Great beer, good food, friendly and attentive staff, what's not to like. We stopped in here after wandering across the Tower Bridge and it was just what we needed. Everyone enjoyed tier food and their selection of Samuel Smiths beers was on-point.

Came in for a pint. No one in here. No music. No atmosphere. It's 1pm on a Saturday. Wouldn't recommend.

We stopped here by chance walking around London. Waitress was really friendly polite and attentive. I had nice fish n chips (£12) and peas. The Mac and cheese was a hit too. And the beef burger.

A rarity to find a pub that hasn't been ripped apart and up dated. This Sam Smiths pub is not far from Tower Bridge on a corner. Its not a busy pub but has a steady flow of customers throughout the day. The dining room...More

I would be surprised if not. I don't recall a children's menu as they will probably do scaled down versions of adult meals.
