Standing tall for over 200 years, this establishment is a London landmark mere metres away from the River Thames. Introducing you to The Blacksmiths; a family-run pub that's been feeding South East London's hungry crowd for centuries gone.

And that's not your only historical treat for the day! History buffs will be elated to hear that Nelsons Dock, a shipbuilding site back in the day, is just around the corner. A place of real cultural and historical significance, visitors and locals simply cannot keep away!

Inside it's everything you could ever want a good ol' British pub to be. Its predominantly wooden interior keeps it rustic and old-school while the cutesy lamps add some serious cosy vibes. Perfect if you're planning a low key meal out or want to snuggle up with that special someone.

And you guessed it! The menu serves up the best pub classics that money can buy. Bring it home with fish and chips, a quintessential steak and ale pie or their slow-cooked lamb shank. There are sumptuous vegetarian options as well as some cheeky curries too to keep you on your toes!

Dined here on Thursday after seeing the newly added restaurant appear on first table.

The pub is tucked away on a lovely street in Rotherhithe.

We decided to get a starter and main and skip dessert. I went for the wings and my partner the soup. We shared and would highly recommend both dishes. The wings are to die for!! The waitress had kindly recommended them and they didn’t disappoint.

Next up we ordered the lamb shank and steak and ale pie with mash. Both were as they should be: loads of meat, rich gravy and creamy mash. Just what we wanted! Probably the best steak pie I’ve had!

Both courses washed down with some red wine. Divine.

We decided to look at the dessert menu after all. Guess what, we went for it....I ordered the chocolate fondant and my partner the apple pie. The chocolate fondant was defo the star of the show. Perfectly oozy in the middle.

We will certainly be back and have recommended it to friends!

This was such a pleasant experience and my partner and I will definitely be going back to try the Sunday roast. The food was rich and flavoursome, with a quirky waiter to add the cherry on the cake.
