Southwark Tavern is an unusual pub in that it opens for a few hours in the mornings as there is a vegetable market next door. Other than that (when is is open for regular pub hours) it is a traditional pub with a fire place and fruit machines. They only serve food in the afternoon and offer a selection of beers, ales and spirits. Catering for private parties of up to 50 people is available upon request.

You'd have to stay for hours to make your way through all the local beer/ale options.
My only complaint is the same complaint that most would have with the majority of London...more
The basement cells here are very cool, although actually being trapped next to a cell with a loud, drunk and obnoxious occupant was a little taste of real prison! That didn't spoil my enjoyment of this pub though, which I generally really liked.

It's also at the beginning of Borough Market so if you have a few, there are places to grab chips...more
