If you thought that the biggest shock in the London Bridge area was finding out how much it costs to visit the View From the Shard, then here's a bigger one. The Miller looks utterly average, sub-average even, from the outside (although the head-scratching addition of the word 'HOOPLA!' gives some indication that all is not what it seems) — like an estate pub aimed at locals only. Nothing could be further from the truth.
This place has many attractions, be it the excellent range of unusual ales, a superb range of ciders and perry, the prominent pool table, the upstairs music and comedy venue, the terrace ping-pong, the excellent pizzas, the boozy slush puppies, the DJ nights or the compact beer garden. Any one of these would be sufficient to imbue the adjective 'decent', but all together they add up to a thoroughly excellent pub. The food offering from burger kings Bunsmiths adds yet more tastiness.
It can get quite rowdy of an evening, especially when the students at nearby Guy's decide to let their hair down, but that can be attractive too. It's Miller time!
