Two pubs have been added to the list of real ale public houses in SE1 recommended by the Campaign for Real Ale.
The Shipwrights Arms, once a Courage house, is under new management and now a single room with a nautical theme. There are usually three ales on tap. The customers tend to be a mix of the new workers from More London opposite and tourists exploring the attractions.
Pubs in SE1 surviving the inspectors' visits to retain their place in the guide are the Bridge House and the Pommeler's Rest in Tower Bridge Road, the Market Porter in Borough Market, the Duke of York in Borough Road, the Lord Clyde in Clenham Street opposite Mint Street Park, the award-winning Royal Oak in Tabard Street and The King's Arms in Roupell Street.
