Bucking Fastard left this review about Captain Kidd

A warehouse that has been converted into a pub by Sam Smiths,but like so much of their estate in London it has been furnished in a rather dull traditional style with little of interest.There is a large bar to the right,some tables by windows with views over the Thames and then a courtyard running up to the riverside.However the view is limited by a trip boat mooring wharf and the River Police HQ.
The more attractive area is the first floor restaurant,which also has a serving bar,and pub grub style food menu but not overly expensive.
Only one handpump offering Old Brewery Bitter (in better condition than many of their tied estate) and the usual SS keg options.Compared with the Prospect of Whitby ,this pub pales into insignificance and I can see no good reason to return.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Captain Kidd

Not quite the traditional riverside pub that it first appears since it was converted from a warehouse a few decades ago. The interior features what looks like a rather unsympathetic rustic refurbishment, but this was presumably the original fit-out. Split-level bar, with some seats offering a river view. Dining rooms upstairs (not visited). Terrace overlooking the Thames to one side. As a Sam Smith's house, it is just OBB of course from the two handpumps.

Dating from 1989, this is a modern Sam Smith's conversion that attracts a mixed crowd. Ably described below, with all the fake beams, bare brick and flagstone floor.

Old Brewery on cask for once and better than my pint of Fuller's London Pride at The Town of Ramsgate up the road.

A bit fake Olde Worlde for me and the dog roaming around didn't appeal. I can't see myself returning given The Town of Ramsgate up the road.
