range of taps - beers from across the UK. The bottle selection is limited to commercial usual suspects so this place is strictly for ale drinkers. Plenty of space with an upstairs. Didnít try the food - if there is any - so canít comment.
