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.

We visited here on Friday 3rd October 2014. We were with my friend and work colleague John and his friend Allan and were off to a gig (Goat) at the Camden Roundhouse later tonight. You go down into this place, I guess like the nearby Bierkeller this is another cellar bar. The bar is ahead with a healthy selection of handpumps to choose from. I cannot say that the choice impressed me as there was too much dross in and amongst, there was however the likes of Goffs and Nethergate on tap which are fine. Its a tidy place, in fact weíd been here once before with Ang late one evening. Staff were friendly enough, like the Bierkeller its probably worth popping into if in the area and you want to see what they have available, but not somewhere to make a special effort to get to.

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.

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.

8 casks (4 changing). Quite cozy cellar pub. Not very interesting nor cheap though.

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.

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.

Nice cousy traditional english pub very close to Borough market. Heavy crowded on fridays. But you can drink outside and they have a beergarden you do not see from the outside. Recommendable on all other days than fridays. You will surely find a tick or two you have not tried before.
