The Globe, Baker Street

I have to say this is one of the worst pubs I've been into. Firstly, it had that awful stale beer smell which I'm sure regular cleaning would get rid of. Secondly, I expected it to be busy of course because of it's location but we were there to watch a game of rugby and no less than 3 fights were broken up by staff in the space of the game at least one looked pretty serious. Been to loads of rugby games and more than my share of pubs and never seen anything like it. One guy was trashed (he seemed to be "minesweeping" which I thought died out years ago) and making a nuisance of himself which to be fair the staff dealt with as best they could but I coudln't shake the dodgy feeling in this place.
Drunk, loud and singing I can totally accept (I may have even been guilty of this myself in the past)... wasted, obnoxious and screaming like a fool I can't. Maybe I picked a bad night but I wouldn't go back. The staff dealt with the situations well but there seemed to be a degree of familiarity with that type of situation which makes me think it always happens here.

The Mayflower, Rotherhithe

Can't understand why anyone would not like this pub. Overpriced food might be fair comment although in fairness I've been tempted a few times as the food always looks amazing. But I have to say that for service this place is great. We go here infrequently but we're always met with a smile from our very first time right up until last week.
The pub itself is small and quirky (which personally I like). There is an open fire at the back and a beer garden outside. It's close to the temporarily closed Rotherhithe station and is either the starting point or final call on the Rotherhithe Rd pub crawl which we participate in whenever out-of-town friends visit for some drinks. Overall this is a nice quiet place for a few drinks which has plenty of character.

The Kings Arms, London Bridge

A brilliant bar. Me and a few friends were walking past a few weeks back looking for another pint and spotted that the King's Arms had a quiz on (Monday night). We went in and were so glad we did. Been every monday since. We got lucky the first week and found a table but you have to book in advance for this usually. The subsequent mondays have alwasy been packed and the quiz is genuinely good and entertaining (Quizmaster Steve is entertaining and a great character) and the food here is fantastic. I really can't say enough about this pub. So friendly and a great atmosphere is backed up by a real cosy feel. There are even boardgames to play here if your not quizzing or watching sport. If I was looking for a bad point it would possibly be the loos but they are certainly not the worst I've seen. One of my favourite new finds since moving to this side of town.
