A place I used to frequent regularly in the late 90’s - late 00’s 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 who’s knowledge of the beer isn’t 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 ’12.

Giving an absolutely accurate rating would be pretty close to impossible for me as this was the last stop of a pub crawl. That said, the beer still tasted mighty fine and wouldn’t mind if I was back there now.

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

A big and noisy pub with many tourists. The selction had good variation, but the beers on the side of the bar were not as fresh as the ones in the front. The service was slow and the waitor couldn’t find his beers. Lots of ticks though.

Gets rammed pretty much all of the time - quite tired decor but good food and a fair beer range.

Too busy when we went (we had to stand outside to drink), there were however 5 new beers to sample, which was good. Beer quality was good, and the beers on sales were top quality. Nice sorta place, provided you can fit inside. Note: I attempted ot vote n/A for food, but it will now not allow it.

Ambiente tipico da pub londinese, non male ma molto affollato. La selezione non è il massimo e affianco a ottime real ales inglesi si trovano lager da supermercato. I ragazzi al bancone non mi sono sembrati troppo preparati ma comunque molto gentili. In generale non male ma in quella zona c’è molto di meglio.

Nice looking pub, didn’t seem like there was that great of a selection when I was there. Nice, though I was’t all that thrilled. Good location, though, and worth a stop when visiting the market.

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 you’ll 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 doesn’t seem to deliver the goods on aroma. Favourite days of the week to go are Friday and Saturday when the Borough market is jumping.
