|very nice pub and impressed with the specially crafted cabinet to facilitate 7 handpulls but £4.45 in a Fullers pub for a pint of London Pride seemed a bit steep. |

|Was going to call in this Pub recently to meet a friend on a visit to London, but a large group of football fans came marching up the street, chanting and cheering and walked straight in here, and to be honest, they were quite intimidating, and there was a volatile atmosphere developing, so we just left, and our friend who lives locally said it was better not going in there on football match days.......|

|Nice pub, excellent beer only spoiled by the TV screens showing football and the eye-watering prices;- £4.40 for a pint of ESB!!!|

|Goldings comments are pretty spot on - massive and impressive bar with a dining area up the grand staircase. Some very elegant (and probably expensive fittings) but why the TVs and screen - totally out of keeping and unnecssary! The guest beer was the very excellent Castle Rock Harvest Pale Ale and it was good - mind you at £4.25 a pint it should be !! Plenty of staff on when we went so we didn't have to wait long for service. Bouncer on the door but no hassle (no entry for football colours) but we had to leave as we had a child with us and we were directed upstairs - but it wasn't suitable for drinking only. Worth a look in as it is a sight to see and perhaps just the one beer?|

|This pub is like show home for Fuller's. I don't remember being in Fuller's pub that was so obviously promoting their beers etc. It's a fairly big old place with a mezzanine floor that seems to be for eating only.|
I went for the seasonal Red Fox which was OK, but... £4.15! Maybe the regular ales were cheaper. And Heineken was £4.45. This is not a cheap place to have a drink. It's location is pretty front and centre by the end of London Bridge and opposite the station, so I suppose that explains it. Still, that's pretty expensive for pubs round these parts.
Pretty busy when I was there with quite an interesting range of people from office people to young types in the early 20s.
The weirdest thing was the massive screen showing Valencia v Swansea in the Europa League. Why? No one was watching it. That screen and the other smaller TVs elsewhere in the pub surely completely undermine the Fuller's showcase. Very odd.
Having said that, I sort of quite like this pub's airy feel and I'm partial to the Fuller's beers, but... this place is just too expensive. 5/10
