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!!!

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.

My favourite place in London. Stopped in two or three times while in town. Great selection of casks (8-10 at a time). Gets pretty busy at midday and at quitting time. The beers I had were well-cared for and well selected. Fairly diverse selection of cask ales. There were also a small number of Meantime beers on tap. Decent selection of food as well.

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

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.

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.

Nice pub close to the Borough Market with a broad - ever changing - selection of real ales. Gets very crowded during the market days. Absolutely worth a visit !

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.

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).

Typical English pub at its best. Wood and bricks. Authentic feeling. Locals and tourists. Beer selection is about 8 interesting casks and about that much boring taps (but only casks really matters when it comes to judging beer selection in England). The type of pub that stimulates lively conversations, loud despite the low music volume. I canít comment about the food but I wouldnít eat there at a busy time of day. Probably the best cask selection in the Southwark area and one of the best in the entire London.
