I've recently just moved to Bermondsey, just by St James' Tavern, and I'm celebrating my 30th birthday in three weeks (eeeeeeeeek!!) and I'm looking for venue suggestions for Saturday late afternoon / night drinks. Beer garden / nice pub / bar / not pretentions / not too pricey. There will be around 25 people coming and going throughout the night. Any recommendations? Thank you :)
Friend of mine had hers at Upper Deck Bar, right next to HMS Belfast. Great river views and not too pricey. I was also impressed with the large refurbished beer garden at the Horseshoe Inn - they also have a roof terrace.
