THE PROSPECT OF WHITBY [4]

57 Wapping Wall, London E1W 3SH

Dating back to 1520, the Prospect of Whitby claims to be London’s oldest surviving riverside pub. Now owned by a large pub company and polished up to attract tourists, it’s as much at home on the new Thames of endless, soulless apartments as it was in the days of the docks. But the ghosts of the smugglers, pirates and robbers who used to drink here are not far away.

THE RAKE

14a Winchester Walk, London SE1 9AG

This former market-worker’s cafe may not actually be the smallest pub in London, but it’s certainly the most unlikely. An astonishingly wide range of beers is supplied by Utobeer, which also runs the excellent beer stall in the nearby Borough Market. The space is tiny, the toilets are dreadful, and the best place is to stand is outside by the bins. It absolutely shouldn’t work, but it totally does – this place is a mecca for the capital’s beer writers and bloggers, as well as visiting brewers from further afield.

THE RANELAGH

82 Bounds Green Rd, London N11 2EU

London is lucky to have an ever-increasing number of Victorian-built pubs that, having lost their way, have recently been sympathetically reinvented for a less intense, more leisurely age of pub-going. With 20 beers on tap, a famous Sunday lunch, a pile of board games and a massive beer garden, The Ranelagh is a perfect example of why these old institutions remain relevant today.
