A little out of the way to find Samuel Pepys is kinda pub / bar type place.

Not the place to go to if you want to talk at any decent level and that is just because of the music not because of the volume of loud talking. It was not busy when we came so can only imagine the din once there are lots of customers in there.

Ordered the bruschetta which was very tasteless and non-descript. Next i...more

Even if your inside, there are...more

Overlooking the Thames, you can see The Shard, The Tate Modern, Millenium Bridge and the Globe Theatre.

They have a happy hour...more

Excellent location, excellent view, mediocre service, and high prices. Thus, not a place I'd go regularly but definitely one I'd go to. I went here twice in my four months in London and I plan on stopping here again. Probably not for a full meal but def for drinks and chips, just to sit on the lovely couch near the window, to enjoy the view, and, if I remember correctly, some killer tunes...more
