3 cask ales available, large outside concreted area overlooking the Thames. The upstairs area and verandas were closed for some unknown reason, even though one of the bar staff told me it was open! There are better pubs overlooking the river.

Beautiful location, however the staff are shockingly rubbish. Went in one Sunday for lunch and a drink, forget it,,,,,,, Half hour to get served a drink, as the staff hadn't a clue what they were doing, I only stayed as I was curious to see if we would get lunch. We were told 45 min wait, don't understand why? We decided against ordering for obvious reasons and the fact that lots of customers were leaving he food and leaving the premises. Unfortunately service has been rubbish any time I have been in, (4 times) will Not be going back. Advise u not to waste your time going in. Shame.

This pub is located on the south bank of the Thames and is popular with Londoners rather than tourists. Three real ales were available on the day I visited including a house ale which I found to be excellent. The food was well cooked and at reasonable prices in the downstairs bar. There is also an upstairs eating area (which was fully booked when we visited) where Sunday lunch is served which we had found to be good quality on a previous visit. This pub is well worth a visit if you happen to be in the Rotherhithe area.

A fine waterside pub for a hot sunny day; seasonal BBQ on the terrace wafts saliva-inducing meat smoke across the garden. Beer in good condition and the friendly barman even offered to top my pint up to the line without being asked. Down to earth clientele were friendly.

As others have said, this is a large pub and is therefore difficult to create much of a buzz, but it is at least tastefully decorated, clean, and they have reasonable ales (usually now something to go with the standard IPA and Abbott). As to service, it isn't great, and they can be somewhat swamped if it turns out to be a nice day, because the terrace overlooking the Thames is wonderful, and everyone flocks there on a sunny weekend afternoon. I have found the Sunday carvery very good; not the cheapest around but it's good quality, and food standards seem much higher than a major carvery chain I recently visited.
