With spectacular views across the Thames that take in a range of iconic London buildings – including Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, The Shard and the Tate Modern – The Samuel Pepys is a hidden gem in the heart of the City.

The location is awkward, but it has a nice view. Modern interior with far too many stairs. A little bit of an identity crisis here; doesn't know whether it wants to be a cocktail bar or a pub, two bitters, only one on. I would go here again, but only if I was paid.more
I have been a few times already as this is next to my job and this is the typical place you won't see unless someone takes you there or you are walking by. The street could look quite scary on a rainy grey day and even in a sunny one, but the views worth the visit. Overlooking the Thames, you can see The Shard, The Tate Modern, Millenium Bridge and the Globe Theatre.

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
New home ... new neighbourhood pub ... and what a nice one it is !! :)
Samuel Pepys is located in a tiny, shabby alley right next to the building where i stay ... and the signboard looks like one of the many pubs you see all around London. But when i went inside a couple of days ago for the first time, i realized it was totally different from what i had imagined.
