Dating from 1851 and originally the Bricklayer’s Arms, I suspect that this has been rebuilt at some point. It has been hipsterfied as a ‘craft ale’ outlet, situated in an obscure back street, but all streets in SE1 seem to be obscure.
The interior is rather predictable, with smoky blue walls, tall furniture, tea lights on tables, fluted glass shades with Victorian-style sconces and a modern herringbone floor. Décor comes in the form of framed former brewery adverts, folk music played on the stereo and tea lights flickered on the tables.
There’s a rear beer wall with board above, advertising just three cask options, one off, one I couldn’t read, plumping for the Moor Resonance at a very good £2.25 a half; it was ok, but cool and refreshing would have worked better on a hot summer’s day.
This place is ok, though a little soulless so I doubt I’ll return.

Quite a small bare boarded interior. A good selection of keg and 4 real ales

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Dean Swift

Corner pub located in the side streets just downstream of Tower Bridge. Given something of a gastro-pub makeover at some stage, but full of those just having a drink when I visited early on a weekday evening. Not a lot of space, either for seating of behind the corner bar, with London Lush and What Mama Don't Know from Franklin's (£4.30) being dispensed from two of four handpumps, with a fair range of craft beers also available from the ten keg taps.
