A Central London pub commanding amazing views of the river; on days where the sun shines, their beer garden is perfect for a tranquil after work drink, and the bar inside and the balcony area also overlook the river. These fantastic views, central location and traditional pub-feel make this a popular choice for those wanting more than just a quiet drink; inside the beautiful bar you can also amuse yourself at their pool table, or sit back and enjoy watching the varied Central London crowd that pass by.
