Fodor's Review

Named after a ship, this is one of London's oldest riverside pubs, dating from around 1520. Once upon a time it was called the Devil's Tavern because of the lowlives—thieves and smugglers—who congregated here. Ornamented with pewter ware and nautical objects, this much-loved "boozer" has a terrace with views of the Thames, from where boat trips often point it out.
