A self-proclaimed Gastro pub that goes for the shabby chic look internally. That may work for the lunchtime work crowd in this part of town, but if I was paying £18 for a rack of ribs I think I might prefer to go for some decent tables and chairs instead of the eclectic assortment of tables and chairs to be found in the Kings Arms. They were all right to sit in for a beer though, especially as its location slightly away from the tourist area did mean that it was less crowded than the establishments on Tower Bridge Road. But unfortunately being a Green King House the available beer choice didn’t inspire either. Three beers were available from the GK stable in the shape of GK IPA, Patron Saint Ale and Old Hoppy Hen, then Belhaven Best as the fourth on. As others have said, there’s nothing greatly wrong with this place, it’s just nothing great.

Situated on the fringe of the now trendy and restaurant laden Butlers Wharf, this Greene King pub fits the character of the area conveying a slightly more upmarket feel than the traditional old workers boozer than it would certainly have been in the past.

The bare floored interior has a central open bar with slightly deeper sections either side. Lampshades dangle from the ceiling and the lighting is quite subdued with candlelit tables to the fore.

The 3 ales consisted of IPA, the seasonal Gangly Ghoul and a guest beer, Rudgate Jorvik Blond which was sadly not available. There were also some interesting lagers and craft beers on offer that I don't normally associate with Greene King pubs. The food is the top end of pub grub with main courses around £11-£16 and a lunchtime menu around £5-£9.

The pub is a generally safe option but the ales are a bit limiting (especially when the guest beer is off) and it was reasonably busy for the anonymous Sunday evening of our visit. Probably best avoided on London Marathon day as the pub is en route and the runners pass by before heading to neaby Tower Bridge.
