Looking to take a trip to the olde world? Step into Davy’s Mug House and teleport back to the 19th- century for a couple of hours. Situated just under the arches of London Bridge in Southwark, this cosy pub specialises in fine wine and craft beer, as well as fantastic renditions of classic English dishes. With its location on Tooley Street, it’s the perfect place to kick back and relax with a pint after an afternoon spent at Borough Market.
Davy’s Mug House in Southwark is divided into two parts: the restaurant side with table service, and the bar side with self-service. The entire establishment is cosy and intimate, regardless of where you choose to sit. The staff at this Tooley Street pub are particularly friendly and attentive, and just like the staff at all of the Davy’s locations, they are very knowledgeable about food and drink pairings. Decorated with an assortment of wood furnishings, including big vintage wine barrels, the interior really creates the illusion of living in a care-free past, the perfect therapy for the usual stresses of modernity. Even if you’re not a lover of kitschy old-world décor, the food and drink at Davy’s Mug House is enough to turn you into a believer. The wine list is massive, featuring wines from France and Spain to as far away as New Zealand. Beer lovers have plenty of choices, too, with top-notch ales that meld perfectly with classic English menu items like fish and chips with mushy peas and beef short ribs cooked in red wine and port. There’s even a dessert menu at this Southwark hotspot, including favourites like chocolate fudge cake with blackberries and sticky toffee pudding. It’s no secret that Davy’s Mug House is something special, therefore it’s advised to book your table in advance with Quandoo!
As always a good night out with good friends and good food. Wonderful old pub with character, great staff and good wine. Thoroughly recommend The Mug House
The food was very good, atmosphere was lovely too the whole place looks great. The only thing we didn't enjoy as much was the miserable service. The guys who served us just tried to sell us more wine, did not seem friendly at all. Quite a shame, we would imagine a different attitude w place like this.
Love the period appearance and cosy, candle-lit atmosphere. Food and drink superb. Service excellent. It's become a regular haunt, preceded by a pint in Borough Market, for a group of ex-Fleet Street journalists.
