Yet another decent pub near London Bridge station. 6 beers on when I called. Service was good even though the place was rammed.

A classic London pub building occupying the site of a former prison, the cells of which can still be seen in the basement bar. The ground floor bar is well described below. It was previously a Friary Meux pub and is now run by M&B. Aside from the architectural and historical interest, this visit disappointed. The staff were difficult and indolent, while the majority of the customers, many in family groups, were stroppy non-locals who thought they were in some sort of theme park where they could insult everyone with impunity. The beer was OK, once we'd been around the buoy of what constitutes a full pint a few times: Reunion's Opening Gambit, Alexander's Fine and Dandy and Firebird's Parody sat next to Doombar and Proper Job to provide a promising line-up. I'm not sure it would be my first choice if I'm in this area in future despite the good beer.

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

This unbranded M&B (Castle) pub has an interesting curved tiled façade, although the mustard-brown colour is not exactly inviting. Fairly standard 'olde London pub' interior, although circulation is somewhat hindered by the irregular layout. Further seating downstairs in the Debtor's Bar and in a series of cell-like brick snugs located down a few more steps. As busy as any other pub in the popular Borough Market area, but it usually has a decent selection of real ales from the six handpumps (including Black Isle Ursa Major and Blackout porter from the Great Yorkshire Brewery on this visit). NB - It is worth noting that it is one of the nearer places to London Bridge station open after 11 pm if waiting for a late train.
