It was good to visit this pub when it was quiet, so a good look around the upstairs rooms and all around the downstairs was interesting. Six pumps, all in action on our visit, We went for the Trumans Zephyr and Blindside, which were both a good choice. Lots of interesting features in this pub, so well worth a visit.

Perfectly described below, but the cynic in me says that perhaps some of the interior décor isn't as old as the pub would have us believe, but certainly some old British riverside pubs were made from recycled ships' timbers. Certainly the ugly sauce bottles that adorn each table don't date back the early 16th century.
Ales, six in total but four were resting: Purity's Mad Goose, Greene King IPA, (GK?) Prospect of Whitby Best, Hopstuff's Fusilier and Sambrook's Pump House at £4.00 a pint (cheap considering) and fine.
This is a fine end to a tour of Wapping and should, for whatever reason, be on anyone's list of London pubs to visit at some time.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Prospect of Whitby

Historic riverside pub, with fine views of the Thames if you manage to get a decent seat. 'L'-shaped bar with various seating areas and an open 'courtyard' to one side. Function rooms and terrace upstairs. Very traditional furniture and decor. Five of the eight handpumps were operational on this visit, with Truman's Rio Gold being the pick of the bunch.
