Advertising itself as "England's only floating pub", the Wibbley Wobbley is a pub situated inside a boat moored in Greenland Dock on the east side of the Rotherhithe peninsula.

It's a little cramped inside near the bar, though there's more room further back than you might expect. A floating pontoon attached to the side of the boat provides external seating space, which is quite nice on a sunny day (though note it's rather more wobbly than the boat itself).

Kake and doop visited on a Sunday Bank Holiday afternoon in May 2008. No cask ales, but they did have Old Speckled Hen on tap (£2.80/pint). They also had other standard pub fizz including Strongbow.

They were doing food during our visit, including "roast rib of beef with Yorkshire pudding and all the veggies" (£9.50) and "goats cheese, thyme and red onion tart with proper veggie gravy, asparagus and new potatoes" (£8.50) (photo of that day's menu); not sure whether food is served throughout the week.

Signage on the boat indicates that there's a restaurant upstairs called French Fred's, but the BITE comments linked below suggest that this is no longer actually in existence as a separate concern (and we didn't check).

Getting here: The map link on this page is accurate; note that many online maps have the pointer in the wrong place (the centre of the postcode).
