I think this pub deserves better than a 4-star rating. The location is superb with a large bay and tables outside from where you get great views across the dock. The beer was perfectly acceptable - Fuller's Summer Ale is not the most flavoursome but right for a warm summer evening. And good value food - not something that's always easy to find so close to central London.

We used to be regulars at a certain pub with a big beer garden just around the corner before we discovered that the Moby is much better value , the food is just good home cooking with decent size portions and at half the price they are charging around the corner the drinks are alot cheaper too and the service here is very good the staff are always happy to help you and the view across the dock is a great place to sit outside or inside

I am a regular visitor to the Moby Dick. As well as having a lovely location with views over Greenland Dock, the bar staff are friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is always good. I always get a great welcome and take friends there. The inside seating is comfortable and there is a lot of outside seating which gets the sun all day in the summer.

A lot of locals drink there but it also attracts people from a wider area who come particularly for the busy quiz night and the vast Sunday roasts.

There is a good mixture of Fullers beers, ciders and bottled drinks and a really impressive wine list. It has everything from low cost house wines to celebration wines and Champagnes. For those of you who, like me, have an affection for Hoegaarden on tap look no further!

The food is good quality standard pub food with a range of sandwiches, panninis, burgers and baked potatoes and a good menu of larger meals like scampi, lasagne, all day breakfast, tuna steak, battered cod, all available with chips, croquette potatoes or jacket potatoes and salad. Starters, bar meals and desserts also available and there is always a Specials board. Portions are huge and the chips are particularly irresistible.

I also feel some previous reviews were unkind. The beer (Fullers London Pride, ESB and visiting ones) plus usual lagers/Hoegarden etc are generally kept well. If your pint is cloudy or 'wrong', take it back before you drink half of it and I'm sure they'll change it! Food: Ok, this isn't a gastro-pub and doesn't pretend to be, and the prices relect that. But the food is usually fine, and the all-day breakfast (at greasy-spoon prices) should only be attempted if you are ravenous. I would however think twice about the chilli because as a confirmed carnivor I was struggling not to ask them to add "vegetarian" in front of the description. Nothing wrong with it - just not for me.

The views down Greenland Dock make this place special, and Summer afternoons/evenings were made for lazing at the tables, having a pint, nattering to friends and laughing at joggers doing their laps of the dock. In Winter, watching the rain lash against the floor-to-ceiling windows can be equally rewarding. You just get less lycra to admire.

I think some of the previous reviews are somewhat unkind. The view over Greenland Dock is great and the beer is good. I've always had good experiences there, especially on warm summers days sitting out front.
