A natural starting point for a Regents Canal pub walk and still probably the best pub on the river in east London. The outside deck overlooking the Thames is an atmospheric spot and the dark brown interior is reminiscent of below quarters on a ship. Ales were decent enough if unexciting while roast lamb was accompanied by cut above the average vegetables. A little drafty and it does get busy.

Atmospheric, historic boozer with place to mellow and watch the Thames at the back - as long as you get there before the tourists and curious. Decent quality ale from a small brewery.

What an absolute cracker this historic pub overlooking the Thames is. There has been a pub here for over 500 years and in the 29 years I’ve been drinking I’ve never ever been here, what a travesty that is!

5 ales on the bar, I cannot remember what they all were but the couple of pints of Brentwood Breweries Golden Galaxy @ 4.0% I had were excellent. If I remember correctly it was £3.90 a pint, not bad for this area.

Extremely busy inside, the upstairs dining room was closed and food had stopped being served so it was drinks and board games all around inside. The clientele was 25 +, with a mix of groups and couples.

Lovely balcony area overlooking the Thames and the Anthony Gormley sculpture that is dedicated to a former neighbour of the pub (nice touch).

We had a couple of pints out on the balcony watching the traffic on the river go past. Cannot believe I have never been here before, it’s an excellent and warrants another visit and maybe food as menu seems pretty evenly priced for the standard of food on offer.

Great way to finish a Saturday off.

Visited on Sunday afternoon absolutely miserable barmaid. Only one cask ale available. Draft cider went off during visit. Nice looking pub but wouldn't be in a rush to go back unless they sort out their stock and educate their staff in warm welcome.

Just remembered I owe this place a slating. Organised a training day with my team so that I could drag them from Waterloo to this pub afterwards, citing it's ambience and proximity to the river. On arrival I looked at the selection of four real ales. I was disappointed that my preferred option was off so elected another. I was told that they had no real ales, but was offered a bottle of Black Sheep from the fridge. I apologised profusely to all. I still enjoy the small balcony out back, and it was a nice day, so no complaint there. One of our group was late so we felt obliged to have another. This time Miss Disinterested told me they had run out of all ales, even bottled! Had a Guinness and left. Ian McKellen; if this is your plaything, please do not ruin it for those who used to enjoy it or live nearby.
