Went in there on a Saturday afternoon. The place wasn't busy so you would expect efficient service but this wasn't the case. After ordering our drinks you could see them waiting on the bar for an age. Food wasn't too bad and the Doombar was fine (unusually so for this type of place). Bit anoyed that when paying the waiter he was shoulder to shoulder with me expecting a big tip. Not likely!

Won't go back.

I did like this bar, mainly for the location ! But the Gents toilets are an absolute disgrace, and have been since the bar first opened.

I have conplained many times, to no avail. I now drink elsewhere. It's such a shame !

I was a little sceptical with the previous reviews as I think that an ABO is an ABO, but this place is certainly the best one I have been in. The view of Tower Bridge and the financial district from the decking that stretches the length of this long bar are very impressive.

One of my major gripes with ABOís is the incompetence of the staff, but fortunately there was a large group of us when I visited so we got table service from a very nice chap who knew what he was doing. This avoided being given change on a silver tray and I donít mind giving a small tip when 15 pints are delivered to the table with no queuing. Another gripe is that these pubs are usually full of braying nobheads drinking pints of wine, but again fortunately I was sitting outside away from the bar and the general populace. Maybe my above average regard for this place is down to circumstance, but I will give credit where credit is due and say that I had a very good evening in this bar.

The only ale offering of Pride had run out before I arrived, but the Guinness was good and standard lagers were also available alongside Carlsberg.

The toilets need sorting out as one cubicle was locked and the other had a broken door. I ended up having to ask for the key to the disabled toilet, which was given with no hassle. I then had to go back into the gentís toilet as the disabled one had no hand drying facility.

Even though this place is a soulless chain bar and the lack of attention to detail is criminal I still liked it for the location and I would go back again if in the area.

I usually don't do 'chain bars', bust this ABO is really nice. Great view over the river, spacious outside seating, the staff here is always nice and helpful and the goats cheese topped burger is heaven! Never disappoints.

I'm not a huge ABO fan either; but as stated it gains for the location, and in terms of service/type of punter attracted etc. it's pretty good for an ABO.
