A member of the iconic fleet dating back to 1873, Nicholson's offers timeless British pub hospitality. A fine stock of smooth and silky cask ales are pulled at the bar, while homely British classics are served in the dining room. The carefully chosen wine list brings together some great international bottles, while a Cask Ale Club is offered for any true beer aficionados.
The hubster and I originally wanted to eat lunch at Borough Market, but because we were cold and wet after riding around in the rain for 2 hours on a bike tour and knew we would have 2 more hours to go afterwards, we took the recommendation of our trusty bike tour guide.

#2 on the London Bridge to Tower Bridge DW ale trail is The Mudlark.
What is a Mudlark? I still don't really know. (I's pretty sure it's a bird though)
