Regularly changing selection of weird and wonderful ales on the 10 taps. (Recently reduced to make space for cold Meantime fizz, alas.) Never had a duff pint, and always found 4-7 new beers. If I lived in London, Iíd come here 2-3 times a week. Fairly usual pub decor. Avoid post-office-hours - filled with suits. Lunch menu was traditional pub fare, but the bangers were a bit sub-par compared to some Iíve had.

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.

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.

Legendary scoopers pub (look closely and you might see a famous "ticker" or two!), the Market Porter has had mixed fortunes. At its height the landlord had his own brewery in the building opposite, but then he left to run the George Inn and the pub suffered, though still retaining some interest in its policy of having a good range of guest ales. The pub has improved recently, enough to make a visit bearable, though I wouldn't want to eat here. This is simply a scooping pub. It's mostly unremarkable, though the room to the right and at the back is quite comfortable. If I'm in the area I will usually make a visit to pick up a few scoops.

Decent pub with a an awesome location. Nice massive fireplace at the rear and a selection of guest ales as broad as youíll find anywhere. If there is one failing of the pub its that the beers never tend to have any aroma. Cask ales are not famous for aroma but this place despite having fresh beer doesnít seem to deliver the goods on aroma. Favourite days of the week to go are Friday and Saturday when the Borough market is jumping.

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.

This place was packed most of the drinkers were standing out on the street drinking. Service at the bar is good and non exsistant any where else, but once I fought to get there I stayed. 21 taps and some bottles. Did not try any food. A good stop in that cluster of bars. Exspensive however.

I visited this pub on a Sunday morning. Of course, few people in the room, but what I disliked most was that it was ice cold. The Cask ale they served me was also cold. The pine interior was a bit shabby.

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.
