Week days this place tends to get pretty busy with a mix of suits, and tourists due to the nearby Tower of London. Pretty normal Fullers affair but on visit last year one of the 4 cask pulls on was in pretty poor nik truth be told, but was happy to swap over to a different beer without question which was nice to see. Overall pretty standard place and not worth seeking out specifically.
Visited the 28th August 2015 - Decent place near to the City. Beers are Fuller’s with some other industrial. Good place, clear and nice. Maybe the music was a little bit louder but that was ok. Nothing special.
Standard Pub. The service was poor. Several casks were gone but the pump clips did not reflect this. When I asked which year the Vintage Ale on tap was from, the waitress replied something like: "I don’t know. Are there different vintages?". This is basic knowledge and you shouldn’t be allowed behind the bar in a Fuller’s pub, if you don’t know something like this. After that she managed to pour a full pint when I ordered a half. The other waitress was equally clueless and was dressed like she was selling something entirely different than beer. The only reason I don’t give a 1 for service is that they were polite, which is always nice. The selection was lacking as three cask beers were on, but not available due to technical difficulties, whatever that means. This was a really poor experience and I will most certainly not set foot here again. There are far better Fuller’s pubs elsewhere in London both in terms of staff and selection.
Great place. The atmosphere is like a traditional pub. Friendly service. There are numerous Fuller’s beers on tap, and on their beer engines. The value is decent, especially for London. Good overall.

We visited here on our Thames Tipple on Sat 20th October 2012. Ok so its a Fullers pub, but I don’t mind Fullers, in fact despite being one of the bigger breweries, they are one of the better ones (in my opinion). Pub was really tidy, staff friendly and service very good, ok so the beer range is limited but they did have the Fuller’s Brewers Reserve No.4 Oak-aged in Armagnac which at £7.75 is steep but its a good sized bottle and at 8.5% perfect for sharing, me and Ang shared this one. This was the 10th and final pub for the Thames Tipple and a pleasant one to finish on, on a day dominated by Nicholsons and Fullers pubs.
Above average Fuller’s pub a stone’s throw from The Tower of London. So named because of it’s location on the site of Tower Hill one of London’s major execution sites. Interior is interesting because of the large oil painting portraits hung on the walls and from a beer point of view they usually have a few interesting items that are not available in every Fuller’s pub. On my first visit that included a 2004 Vintage Ale.
