Most tourists notice it because it faces the gastronomic mayhem of Borough Market, but in fact it’s a lovely old timber-beamed boozer to drink in any time of the week. In fact, more times than most pubs, because its market location earned a special license to open at 6am when vendors are working. Sundays and off-hours are pleasant for sitting by a double-sided fire drinking one of the nine traditional ales it pulls (choices change) or eat upstairs in its library-like carpeted room—ingredients all come from the market. It appeared as the Third Hand Book Emporium in the third Harry Potter film.
