|5th and final pub of my short crawl of Wapping and we decided to finish it here in this quality Samuel Smiths pub|
Around 9pm when we arrive and it’s busy inside and out.
A full compliment of Sam Smiths ales and lagers on tap and in the fridges. I had several pints of Best and treated myself to a £12.00 bottle of Yorkshire Stingo. A beer that is limited edition and in my eyes was worth the money…it was handsome.
Only one barmaid one at the time of my visit but she was very competent and speedy.
Drinks purchased we took a seat in the nice outside area and soaked up the atmosphere.
Historic pub with plenty of history and in a great location.
My review this time is much better than from my last visit when it was winter and the pub felt incredibly dark inside…in the summer it’s a cracker and a must visit along with the Town of Ramsgate.

|Situated in former warehouses this riverside pub is roughly 2-3 minute from Wapping station. The pub itself is on 3 floors - the top floor being a function room. The interior is very traditional which you'd expect from Sam Smith's boozers with great views of London and the Thames from the beer garden and other parts of the pub. |
The 1st floor is the restaurant area with typical S Smiths fayre being served. The food was good and fairly priced, nothing out of the ordinary it has to be said. Again, the beer is OBB, Alpine Lager etc, exactly the same as you get from other Sam Smith's outlets. The atmosphere in the pub was relaxed and suitable for families if visiting in the daytime.
This was an enjoyable visit, the staff were friendly with the pub having a welcoming feel to it. It's worth a visit to The Captain Kidd if you're in the vicinity.

|Second time I've had a bad experience here in the last 3 months. The staff clearly don't know what they're doing and a couple had a seriously bad attitude. A pleasant pub but has a desperate air of misery once you walk in. The terrace is pleasant but I wouldn't return until the shambles behind the bar get their act together. |

|After seeing that they have just one (of their own) ale(s) on pump, I went to the Rochester down the road where their was a fine choice. There is no excuse for this when all other pubs and bars are waking up to the renaissance in ale driven by youthful micro breweries. Avoid.|

|With reference to the previous review by "Uncle Dunkle", he states that hand pulled real ale is not available in The Captain Kidd - strange because Sam Smiths Old Brewery Bitter certainly was on sale in there (on two hand-pumps) when I was in there two days ago. As a fairly regular visitor to the pub, it's been many years since keg beer was all that was available in there. As to the price of the Sam Smiths bottled beers - yes, some are expensive though I don't remember seeing one for than £12. Regarding price lists - last time I looked there was one on almost every table inside the pub. I fear - as we say in the East End - "Uncle Dunkle" is talking "bollocks". Yes, The Captain Kidd is a bit of a tourist trap - it would be because it's slap bang on Thames with stunning views. But the one thing it's not is expensive (just over £3 per pint) unless you want you sample some of their more "exotic" bottled beers - check first!|
