One of my favorite pubs in London. Located just next to the Borough Market in a place which feels a bit magical to me. Upon entering you can smell the beer in the air. People inside having a pint or two during their lunch break. Very good selection of casks, there’s always something to try. Food is very good. Lovely pub, would like to visit every time I’m in London.
Corner pub at Borough Market. Was once a real ale oasis in London. Still has a good range of cask ales from across the land. Service isn’t the best and prices are quite high. It’s usually busy and the after work crowd generally spill out into the street making getting in the place a challenge.
It’s a nice old pub and I’ll always pop in as pretty much guaranteed a new beer available.
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.
This pub used to be a great traditional market pub. In recent years it has been enlarged but still retains much of its character. A really good selection of real ales available but some times the service can be very indifferent and it can get extremely busy. On sunny and warm days there can be amny people standing outside but inside can be quieter.
2014 rating 76. We hadn’t visited for around 12 months so a look while we were in town was called for. Not as busy on a sunny Saturday evening as it used to be. Decided to stay indoors as we don’t like plastic glasses. Hot and sweaty indoors, it’s a drinking parlour these days. The range was decent enough and the quality fine. The beers seemed to come from the South West, which is ok with us. Still very much worth a visit.
2010 rating 80, I’ve been here a few times now, the approach through the old street market makes it characterful. The choice of beers has dropped off in recent years, but the atmosphere remains interesting. I always enjoy the bustle of the place and the beers tend to be varied and in good nick.
Very nice and cozy place, definitely the best pub in the area. Allot of real ales however not all of them are that great. I really liked the ambiance of the place with the open fireplaces and little noocks. The locals seemed friendly as well as I got into a conversation with a guy straight away.
