Locals' pub in Bermondsey, near Bermondsey Station.

Inside, it's divided into two halves, one with a pool table. There's also some seating out the front, picnic table style.

Kake visited on a weekday afternoon in March 2010. There were several people in, some of them engaged in conversation with the staff behind the bar. Some kind of blandish pop music was playing, but not too loud to get in the way of conversation. The side I was in has one handpump on the bar, which was advertising Marstons Pedigree. A pint of lemonade and lime was £1.70 — I'd asked for lime and soda, but the staff member who served me warned me that it would be expensive since they only had soda in small bottles, so I took her advice and went for the lemonade and lime instead.

There's also a seafood stall out the front, Butchie's of Bermondsey. As of May 2011, this is open roughly 12:30pm-5pm Fri-Sat and 9am-4pm Sun, and the phone number is 07708 995800. A small pot of cockles was £1.50 in May 2011.
