“Large, touristy Nicholson's pub facing HMS Belfast. Largely disinterested service in here for us. Packed indoors so we set up on the terrace. Nothing of interest on the beer front either. Not one I will go back to.“

“Visited 18/2/2019. Range of Asahi beers available (ie Fullers/Dark Star). Busy on a Monday night. Service ok. There’s much better close by but it’s convenient for the Shard.“

“So you cross Tower Bridge over the Thames, leaving behind The Tower and The City, and you walk past The Armadillo till you reach Hay's Galleria. Enough spots yet? OK, then have a rest at this very big, two-storied pub serving Nicholson's and some other brewskies and nice sea-themed food until late evening. Even though it's big, finding a seat can get a little rough, so arrive early.“

“Not the best Nicholson's. 8 cask ales on offer but all common. Taps are also common. Very few bottled beers. Oddly, has a wide selection of unusual bottled and canned ciders out of keeping with rest of offering. Large heated patio garden. Upstairs dining wasn't open on this visit. Service uninterested. Expensive. Sorry, but many better pubs in area.“

“Very easy to like this pub for its quirky setting and cellar like interior. Alas not an especially exciting beer selection. The house bitter 'old trollop' is just a rebadged courage directors. Couple of other taps. Good selection of Meantime bottles. Worth a visit for its atmosphere and ambience just don't expect huge number of 'ticks'.“

“Used to stop by and visit fairly often many years ago when London Pride/ESB was my beer of choice on way home from work to London Bridge and on last visit earlier this year this place has not changed much. It is a large fullers pub offering a selection of their usual beers plus allot of macro stuff, but can sometimes get hold of the “Past Masters” bottles here, but still not a must stop for beer geeks here.“

“Another old haunt of mine back in the day. Nicely presented pub but overall pretty standard Nicolsons fayre in regards to beer, speaking to the staff on last visit todays “mudlarks” who nowadays are certainly older than from a previous era still visit here pretty often, so still some nice continuity of history here. Not a must visit at all, but ok for a quick stop by for those interested in historical pubs.“

“Facing the river, this is a busy Nicholson’s pub given its position in this tourist heavy part of the Thames. It has a modern design, and more ordinary looking as a ’chain’ bar than other Nicholson’s pubs that usually have a bit more of a plushness about them, but given the clientele are very changeable the durability in the fixtures, fittings and furniture is understandable. There’s no less drinks available here though than in any of its other pubs, so expect the full current Nicholson’s list of changeable beers from at the bar, which is long and against the back wall.“

“Traditional pub a couple of minutes walk east of London Bridge station, with the service area occupying a large space towards the front of the pub, but is a little more spacious behind. I’m not convinced this is a Fullers owned pub anymore (still listed on RB as this at time of review) as I didn’t see any of their brews there, just a couple of regular cask ales including Sharp’s Doom Bar, and a couple of nationally available keg options from Caledonian Brewery.“

“Have fond memories of this place, because I’ve been doing a regular pub crawl with friends for about 10 years now and this was on an early (Monopoly?) one. However I was already pissed so was judging it on skewed criteria. Have been back a few times and I find I to be a public two halves: the bar itself and the eating underneath the windows are all very well presented. However the tables underneath and on the mezzanine are really just packed in and cafe/canteen like. The cavernous size does not help, today the front of the pub was quiet but there was a real racket coming from the punters penned in at the back. In term if beer, well it’s standard Fuller’ s. Could have some more interesting options on tap or in the fridge. Ended up with a boring golde. Also I note that the menu offers what may be the worst value and mist conservative flight I’ve come across: for just £17.45 you get thirds of London Pride, ESB and Honeydew plus three mini pies. Won’t be going for that! So a pub I am fond of but they could do with it and the layout doesn’t work for me.“

“The sister-in-law was in charge of a spot for lunch and of all the options she went for a chain pub. A smart and well presented pub, but a chain pub nonetheless. OK array of beers. Nothing particularly exciting but not just bog standard macro. Friendly if not overly attentive staff, talking to each other whilst serving customers. Nice enough but probably won’t ever come back, too many better/interesting pubs in the vicinity.“

“If you find Borough Market tiresome, this is a good place for a rb-rest. Atmospheric interior, interesting history, lots of good beers on tap (I tried the Adnam/Ægir collaboration "Longboat"). The menu looked tempting, but it was too early for me to have lunch. Very clean and modern toilet facilities (which is often a so-and-so experience in British pubs). Friendly service. Will have a meal here on my next trip to London.“

“Visited on 3rd March 2017. Situated underneath the main road over London Bridge this is a odd little bar. It’s got some nice trad touches and goes back quite a long way, it’s got plenty of seating, beer range was supplied by Shepherd Neame, had one of their hoppy beers on cask which actually had some hops in it. Quality was good, service quick and prices pretty decent. Better venues in the locality though.“

