A hidden gem along the Thames
This classic Tudor-style pub rose from the ashes, thanks to two publicans with a passion for preserving historical buildings. Situated right on the banks of the Thames, this local has witnessed centuries of London history pass by, and will see many more. Built in the 1750’s, the Old Justice has maintained its warm and cosy wooden atmosphere.
After serving its community as a pub for over 200 years, it was nearly converted into flats by an offshore developer. Thankfully, a local community led action group managed to stop the development, due to the developer starting to rip up the interior without proper permission. After being closed for such a long time, the two new landlords Paul and Will restored the Old Justice into the beloved Bermondsey pub it had been for so long. Stop by on a Wednesday for Irish trad nights, or a Monday night for a classic pub quiz.
No more lonely nights at the Old Justice
Paul McCartney fans will be delighted to know that he used to be a regular customer at the Old Justice. Part of his biographical film was shot here, as was his ‘No More Lonely Nights’ music video. Who knows, you could even reenact the music video!
