This is a pub that I've walked past many times, and at last summoned up the enthusiasm to go in. I haven't been missing much. It was pretty gloomy in there, but that's not their fault as it's got a pretty dire location right under the railway bridge. It's a circular pub at one end of Borough Market. Bare-boarded inside with tall stools at ledges by the winsows, and a handful of normal tables/benches/small round stools in an area to the left separated from the main bar area by a large case containing bottles.

The pair of real ales on were Truman's Swift and Sharp's Atlantic - both £4 a pint, which to be fair isn't bad for the area. Plastic "glasses" are available if you want to take your drink outside into the market. The only food I saw was bar snacks such as nuts, etc. This is a fairly unremarkable pub, but my Swift was in good shape. Certainly not worth going out of your way to visit, but it's a useful watering hole for anyone visiting Borough Market.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Globe

Interesting building on the edge of Borough Market, with traditional furniture and a number of decorative features of interest within its unusual curved frontage. The interior has been given a major refurbishment since I last called in a couple of years ago, and is now much more appealing. The place is better staffed too, and the number of handpumps has increased to five. On this visit, I found Truman's Swift, Southwark Top Drop Pale Ale (£4.60), Big Smoke Electric Eye Pale Ale and two from Portobello - Home Turf Pale and Stiff Lip. Rating increased.

Now a lot smarter than before as mentioned below, a brightly lit L shaped bar that seemed almost more wine-bar than pub to me, echoed by an extensive wine list starting at £19.60 a bottle. The lone barman didn't seem to be overly rushing himself to serve waiting customers, indeed one group of four gave up and left, when he got to me I had a choice of four from five handpumps, Pride, ELB Foundation Bitter, One Mile End Hospital Porter and Moncada Notting Hill Pale which I had a half of and was privileged to pay £2.20, for a 3.2% beer,added to that it was quite hazy though tasted ok. Although I cant knock the beer selection here I didn't really take to the place and will likely bypass it next time I'm around Borough Market.
