The Southwark Tavern, London Bridge

They say the Wheatsheaf is going to repoen soon in its original and historic location in Borough Market round the corner, but I might stick with the Southwark Tavern. Had a few leisurely drinks with Mrs Wilko on Sunday evening; not too busy, knowledgeable and friendy barman, nice range of beers including some I hadn't heard of - a Berry's winter brew was excellent. This pub also has a distinctive basement bar that is a real treat - I like to take visitors there.

Founders Arms, Bankside

Sorry to see so many negative reviews here; I think it is still a great option for whiling away a sunny afternoon with one of the best views of the City across the river. I was pleased to see they had Kosel on draught, having recently enjoyed it in Prague- but had to wince a bit at paying 4.60 for the privilege.

I have usually found the barstaff to be friendly and efficient. But maybe it is because I tend to go at less busy times.

Whatever you say about the Founders, it is still a lot better than the once great but now ruined Anchor Bankside and the so called "Old" Thameside downriver - what a sad waste of great riverside drinking space those two are!
