    telbert Do you like sponge?

    Used to drink in here lunchtimes whenever i was working in the area, which was quite often in the late 90's as almost every building in wapping was being turned into luxury flats. Not a bad pub as i remember, you could always get a cold lager and a plate of chips for dinner. Normally had a few old boys in there watching the racing.Remember one summer we were talking to the landlady about how hot it was getting and she told us her teenage sons had spent the summer swimming every day in the Royal Albert Docks.The previous day one of them had dived in and broke his collar bone/ shoulder on a submerged car that had been dumped there.
