Set on the corner of Greenbank and Scandrett Street this historical Wapping pub re-opens its doors after a brief renovation.

 

Restored it in the 1980s, the original building was once famous for being the local inn where the last quart of ale was served to condemned  pirates on their way from Newgate to the Execution Dock (now home to Wapping station).

During WWII it used to stay open all hours (that's the Gossips) for service personnel awaiting news of their loved ones, run at that time by its eccentric landlady, Mog Murphy.

It remains a landmark for everyone in the community to this day.

 

We are proud to carry the tradition forward, while adding our original touch, drafts and spirits are finally back (fifty years overdue) and follow through our brand new menu. To the classic home made burger and bistro dishes we have added a pinch of european flavour, when Sundays we kept it traditional with Sunday roast and our brunch in the mornings and weekends. 

 

If you are more of a home made cake person, or fancy something different, Come and find out what our daily special are, we are completely sure you will not be disappointed…
