Draft House Tower Bridge

Draft House Tower Bridge

Part of the growing chain of Draft House pubs (the next closest is across the water in Seething Lane), this corner pub occupies a prominent position in the run-up to Tower Bridge.

Half given over to diner-style eating, it looks all geared up to attract a tourist crowd. Like all Draft Houses, though, the emphasis is on quality booze and American-style pub grub (burgers, hot dogs and their ilk, but very well done).

The beer selection is superb, with the fruits of obscure microbreweries very much the thing. Five Points Railway Porter — one of our all-time faves — is on permanent tap. Unlike most craft ale places, there's plenty of room to stretch your legs — so this is a good bet if you want to try a niche beer, but also want to get a table. That said, it can get very busy on Fridays.

There's also a large (100 people) room for hire, and under-road vaults.

One word of caution if you're going to start a tab. We were recently charged a £45 service charge, even though we didn't get any table service.
