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.
