The Gladstone Arms - now that's a boozer!
I'm down the road from the tanner and haven't mentioned it cos it feels like my front room but I must add to everyones appreciation of this gem as its what you want in a pub. The disinterested at The Woolpack could learn alot from their approach to service!

Yes - The Whitesmiths Arms gets my vote too. Much underrated. Always quiet when I go there - so if you fancy good beer and a chat, that's the place. They have a hidden gem in the back too in the form of a beer garden complete with lattice work.
And The Woolpack gets my vote as worst pub in SE1 in terms of service and "don't give a sh1te attitude".
