Apparently Shakespeare and Charles Dickens has had a drink here so I had to try it. Excellent location overlooking river Thames. Classic pub with a very classy interior. Big selection of beers.

Dark, cozy with lots of happy laughter and drink clinking. We were just stopping by after a visit to the Globe, so we only had beers. Would like to come back next time for the full meal.
