As the Rose & Crown, this pub dates from at least the early 19th century and was in situ by 1936. It was rebuilt I don’t know when in the current form and I don’t know if indeed it was rebuilt as the Mulberry Bush or not, but it was in the GBG 2017.
It’s obviously a modern place – hardly traditional – with a featureless interior, bar to the left with just London Original and Special; it was hardly a hive of activity and certainly no sign of any bees.
However, my visit last night was marred by the barman telling me that: ‘Sorry. We close at nine. Bank Holiday’. It wasn’t actually 9.00, but as the place is a featureless waste of space in a postcode featuring some very fine hostelries, I didn’t miss much.

Still a Young's pub as described below, although the bee range hides that well. There was a young local crowd in, noisy but harmless apart from the obstructive smokers blocking the front door and tutting as we asked to come in. Most of the tables were reserved, though no-one appeared at them during our visit. The bearded barman was churlish and unhelpful, certainly not professional, and reluctant to serve. The best beer option was Bermondsey Best Bitter, which was in excellent condition, and there ere two dry pumps on the bar. Keg choices were Peroni, Prahva, Neck Oil, Asahi, Lunar Haze and Camden Hells, while there was also a rack of pre-mixed cocktails and designer gins behind the bar. Nice beer, shame about the pub.

Located a short stroll away from the Thames Path behind Gabriel’s Wharf, this is a traditional looking pub from the outside but has clearly been “renovated” at some point and now seems to cater to a primarily younger clientele. Our Friday evening visit found it very busy, with the music somewhat too loud for easy conversation.

Décor wise it’s a mixture of traditional and modern with grey slate style tiling on much of the floor with large areas of inlaid wood strip elsewhere. Paintwork was mostly a dark green with further areas of dark green wood panelling as well as green iron supporting pillars, whilst a freshly plastered ceiling had been painted white. Large bi-folding doors all along the front of the pub no doubt make it light and airy in the warmer weather, and there looked to be some sort of more contemporary extension at the rear with light oak panelling, although we did not investigate this. Lighting was predominantly exposed filament light bulbs, which are of course de rigour in any pub renovation these days.

Despite five hand pumps on the bar, only two were in use dispensing Young’s London Gold and Proper Job, with two appearing to have run out and one seemingly unused. Not a great start to the weekend. To make matters worse, the solitary cider was Aspall’s Suffolk. Had I caught this at a quieter time and with a better drinks selection available I might have warmed to it a bit more, but as it was I don’t feel any particular urge to rush back.
