This has now moved to underneath the hop exchange on southwark street. There’s a selection of 7-10 bitters on cask, the usual selection of lagers and ciders. The bar has stools around it so at busy times it’s not easy to get to the bar even the the place as a whole is huge. Show live sports of 3 big plasma tellys. Good place to come for a bit of banter with the friendly staff, management and regulars.

Re-opened to its former glory and better. Great refurbishment, this could bring Wells and Young into the 21st century (maybe). Good selection of Wells Young products and micro breweries, good selection of continental and American beers, great atmosphere, great staff.

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.

Popped in for a pint and a bite to eat while staying in the area. Decent ambience - partially inside an old cellar with bare brick walls and arty portrait photos adorning the walls. Good range of ales - 8 guests. Bottle beer menu contains approx 20 beers from Europe and America but with few surprises. Food was good with big portions - burgers, wraps, steaks and the like. Friendly service. Decent place.

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 wasn’t busy but the server still took way more time than I would have expected to serve a few pints. Worth a visit if you’re in near the Market. This place would fit in well with a little pub crawl around the the area.

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).

Cozy place with a selection of 10-15 British ales - mostly casks in good condition. Friendly service and overall clean and neat. Very close to Market Porter and The Rake.

Large Young’s pub by Borough market. The local area is good for beer so I wouldn’t come here as a first choice but the selection was decent with a range of casks and kegs and itbseems to stay open a bit longer than the others so a good place to move on to.

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 we’d 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.

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