The reason I tried again is that the...more

I've always loved this pub, which is a standard English pub -- don't expect to order too many exotic drinks here -- with a beautiful traditional interior, and a great patio outside with a view of the Thames and flower boxes. Has a solid selection of beer, whiskey, spirits, etc. Usually staffed by a crowd of friendly Australians.

Next door/upstairs is a posh restaurant that has really...more
