In a nutshell, cracking. This neighborhood pub in Wapping is possibly the oldest in London. Its origins date back to 1543, when it was a rustic tavern for sailors. Nestled on the old docks of the Thames with the passage of time it became a place where smugglers and thieves met, thus it was dubbed the Devil's Tavern. The current building is eighteenth century (a fire wiped out the original tavern). The Prospect is one of those sites you love, everything about it is a delight, the old bar, walls covered with wood, lamps, maritime décor, small windows, bronze objects and old stairs. But, without doubt, the best is the terrace on the Thames.
