|Description: The main bar of this famous old Wapping tavern has a flagstone floor, while the long bar counter has barrels built into it and an unusual pewter top. Timber beams and matchboarding decorate the bar and add to the atmosphere. The upright pillars visible in this photograph are sections of a ship's mast. There is also a small balcony where customers can sit above the river and enjoy the splendid views.|
