Mulberry Bush

430 user reviews 4

Sure, this trusty gastropub is as centrally located as they come - but that doesn't stop it from offering an affectionate, neighbourhood vibe. Located within a few seconds of the waterfront, the Mulberry Bush is a cracking option whether you're coming for the seasonal foods and daily changing specials or just a couple of pints from their excellent range of beer and ale. Looking for a private hire space? The Green Room is well equipped at hosting all manner of special occasions.

The Thirsty Bear

228 user reviews 4

A revolutionary venue, The Thirsty Bar is completely normal aside from the fact that it boasts its own self-service bar, no big deal. This is achieved with Ipads  on each table that allows you to place orders for food and drinks; to surf the internet; to select tracks on the Jukebox and to do buy beer that you can then instantly dispense from the tap on your table.

Jack's Bar

138 user reviews 5

Jack's is a cosy, Southwark based bar, run by two brothers and offering a range of ice-cold beer, tasty comfort food and delicately balanced cocktails. Keeping their decor purposely simple with exposed brick walls and wooden floors, the venue offers a selection of craft beers and delicious cocktails, served alongside a menu of hearty pizzas, hotdogs and wings.

Need a break from the bustle of central London? Seek refuge in the Duke of Sussex, a homely and familiar boozer serving the best in seasonal British produce washed down with a carefully curated menu of beer, wine and refreshing cocktails. There's a spacious beer garden for the summer, a large function room for private hire groups and always lots going on, whether that be weekly quiz nights or live music events.
