The Anchor Tap

We're heading to the lovely Anchor Tap for some post Xmas drinks and board games. 

The atmospheric Anchor Tap has literally stood still in time. Its the place where Dr Samuel Johnson is said to have compiled his English dictionary and the area used to filmed the musical Oliver with its winding streets and nooks and crannies.

Originally a place for brewery employees to sample the fruits of their labour, a Tap Room was traditionally set up near its parent brewery. The Anchor Tap was the first such establishment set up by British brewing legends, John Courage, and was located in close proximity to the former Anchor Brewery and the old Hop Exchange on Borough High Street.

Anchor Tap is a beautiful old pub and we'll have time to soak up the old world atmosphere in the Games Room.

Nearest Station Tower Hill or London Bridge (the pub is close to the Tower Bridge on the south side).

Hope you can join us.

    I really enjoyed my first meetup with this group. To all I had a chat with that night, thanks for a great evening, and thank you Celeste for organising it. Loved the pub too - was it really where Dr Samuel Johnson is said to have compiled his English dictionary? As every time I hear the name I think about Robbie Coltrane depiction of him in the Blackadder episode "Ink and Incapability" - very funny.

    I understand they have a pool table and darts there in the games room i might trot along early to get a few games in - love a game of pool especially doubles - it's much more fun having someone else to blame for losing ;-)
