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

Not been in for over seven years, but having just missed a train and expecting all the many other pubs and bars looking very full, I thought I would re-visit to see whether things had changed. However, the over-bright lighting and surfaces remain, and thus it is rather different to most Davy's outlets, which tend to be dingy basement premises. The layout features an 'U'-shaped bar with a side room (not always in use), and is set down a bit at both front and back (meaning that the popular yard shared with the George is located up a few steps). As expected, just Spitfire (£4.25) available from the two handpumps on the sides of the counter, but at least they don't serve beer in the disgusting metal tankards that most Davy's use. NB - Review dates from two days before the horrific events nearby on London Bridge and in Borough Market, which is a sobering thought...

hondo . left this review about The Heeltap

Across the courtyard from The George it's quite a soulless modern building. 2 real ale taps but covered in Halloween guff so don't know the beers and if they where on or off. Food served.

I L left this review about The Heeltap

A modern bar with two ales on but quite oftrn they are either stale or chilled to much but at least you can get real ale in what is basically a wine bar. often have staff standing around the outside seating stopping people bringing pints of much better ale from the George across the square!
