Based at the bottom of a tower block this is a very odd pub, which trades on irony with a heavy dose of kitsch in the furnishings. We visited the day that Cliff Richards' gaff was raided by the police, and they were playing the signature tune to Jim'll Fix It. Clientele is very hip, very new Southwark. It's also very difficult to work out which is the Ladies and which is the Gents. Only one real ale (Adnams Lighthouse) on offer, and I'm afraid it was metallic; clearly it had been a while since the pipes were cleaned. Interesting pub - I suspect you'll love or or hate it.

Interesting pub/cafe type establisment. No real ale on my visit, but plenty of lager choices. Food on offer included horse meat burgers. Mmmmm

Yes.A quirky pub with a mainly,but not exclusively, young crowed.The clientelle is pretty intelligent,friendly and sophisticated.Good conversation is easy to find here.Good service from the long haired barman.Beer choice somewhat lacklustre with the usual boring lagers.A well kept guest ale and a real cider from London however when i was there made amends.Bottled beer choice is unimaginative when there are so many exciting bottled beers about,from all over the world.Heh,i'm picking faults with what is a great little pub.

I popped into this pub on the recent recommendations. There was no Real Ale on. The bar man explained that the one beer that they had on hand pump, had run out earlier in the day.
I didn't stop.

A funny one this. I worked for 9 months immediately opposite this boozer and never once went in, for the purely aesthetic reason that it was on the ground floor of a council estate and from the outside it always looked a bit grim. Just shows you to never judge a book by its cover, because this is really a very decent pub serving standard lagers alongside a couple of ales (Sambrooks Wandle and one off). Its got a welcoming, convival atmosphere and an interesting, alternative interior of bare-boarded wood and assorted nik-naks. I didn't mind it at all and would return.
