Went there on October 2011 in the morning.
Classic look of an old London Pub. Great !!!
Unfortunately, the beer selection is mainstream.

We visited this historic old Thameside pub on the penultimate leg of the Thames Tipple Saturday 23rd May 2015. It is a narrow and long pub that backs onto the Thames with Wapping Old Steps running to the RH side as you look at the pub from the front. Inside the bar runs along the LH wall with four handpumps dispensing Marstons, Youngs, Fullers (sadly nothing that exciting) with a keg selection that includes Kozel, San Miguel, Peroni and Hoegaarden all rather safe unfortunately. The exterior both front and side retains a historic look but the inside appears to have been opened up, as I am guessing that this would not have been the one room pub that it is now, however I should imagine that this has made it a lighter, brighter room. You can get a sense of history but perhaps best to go outside to the small patio and look out on the Thames and Wapping Old Steps and try to imagine the scene when this part of London was in its heyday. Itís a great area, itís a pleasant pub but beer choice very safe and uninspiring.

Very friendly. Small but good range. Nice traditional pub atmosphere. Had food which looked good but did not try it.

Historic Thameside pub, best known as the place where Judge Jeffreys was captured as he tried to escape the revolution of 1688. A narrow pub with small patio out the back, offering 4 fairly standard real ales and some decent pub grub. Worth a visit should you happen to be in Wapping.

Fine traditional styled pub that claims to be the oldest along the Thames, whether that includes those outside of London I am unsure. What I am sure about is that this is worth venturing too, especially in summer if you can get a place on narrow rear patio that overlooks the Thames. The inside is just as nice though with the pub occupying a single room in a narrow building but lengthy enough to pack in a fair number of tables. The bar is central in the room against one wall and has two rows of ale pumps with a guest or two on them as well as some well known London ones too. Itís very cosy and convivial.
