I was looking forward to visiting this pub, not least because of its famous past but left feeling that the current management aren't doing this historic pub justice if our experience was anything to go by. Admittedly we visited on a late Saturday afternoon in...More

Visited here at the end of a long walk from Cannon Street. Great views from the rear over the Thames. Food was good solid pub-grub - well cooked and good value. Service was a bot slow but it was a very busy night for them

We came here on an working day afternoon, so the atmosphere was quite relaxed. We were pretty thirsty after a long walk from Canary wharf, and enjoyed a couple of pints each. Old but well kept, we loved the interiors and the view. Kind staff,...More
