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 !

Lots of unique cask ales but the quality level is generally mediocre. The pub is usually rammed, too. I would only recommend it during off hours.
OLD REVIEW: Perhaps the best pub Iíve found in London. The beer line-up is superb and constantly changing, the bartenders are (mostly) cute and amiable, the decor is lovely and beer-centric, the prices are nices, and the location is boss. I donít know about the food as I havenít tried any. There is lots of space at tables and at the bar, plus plenty of standing room outside. I stop in here every time I am in Southwark. Just a stellar place all around.

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.

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.

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.

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

Iíve been here a few times now, the approach through the old street market makes it interesting. 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 interesting and in good nick.

A big place old fashioned decorated with tinned windows, a fireplace, high wood panelling, and a big wooden bar, though a game machine sits in the corner. 9 beers on cask, 11 on draft, and some boring bottles. 60% of the turnover should apparently be from cask beer, but when I visited on a Monday afternoon, the scarce crowd was mostly cider drinker. The lineup of cask beers was not overly exciting - and nothing like Wenlock Arms on a Sunday afternoon.

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).
