Typical British pub, they offer lovely fish & chips, full tasting sirloin and well done hot dog for child. Fresh beer from the region, familiar ambience and TV to watch (in this case) Formula 1. Great client care from the girls, reasonable price for a place visited by locals, who care about quality!!!

Huge place and a long way to the lavatories! Grumpy staff, nice cocktails. Didn't try the food. Ok to call in for a quick drink.

This place is everything you could ask for in a restaurant. Affordable, fast service, delicious vegetarian food (do not miss the halloumi burger with aubergine fritters!), clean bathrooms, great music, close to tourist attractions, and it even features interesting stained glass art. The staff are really what makes the place amazing though, and I highly recommend this London gem!

Always get a warm welcome from the handsome fellas behind the bar here ! They should brush up their pool playing skills though...!

The fish and chips were very good,but beware the so-called discretionary service charge !If you order your drinks and food together you will be charged for service on everything,adding 55p to a pint,even though you carry it to your table yourself!After protesting this was eventually refunded,but this really should not happen.

Met up with a friend who was over on business from Italy last night. He and my wife were very happy with their Sunday dinner (which looked excellent), while I went for the fish pie, which for once, came with plenty of fish, a really tasty sauce as well. Service and music was great, (not the usual over-loud bilge which... More

We arrived at Bridge House looking for a place to eat after a long day walking around Tower of London with my partner and a visiting friend. We had originally gone to another place nearby that was unfortunately not serving food at that time, and a guy there recommended this place to us. Upon sitting down we were greeted by... More

After a few hours of walking around Tower of London, then over the Tower Bridge, this was the first pub available. We were tired, hungry and cold. So we were pleased to find a place that was indoors, served food and didn't have to wait for a table. It was 4pm on a weekday. The fish and chips was a... More
