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.

Grumbo  (112) Ipswich, England | September 15, 2015
Visited on a Tuesday lunchtime (so was fairly quiet) but having visited other pubs in area previously, this one stands up well against its peers. With 8 ale hand pulls, a similar number of craft beers and lagers, plus a range of bottles some not often seen, this was definitely worth a visit. The warm welcome and good quality (and for London reasonably priced) food was an added bonus.

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.

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.

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).

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.

Fin  (971) Merton, Oxfordshire, England, England | October 5, 2014
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.

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.
