Great spot by the Borough Market. Can get extremely busy after 1630. Seemed like a place locals go after work. Lots of great beer choices.

It's a bit of a rough old spot really, and it smells bad enough that I wouldn't come in earlier in the day, but it's a handy spot for late night drinks.

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