“A large Nicholson’s pub near the lovely Hay’s Galleria and HMS Belfast. There are some tables on a level with the riverside walkway but the main bar is lower down and there’s also a mezzanine level dining room and a cellar bar. It’s an OK place but not my favourite Nicholson’s. The beer selection is just passable - perhaps to be expected in a touristy area like this - but they did have a beer from the elusive Eddie Gadd (Al Murray’s Beautiful British Beer, also perhaps to appeal to the tourists). Unfortunately the beers we had were flat and not in peak condition. The service was rather poor too. If I’m the only person waiting to be served at the bar, I don’t expect the barmaid to grudgingly acknowledge my presence and then have me shout my order over to where she’s rooted to the floor next to the till. Especially as she had to come over to where I was standing to pour the beers anyway. Grrr. (Visited 18 June 2015).“

“A very attractive and elegant Fuller’s pub by London Bridge. There’s lots of dark wood and some etched glass, a curved staircase with wrought iron banisters going up to a balcony and the dining room and a huge chandelier with slender brass arms. There are five casks and about eight kegs, with a reasonably good selection which included seasonals and guests when we were there. There’s a large mural showing the charge of the light brigade for some reason and, more in keeping, Hogarthesque illustrations of “the idle barrow boy” and “the industrious banker”. (Visited 18 June 2015).“

“Large and opulently decorated Fullers pub close to the river, so much so you might be forgiven for thinking your in a national chain pub given the expensive decoration in this place. It kind of has to be like this to attract is proportion of the many suits crossing back over London Bridge from the city to enjoy a few drinks before heading home on the train, although it is not an elitist place. Set over a couple of floors it has a very Victorian-esque feel in its decoration backed up by the older grand room this building provides for the setting. I like many others found this place a convenient meeting place on the opposite side of the road to the Northern entrance to the station (London Dungeon entrance) and its serves a range of Fullers own ales. Given its location on the river it sadly puts no emphasis on that aspect of its location.“

“This is a big, touristy, and crowded pub with lots of noise. The service was slow but serviceminded. There is a wide selection of beers, but many are bland and a couple were in poor condition. I got my Jersey tick here, and that’s the best there is to say about this place.“

“Big pub on the southside of Themsen and just a short walk from Tower Brigde. Great lacotion and spacy and nice inside. Rather board selection of cask, sadly some of them in a bad condition. 2 out of 4 beers i had, had a earthy/mold note to them. Didnt eat, but options looked good. Prices where cheap for the location, but ill rather pay and have good beer.“

“Spacious pub near the Thames. Visited during the Wimbledon final 2013 and the beginning of the beerfestival of the nicholson pubs, so it was very crowdy. Good service, though, with friendly staff and great choice of ales and the more standard beers.“

“Visited several times, a perfect pitstop when touristing it in London, along the Themse, very easy to get to placed close to London Bridge. Very spacy place, friendly staff and often a great variaty of beers on tap, most time in good condition. They do food as well as bar snacks ( the traditionel Nicholson menu ). This pub can at times be a bit busy and crowded, but most times clean and tidy. For sure worth a visit if you are in the ares.“

“Large Fullers London pub on London Bridge just above Borough Market. Wide bar area and usual Fullers listings on cask. Didn’t have much interesting in the way of bottles when I was in there. Is one if the designated Fuller’s Ale & Pie Houses, but I have not tried the food. Not really a regular stop for me unless I’m after a seasonal.“

“Right on the water off Tooley street near London Bridge Station. Usually pretty crowded but a lively friendly crowd. All the beers have been in great shape every time I have been here. They have a very good selection for a pub that does not specialize in beer. Always a couple beers from the smaller artisanal brewers along with the bigger boys. And then a couple good quality pilsners and a German beer or two. Service is as good as can be expected, they are usually busy when i go. Never tried the food, but my wife says it is good pub food“

“Very central location and huge pub with plenty of Fueller’s beers on offer although not much outside their range other than standard pub offerings. Price wasn’t too bad, especially considering the location. Not much music that I could hear and very crowded on a Friday evening.“

“ Literally just under London Bridge on the south side. When I walked in I felt like I was entering a ski lodge or an old cabin or a very rustic restaurant in the French, Swiss or English country side. Old tools and random equipment adorned the walls in some rooms while vintage bottles of Port and wine in other more "Dressed up" Rooms. the beer selection was minimal but quality was pretty good. I had a Meantime Cranberry Stout which I had never seen or had before. A couple other Meantime beers on tap and 2-3 others on cask. Service was normal but as I only got one beer and the place was not too hectic, difficult to rate. . .the bar man was nice enough and I got my beer quickly and with a smile. Value seemed a tad steep but in central London that is tough to say. I did not try any food but looked like a nice place to get a cheese plate. They seemed to specialize in both really nice Cheese and Port. I will try it again if only for the unique atmosphere and closeness to many other pubs that I love.“

“Visited on a Friday evening, place was packed both inside and along the sidewalk outside. Extremely high music volume inside, almost impossible to run a conversation. Staff busy and not so friendly. Not a great selection of beers, but few interesting ones. Next time in town I’ll probably not return, not worth it.“
