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.

It’s taken a while to get round to visit this one but finally made it this week when doing a small crawl south of Tower Bridge and finished up spending most of the evening in here.
This reinvented upmarket craft and cask ale house has been well described by previous reviewers but it is quite impressive how many good beers they manage to cram into the small corner bar area. The four ale pumps had Roosters Weakender, Bedlam Brewery Benchmark,Five Points Brewing Railway Porter and Belleville Valley Blanche for our visit and although we didn’t try any the 10 keg pumps, these had a varied selection of decent craft offerings from the likes of Cronx, ELB, Five Points and Belleville. And then there were a lot more choice contained in cans and bottles in the fridges behind the bar.
A real Brucey bonus for our visit was that Belleville are the brewer of the month for the pub and they were in on our evening going around offering free tasters of their core beers. So we got free tasters of their Blonde and Pale Ales on top of decent pints from Bedlam and Five points..
I certainly won’t leave it so long to pay a return visit to here.
