Atmospheric and historic interior, but a must-visit for its sensational view over the Thames. Good service when I visited.

Another one of those must visit London Pubs - if you are in the area.

A board traces its history through the monarch's since Henry VIII. Frequented by Captain Kidd. Many stories to tell.

On this visit, it was a relatively quiet Saturday lunch which meant I could have a proper mooch - head to the back for the Thames Terrace or upstairs for the Smugglers Bar.

Seems churlish to talk about the beer in a living museum but my Isle of Rye from the New River brewery was in perfect condition.

Not bad for a Greene King.

Visited early lunchtime, pub almost totally empty. Interesting range of beers, had the ELB Nightwatchman which was in good condition. I imagine this place would get totally rammed on a sunny afternoon. Worth visiting.

Tuesday night pub crawl in Wapping and the first port of call @ 6.30pm is the Prospect and it’s already busy in the garden overlooking the Thames.

Modern interior with lots of wood and low lighting.

Five Points Brewing Co Five Points Pale @ 4.4% is my a choice from the 5 hand pumps, there’s also 2 more on keg. A thoroughly decent pint but with change of just 20p from a tenner for 2 pints it’s not overly cheap!

Great water frontage and also food available which looked pretty good, I can understand why it’s so pricey but it’s not the best pub in the area.

The service in here goes from bad to worse. It doesn't matter whether it's packed or there's only three men and a dog in there, somehow they'll always find a way to make you wait.
