    Beautiful traditional pub, could be in the middle of the countryside! Decking outside with a view of the river. They do cheese boards and traditional pub food! Lovely crowd a proper hidden gem.

    What small pubs SHOULD be like - cozy, vibrant and friendly. Great selection drinks, great food and all lots of books and crannies to sit in.

    Order a local beer and custom cheese plate to enjoy on the deck perched over the Thames. It's enough to make an American want to move to the Motherland. Read more

    Fantastic river side view, friendly staff, and good food! Although food quality varies by item: roasts, mussels, liver terrine great - burgers could be better.

    Charming old-fashion pub situated right on the banks of the River Thames at Rotherhithe, serving excellent food. Sit outside on the deck in summer, and watch the river right below your feet.

    A beautiful pub with a fireplace and lots of little antiques, nice place to have lunch and a pint. Looks like it's lost in time, which is good. Lovely staff.

    The burger and chips were good. Try and find a seat on the covered deck in the rear. Nice place to enjoy a few pints!

    Lovely, lovely old pub. Beautiful location and a nice selection of ales to choose from. They use candles to light up the place! Only gripe was the music. I'd prefer this pub with no music at all.

    Steeped in history. Nice terrace on the river but get there early if you want a table outside in summer. Good "craft" beer selection and the food is pretty decent too.

    Lovely atmosphere and Thames-side outdoor area in this old pub. Enjoyed it so much I completely ignored that some of the beer wasn't very well kept. Punk IPA was suitably tasty. Worth seeking out.

    The food is consistently good at this riverside pub. The 30 day aged beefburger is really good, fast efficient service. The Old Salt Quay nearby could learn a LOT from this place..

    My favourite pub south of the river. Fantastic pub grub (loved the pie) and decent selection of beers. The back puts you right above the thames. Great for a summers day

    One of the coolest pubs in London. Especially excellent when the back deck is open as it sits right over the Thames!! Great place for dinner. It's an intimate and very cool pub

    Lovely cosy old pub. Not a great beer selection but Punk IPA on keg is up to standard, and you can't argue with sitting out on the edge of the Thames when the weather is good.

    Great deck, good beer selection and pub meals, cosy winter interior. Good for cold winters or hot summer days. Proper old pub with a bit of American history.

    Best chicken & mushroom pie I've ever had! Crispy pastry sitting on mashed potato, carrots, lots of green veg & a rich beefy gravy.

    Lovely classic old English pub. Start the night with some cheese and ale. Steer clear of the main meals. Great band on a Friday night making it a fun atmosphere.

    Jump off the Overground line at Rotherhithe for a pint and some food at one of London’s best pubs. It takes its name from the ship that took the Pilgrim Fathers to New England in 1620. Read more

    Pies and views are great. Leave the risotto. It's £1 if you want more than 3 small pieces of bread with the Camembert, which you will.
