    The pork Poe's are excellent, and are served with an equally good piccalilli!

    Cash only, be warned. Lovely selection of beers and a little beer garden. Pork nap was very tasty!

    Best pork sandwich in the world

    Have you had the sausage roll here yet? What, are you serious?

  • Andy B.

    Small pub, with an impressive range. Be warned though, the my don't have any fuzzy cider, if that's what you prefer, and the barmaid can't tell the difference between cider and Perry.

  • Jonny W.

    Nice stripped-down pub, bare in a good way like an early White Stripes album

    Jonny Wright · February 7
  • sim p.

    Doesn't feel like you're in London which sometimes is a good thing. Good beer and unpretentious

    Try the eggs. Interesting.

    Epic, yet tiny, ale and cider house. This is one of my top five pubs in the universe.

  • Ed L.

    It'll rekindle your love of cider. Vegetarian Scotch eggs are great for lining your stomach.

    I couldn't recommend this place enough. Great beers and pub food, friendly favourite pub in London, hands down. Pub quiz on mon nights and live piano on tue,wed and sun. Cash only Read more

    Real ale and cloudy cider.

    With a constantly changing selection of roughly ten beers, each one gone once the firkin runs dry, every visit is a singular, unassuming education in quality drinking.

    Carl Clancy · September 18, 2014
  • Aprelenko S.

    This was my first pub in UK and it was just perfect. Great prices, stuff, menu and bar. 100% recommend!!

    Pork bap. Pork bap. Pork bap. Pork bap. That's all you need to know.

  • Barnabee

    A strong and ever changing selection of British beers, pork baps and live piano make this pub great!

    Barnabee · March 3, 2014
  • Adrian H.

    Great selection of beers and a nice local crowd. However, gets very crowded in the evenings so don't expect to have anywhere to sit unless you're willing to wait. There's room outside though!

    Adrian Hon · February 25, 2014
  • Sam M.

    My favourite pub in London, feels like it's been transplanted from somewhere in Yorkshire. Wood, meat, real fire, cheap. Cash only, super friendly staff, great beers and cider, proper bar snacks.

  • Paul W.

    Top pub...was quiet when we went in (1230 on a Monday between Xmas and NYE). Great beer selection, real fire, great atmosphere. Could do a beer festival in one stop here!

    Liking the vibe in here. Could take a while to get through the beers though ;)

  • S. J.

    Great atmosphere: old photos and vinyl on play. Only local ales and cider; don't expect lager. There is wine. Cheese and pork baps are amazing and cheap. Simply a treasure. Major thumbs up! Cash only!

    S. J. · August 31, 2013
  • BarChick

    The taps are always changing and they also work with a lot of London microbreweries, so the beer is amazing

  • Danni M.

    Love the food for a Sunday pub lunch - book in advance though

    As they say, they "are the only dedicated ale & cider house in London to sell only beers & ciders from small independent UK brewers."

    Derrick Chen · June 2, 2013
  • Alice H.

    Get yourself a roast pork bap. Mindblowingly good. Great selection of ales and ciders although it's cash only!

    Alice Hayward · May 5, 2013
  • Rob C.

    Awesome beer selection. Contrary to popular rumour the beers are not exclusively local. They get the best on offer from Cornwall to Aberdeen via Huddersfield..

    Rob Cowie · February 14, 2013
  • Hanumana

    Separate bar & restaurant area were you can enjoy fine wine and good food or simply relax with friend over a beer.

    Hanumana · October 25, 2012

    Eat the roast pork bap. Amazingly tasty

    When beer writers imagine heaven, it looks exactly like the Southampton Arms. (via nytimes)

  • Callum S.

    Brilliant real ale/hipster pub. The pork pies are great!

    Callum Stott · June 9, 2012
  • Dolce&Gabbana

    For those that stumble across it, they’ll quickly realise that this place likes to keep things simple, for outside an old painted sign that reads ‘Ale, Cider, Meat’… pretty straight forward, no?

    Dolce&Gabbana · February 15, 2012
  • Tonic Music

    Easily one of the best pubs in London; countless ales, ciders and the best mustard I've ever tasted.

    Tonic Music · January 12, 2012

    The Rum Porter is delicious but it's going fast!

    Richard Hopkirk · January 6, 2012

    Cash only folks!!

    Sharon Martin · December 31, 2011
  • Sharon M.

    Fireplace AND real ale!

    Sharon Martin · November 23, 2011
  • BarChick

    Remember to take cash, this is a no card pub. It's perfect if you're skint, and ideal for getting a date trashed, as those ciders are not for the faint hearted Read more

    Named CAMRA’s ‘London Pub of the Year’.

    Serious Pig Salami ... Seriously Good! Ask at the bar.
