Looks an interesting area. I like the architecture. My daughter is supposed to be showing me around London soon. I had better put it on my list! Like.

Steeped in Naval history, astrology and geography, with a bit of Christopher Wren thrown in for good measure. You never know, the Cutty Sark might be open to visitors again by the time you get there. The pub offers good fayre and a nice river side view but gets packed.

I Don't know about astrology Keepclicking but definitely astronomy, I think, with the Royal Observatory up on the hill! :)) On Summer days but sometimes in the Winter too I walk from Vauxhall Bridge to Greenwich, of course this pub is on the way there but I never drink there as it would be harder walking back!

I oft get my ologies mixed up Nick. Thats quite a walk. How do you manage Bermondsey/Rotherhythe where the path detaches itself from the river? I get knackered walking from the car door to the boot, and I've only got a smart car.

Nick Todaro on April 6, 2012

Keepclicking, :) The walk is not too bad it is just over six and half miles but sometimes we get the boat back especially when the weather turns for the worse!... Yes you do have to walk in and out including some short diversions where new building are taking the path away... Also several times you have to go way out joining then at the spice Island with few more obstacles after that you eventually get there...By the way once we walked from Westminster Bridge to the Thames Barrier then got the bus back Westminster Bridge both used our bus pass of course! :))

From what you say in your second exchange the pub 'gets packed' this pub is not likely to become a 'pub with no beer' of go quiet in a hurry. Unlike what is happening in the east end, The Greengate and the Castle PH's have both sadly gone recently. Lovely pic KC.

I know what you men Peter, we have lost about one a year for the last ten years locally.

Looks like a great pub for a weekday drop in for lunch and a beer. As for Nick-Knack - 6 1/2 miles = 10.5 kilometers and that's even further. :)

A weekday drop in is a better idea than a weekend one. If there is an exhausted geezer slumped over the bar:that will be NickNack.

Not me KC, I pride myself in keeping going even when things are tough... Two weeks ago for example I walked to the Thames barrier from Greenwich and a few other places since while having a bad back ... I hoped it would just go away but it didn't instead it got worse... Yesterday I went to an Osteopath limping and he made it worse, but I'll be back fighting soon... I hope! :(

Sounds like you need some special medicine. It's relatively easily available. It comes in bottle marked Famous Grouse.

Bom, bom ,bom,bom, bompdebon bom!... That's only for Christmas KC :))

Nice picture of a nice pub, though I must admit I prefer 'The Yacht' next door. Any images of that pub?

A fine establishment; but very hard to shoot due to the narrow lane it is housed in. I haven't got a lens that would do it. I reckon about a 10 is needed to get in there.

It`s very beautiful photo and place - LIKE! Kind regards, Oleg from Pskov

A splendid pub Oleg.

Looks like a nice place to while away an idle hour or two!

Indeed Neil, but only outside the tourist season which in this part of the world in 364 days a year.
