Captain Kidd is a converted warehouse pub, situated very close to the site of the Execution Dock where Kidd was hung for piracy and murder.

Además te atienden estupendamente, y como el local (tanto por dentro como por fuera) es amplio no tendrás problema en...more
From the Wapping High Street this pub looks like nothing special, with an old warehouse front and not much to hint at what you'll find inside. However this is simply the façade and as you walk through into the courtyard to the tavern, it appears Captain Kidd has a lot to offer.
