Nice traditional beer place just opposite to Borough Market. Mostly real ales on taps but also Meantime APA in keg. Overcrowded, loudy but with typical London reliesh. Huge crowd of drinking people outside.

A very pleasant and sociable pub. It’s clean place. We were there in the morning, but there where already a lot of people in the pub. They ’ve got a lot a different beers . The staff is very friendly. Next time in London, we’ll go back, to enjoy more beers and the meal.
Worth a wonder down if you’re on the South Bank, some decent beers, solid rather than exciting, weekday afternoon was busy so I can imagine how hellish it could be at weekends, food was basic but filling,
Rammed full when we were there, but i suppose it was a sat afternoon, we had to stand about 10m down the road to get out of peoples way, most of the people were actually standing in the street anyway. Only saw 6 hand pulls and couldnt see a board with beers on which seemed unusal to me, as if you cant see all the beers from one view surely you should list the ones you cant see on a chalk board somewhere? Anyway a pritty standard pub alround.
Too busy when we went (we had to stand outside to drink), there were however 5 new beers to sample, which was good. Beer quality was good, and the beers on sales were top quality. Nice sorta place, provided you can fit inside. Note: I attempted ot vote n/A for food, but it will now not allow it.
My first real pub stop in London & somewhere I pop into if I’m in the area. A good range of cask UK scoops, though I have had a couple that were beyond their best but still drinkable. From my experience, it can get quite crowded around ’leaving off’ time but there are plenty of seats & during the summer it’s fine to stand outside & enjoy the rare rays of sun. Service is efficient & friendly with pricing beind acceptable for the area. A fair interior if that’s your thing, closer to a ’trad pub’ than other places thereabouts.

Very nice Pub in Borough Market. Very busy most of the times. Some typical taps but also a nice selection of Casks (I was lucky the day we went with MagicDave6 and Mes and the selection was very good). a Must place to visit when in London.

Cozy afterworkplace and indeed a must. Lines of cask ales for hours of swallowing. I will visit again. Next to Borough market!

Like this place a lot, and like it even better since they expanded the interior and more importantly increased the amount of casks which they have (over 10). Quality of the casks always seems to be quite good, but they must have a pretty good rotation of casks as its always pretty busy, especially on market days. A good place to try new beers.
