The Southampton Arms, Gospel Oak

An excellent, well-maintained pub of the bare floorboards and a log fire variety, although the room was a bit cool for me. Warm welcome from the barmaid and a great pint of Gun Brewery pale ale. You get your beer or cider in a pint or half-pint handled mugs here. They play vinyl LPs for the background music. Clean toilets, the gentlemen's outside via the garden. Quite busy on this Saturday lunch-time with a mostly younger aged clientele. We wish to return.

Pommelers Rest, Tower Bridge

I liked this pub. It offered many real ales including: Ruddles Best Bitter, Fullers London Pride and By the Horns Brewery’s Diamond Geezer. They all were enjoyable and at a reasonable price, especially important for this high-priced area called Horselydown. (By the bye, pop down the road to see the statue of Jacob the dray horse.) At the time we visited, service was pleasant enough but a bit slow: they could probably do with another servant better to meet demand from drinkers and eaters. The interior layout has some six or eight person tables partially screened away from the mêlée of other customers, which slight separation assists a good natter. Do allow sufficient time to reach the (well-kept) loos as it is quite a trek downstairs (if you are not disabled). I should complain about a rather unpleasant klaxon that sounds from time to time – a win on the fruit machines or a fire alarm? All in all, well worth a visit.

The Rising Sun, Smithfield

We found this a very quiet pub on a second visit. A friendly member of staff served an enjoyable Extra Stout. Interesting pictures on the walls if you have the time.
