Walking on the southern bank of the Thames, in the stretch between Southwark Cathedral and The Globe, you will notice this stone room with characteristic bright red doors and windows, which in the summer months are adorned with colorful flowers. The pub, in addition to having a delightful location, particularly appreciable on a beautiful sunny day, also has a strong historical significance for the city. It is in fact here that Samuel Pepys (seventeenth century politician and writer, best known for his Diary) took refuge during the Great Fire; and precisely from this point, he was able to observe the devastation caused by one of the most dramatic events in the history of the city. It is said that the pub was a favorite place for pirates and smugglers. In fact, during renovation works, which took place at the beginning of the 19th century, the removal of a solid wood beam revealed ingenious hiding places, presumably used to hide loot and contraband goods...! The restaurant inside has the classic English style: stone walls, dark wooden floors, a labyrinth of rooms, low lights, wooden tables and padded benches. From the windows and terrace you can enjoy a splendid view of the Thames and the city. A curiosity: in June 2008 t
