I popped in here en route from the Dean Swift to the nearest tube station, in order to get to Kentish Town. Given that the nearest station was closed, it’s a good job I’d taken on liquid here, as the walk nearly killed me. Anyway, I rather liked this place, the choices on tap were varied and all new for a poor Birmingham citizen like me. Big, airy and with classic continetal beer posters on the wall, which I love. Great stuff. Really good.
Basically on the bridge as soon as off the water, this spacious well luminous pub has a wide selection of craft kegs, including several sours from Northern Monk, Tiny Rebel, Chorlton. Focus is on UK craft. Interesting selection with some latest releases and possibility of thirds. Several ticks on my odd visit, ok value and food menù more interesting than most craft beer pubs in London. Will return when in the area.
After a long walk in some rare UK sunshine along the south bank from London Eye to Tower Bridge, a visit to the Draft House on arrival at Tower Bridge was most welcome. The range of taps and bottles is extensive, eclectic, and not as expensive as I’ve seen elsewhere. Service was good, the place has a semi-modern feel mixed with a 50’s diner feel in the restaurant area which serves decent selection of food with a Mexi Cali bias. My first visit. Will be back.
Tower Bridge location. Only 4 casks of english ale, but very good ones. Food and interior are awesome. Feels more like a restaurant with an attention on good beer. Thumbs up for the Ghostbusters wallpaper in the staircase leading to the bathrooms.
What did I find here? This was a great place, and in my mind the best on the bridge. The service and the knowlage of the beers is outstanding. If Rob is there seek him out. The selection is not just the number of beers but what is selected for sale. The best place near the London Bridge.
This place has really grown on me. Spacious, light and airy. Good service and a good selection of bottles and pretty decent tap selection. A great place to spend an evening away from the maddening crowds on the city side of the bridge.

Modern bar like interior with a good selection of ales, including several from Camden and three weisses. Plenty of bottled lagers from Europe and America. Perhaps not as cosy as the nearby Dean Swift but the selection here means both are essential visits.
The Draft House is a large modern-looking bar located just past Tower Bridge. Spacious and full of long tables, much bigger than its sister pub in Clapham. Big selection of keg, cask and bottle on offer. Includes the likes of Harviestoun, Dark Star, Sierra Nevada etc. Maybe a bit too many light fizzy options, but interesting brews also. Had Big Foot on keg, which was brilliant and fresh. Kernel bottles in the fridge always make me happy. Staff were friendly and I like how they serve thirds. Hit this on the way to/from Dean Swift.
