2014 rating 76. We hadnít visited for around 12 months so a look while we were in town was called for. Not as busy on a sunny Saturday evening as it used to be. Decided to stay indoors as we donít like plastic glasses. Hot and sweaty indoors, itís a drinking parlour these days. The range was decent enough and the quality fine. The beers seemed to come from the South West, which is ok with us. Still very much worth a visit.
2010 rating 80, Iíve been here a few times now, the approach through the old street market makes it characterful. The choice of beers has dropped off in recent years, but the atmosphere remains interesting. I always enjoy the bustle of the place and the beers tend to be varied and in good nick.

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.

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!!!

Pretty much an essential stree corner pub with nice wooden floor, walls, bars and everything basically. Good natural lighting ensures that the place is not too dark. Chatty, active locals make for a mixed crew that ranges from the beer geek to the afterwork suit and tie worker. Solid selection obviously. A classic, worthy London pub with excellent service.

Great selection of casks. Very busy but still great service. Rather cozy pub. Definitely worth a visit. Good location by the Borough Market.

Nice looking pub, didnít seem like there was that great of a selection when I was there. Nice, though I wasít all that thrilled. Good location, though, and worth a stop when visiting the market.

This is, of course, one of the main attractions for ratebeerians visiting London. A wide and ever changing range of up to 16 hand pulled real ales. The pub is situated in an interesting beer area with Utobeer, The Rake and Beer Wharf just around the corner. The restaurant upstairs serves decent pub food. We had fish cakes, Orkney mussels and prawns to a reasonable price. A table by the window really gives the guests an impression of the busy Borough Market on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. After lunch we went down and sampled quite a few well kept British Ales, all served at a very pleasant drinking temperature (Saturday, 1st August 2009).

Nice traditional english pub with a decent selection of handbpull ale. Close to Borough market. VERY crowded on friday evenings. But you can enjoy you beer outside also.

I brought my heavy plastic bags from Utobeer into this bustling pub. A little worn down and not the most interesting ales this day. I also tried some Meantime beers from keg. Efficient service. (Visited November 15th 2012)

A very good place, if you can hit it when the suits are at work. Usually 8 to 10 different real ales. And there are so many other good pubs within a few blocks, not to mention Borough Market just across the way.
