A convenient location for a Youngís outlet, right by the Market porter where you will go anyway, but not worth any detour for itself. the place feels nice enough, small and kinda homey, but you will want to switch over to the market soon enough. Still, if looking for casked Youngs and having a limited time in London, hop in, youíll find them in good condition and will be pretty time efficient.

I arrived shortly after opening so the place was empty. Thereís ten hand pumps available of locals but the quaility is simply hit or miss, with a few missing badly. The staff had a disintertested vibe and they didnít appear like they would be up for a chat. The pub itself is quite cozy and has a cellar type feel. Itíd be a nice place to drink with a group and not care too much about the beer.

A decent little cellar bar right near Borough Market. Fair selection of cask ales, reasonably priced. I found the service a little weak; I went around lunchtime when it wasnít busy but the server still took way more time than I would have expected to serve a few pints. Worth a visit if youíre in near the Market. This place would fit in well with a little pub crawl around the the area.

Stopped in here after exhausting the selection at the Market Porter just next door. The selection really wasnít all that hot, but itís not a bad place to stop in for a pint.

Itís ok. It was really interesting back in the day. It was a sawdust local sans sawdust. Had numbers of out of town ales. If you are nostalgic, itís worth a visit. The basic structure is still there, just a whole lot cleaner.

Not the most exciting pub in Greater London - especially if You look at the Market Porter, waiting for You only a few steps away ! But still a quite cozy watering hole, worth a visit if You are around...........

Nice basement pub with lots of little rooms. Went in the morning, so it was empty. Might not be so nice if crowded. Good selection of taps, though I only had a couple. Looked ok.

A pub that has moved from Stoney St., around the corner and a bit further up Southwark Street. The reemerged Wheatsheaf looks very anonymous from the outside, but the stairs opens up a spacious cellar pub with a newish and modern interior design. The long L-shape bar carries 10 operating hand pumps with interesting cask ales. My ales from B & T (Glider) and Nethergate (Augustinian) were in very fine shape. Polite service. Soft indie pop music. Quite likable and relaxing place at least early on a Saturday afternoon. I was in the area for quite a long time and can recommend the following beer crawl: The Rake, Southwark Tavern, Wheatsheaf, Market Porter and shopping at Utobeer (Brew Wharf was closed on this particular Saturday) (visited 30.07.2011).
