Modern spacious Fullers pub by the water. The only place I found in the area showing sport. This means it gets packed at the weekend as well as (I presume) being full of the besuited and smug on weekday evenings.
While I don't like the area, the pub looks nice enough inside (even a bit...dare I say it....traditional in appearance!) and they serve good beer (they even had a beer festival recently!).
The Cat and Canary, Canary Wharf is occasionally the place to meet up with friends before catching a movie in Cineworld across the ‘river’. It is usually pretty busy during after work hours. The service is quite slow I must say. But this alone will not be a deterrent for a few pints while waiting for friends to arrive although I wouldn’t fancy eating at this place as you will be waiting forever for them get the food to your table (tried and tested). It is in a good location, easily accessible and there is an outdoor drinking space for smokers.
Had one drink here and that was enough for me, it was’nt that busy when got there at lunch time but yet the staff seemed to work two speeds dead slow and stop, so took a while to get served. Once I did I found it somewhat overpriced and noticed also there were lots of tables that clearly had not be cleared of glasses and wiped down, quite a let down given its location.
My favourite bar (when it’s quiet, but more on later in the review).
The bar is based on the nicer side of West India Quay. Great links to the DLR and fantastic location for the financial services and legal folk based in the Wharf. There is a great range of drinks and the atmosphere during peak times is bustling and not pretentious. It’s spacious and comfy and even in the busy times, most people tend to frequent where the smokers are leaving tables for the groups of non smokers to sit nicely in very good surroundings.
Cons: When it’s busy, the staff do not seem to pick up the pace! AT ALL!!! You can be stuck there for a good 15 minutes when the crowd is only 2 or 3 deep. The price can also be a factor but that’s Canary Wharf for you!
