This is my kind of pub. Good range of beer, friendly and helpful bar staff, and a nice easy going atmosphere. Long may it continue.
Bowman's Swift One and Jack Frost were in fine drinking condition last visit.

Nice trad pub tucked away in a sidestreet. Barman couldn't have been more friendly and welcoming (even offered tasters of the beers); and the delicious hot snacks also served with a smile, from another room. The place was packed, and seats hard to find after a while, but you can see why.

Unpretentious the Artillery is indeed, but sometimes one cries out for such a straightforward, no-frills local pub after all the gastro-pomp and super-bar nonsense one so frequently comes across in urban centres. No, none of that: here you will find simply good beer and good cheer. When I pitched up on a Sunday lunchtime, it was footie on the TV and a series of local chaps perched around the bar taking it all in. In the other bar, conversation ruled and may have contained some women too, although this remains unconfirmed! In any case, despite its somewhat careworn Victorian facade at the end of a long terrace, and that pubs of its kind are so often nowadays lager-fuelled haunts, the Artillery stands out for serving a range of five good cask beers. The Hophead we sampled was perhaps past its best but that was pure misfortune - someone has to tackle the end of each barrel. Suthwyk Old Dick and Bowman's Swift One were noted as loc-ales, and Fuller's London Pride to suit the less-adventurous quaffer.

All that and a friendly feel to the place too. No wonder this pub has been GBG-listed for a while. It is times like these that one really must value the Guide, as without it I would never have discovered a pub like this, and if I had I doubted I'd have given it a chance as it's so tempting to judge a pub by its cover. Do so at your peril. This is worth a crack.

Still friendly, still very much a local, still offers a selection of well kept ales, Sunday Roasts and homemade burgers and more on matchdays.

For what it is, an unpretentious friendly back street local with separate lounge and public bars and a garden, serving excellent range and quality of real ale at decent prices this is a rare 10/10 pub. If you want anything fancy forget it, but if a good pint in a good city pub is what you want as I say, 10/10 100% recommended
