Tris C left this review about The Rose

Dating from the late 18th century, this was rebuilt, probably in the 19th, formerly a Hoare’s house.
The windows are modern leaded with stained glass, but otherwise it would seem that the addiction to the copper theme mentioned in several earlier reviews no longer applies; it also boasts that it’s home to the Bermondsey Parmo, despite the pub not actually being in Bermondsey. There’s still the wood panelling, with studded banquette booths to the rear, beyond which is an ugly games machine, then tall conventional furniture to the front, but then again, the dim lighting (fake Victorian chandeliers and sconces) may have impeded my vision somewhat, but otherwise it’s as described, with trendy framed artistic prints, mocking senior members of the royal family. Customers were youngish with a fairly good buzz for a Tuesday evening, possibly buoyed up by the loud Stevie Wonder playing over the gramophone, so I doubt I’d find it any less busy on a Friday.
Amazingly there was just the one ale, something called Rose – Amber House Ale? at an insulting £2.85 a half and decent, though 10p cheaper than my half at the Horseshoe Inn across the way.
This place isn’t a disaster, but there are plenty of better pubs in the area.

Typical corner pub. Bar to the left. One hand pump which I didn't take note of. Rest keg. Room off to the right.

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

This pub at the back of Guy's Hospital was still an old fashioned corner local on my previous visit some six years ago, but it has since been partly refurbished to mix the traditional wood panelling and dark wood furniture with shiny hooped craft keg founts and gastro-pub food. Annoyingly, almost all the tables were laid up for non-existent diners, meaning that the compact bar counter area was unnecessarily crowded. Several (rebadged?) Snowsfield-branded keg beers on tap, with a solitary handpump dispensing Banks's Sunbeam (ridiculously expensive at £4.90).
