Every Thursday and Friday, half of Southwark’s office workers empty into the White Hart to pre-drink before eventually ending up doing Christ know what in the loos at the Builder’s Arms in Hackney. Unlike most of the places we feature, it’s completely hook-free – they even have irony-free Foster’s on tap for f*ck’s sake. Don’t come here for dripping on toast or craft ale or whatever pubs have on their menus these days (no, seriously, the Anchor & Hope’s 5 minutes away). Just come here to have a few very cold beers, enjoy some bants, and soak up the weekend vibes.
