We defy you to enter this pub without emitting a pirate's "Yeeaarrgggh!!". The Captain Kidd is named after one of history's most notorious plunderers, William Kidd, who was eventually hanged hereabouts at a notorious gallows known as Execution Dock.
The old warehouse location adds to the briny charm of the place, and the large windows overlooking the Thames are a joy. There's plenty of space in the large ground-floor bar, with further room and a restaurant upstairs. The adjacent yard gives an outdoor riverside option in the summer.
The usual range of Sam Smith's beer and wine can be yours for a few pieces of eight.
