|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

|Midweek, reasonably busy, BUT the prices!!! Over £4 for a pint of summer ale outrageous. Won't return in a hurry!|

|Called in Tuesday evening, about 6.00pm. Very busy with the usual punters. Managed to grab a table and two stools by the stairs. Sat enjoying a pint of ESB with my wife, when a little mouse ran across the carpet. The mouse darted from under one table to another, back and forth. It's a good job that the female customers did not see the little chap, it could well have been bedlam in there. You would think that at the prices Fullers are charging in their central London pubs, they could sort out a small problem like a mouse!|

|Not many in when I visited so could sit and appreciate the interior and it's worth dropping in just for that. I sometimes find the staff at big London pubs a bit indifferent, but here they were very welcoming. Agree with the other posters about the ESB, excellent pint.|
