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

Traditional pub dating from 1897, hidden away in a side street at the back of Guys Hospital, with some fine decorative features on the exterior. Sparsely and plainly furnished bar area, with a dartboard at one end. Also has more seating in a side room, out the back in a smallish patio area and on the front and side pavements. Just far enough away from London Bridge station to retain a proper community feel. The bar staff generally seem efficient here, also actively clearing tables, etc. As a Brakspear pub, I found Bitter and Hobgoblin (£4.70) available from two of the three handpumps on this visit, with a reversed clip for Honey Bee also noted.

Malden man left this review about The Horseshoe Inn

An attractive looking pub with good floral displays situated in a bit of a hidden away location. The main room is staple shaped with the bar along part of the back wall, a return one side has a dartboard with a shelf of trophies nearby, the other side leads to a separate side room which then leads on to a pleasant sunny garden. There are two full sized carved wooden brown bears out here standing guard.
Mixed seating, boarded flooring, a fireplace down one end, all sorts on the walls including boxing prints, cases of bits and bobs. A sign above the bar helpfully declares that the pub is in the GBG 2010! The wall mounted TV was off on Sunday so unsure if sport friendly, music played but not too loud.
Three pulls, Brakspear Bitter and Hobgoblin, the other unclipped. Food served.
I liked it in here, why I can't exactly put my finger on but it just felt the part really. Perhaps because I visited after the fairly disappointing Rose up the road.

I was led to the Horseshoe Inn by a friend who knew its location, which was handy as I would never have found it. The bar stretches along the rear wall of this narrow pub and to the right of the bar is a dartboard. Standard draught was available alongside Ringwood Best, Hobgoblin and Marstons. Standard pub fare was available from around £10 for a main and a member of my group stumped up for a more expensive meat platter that went down quite well, although I ended up with a little more garlic bread than I would have liked. To the left of the pub is a separate seating area with another dartboard and a piano. Access from here can be gained to a beer garden full of picnic tables that stretches around to the rear of the pub. There was some background music emanating from the jukebox and the barmaid was cold and distant, even though we spent over £100 between us.

I enjoyed the darts and the company, but not the hospitality… This pub is not on my list of revisits.
