The 2005 CAMRA Good Beer Guide includes seven SE1 pubs among Britain's 4,500 best real ale pubs.
The 32nd edition of the guide, compiled by the Campaign for Real Ale, looks at not only the beer quality but also the food and building.
In Tower Bridge Road both the Bridge House, now Adnams only London pub, and Wetherspoon's Pommelers Rest are included.
The only pub on the Lambeth side of SE1 to get a mention is the King's Arms in Roupell Street.
