Hi all!

Im staying with my wife and her parents at the Hilton London Bridge for a couple of days in April. Now I wonder, which Pub do you recommend (close to the Hotel).
This is my second time in London and we are staying for three nights.

The George without a doubt if you haven't been. Yes, I know it is expensive and there are a lot of tourists, but it is London's oldest coaching inn and Charles Dickens (in Little Dorrit if you want to impress the in-laws) wrote about, too. I find it never fails to entertain friends and family if they are over.

London Bridge is a great area for pubs.

In the immediate vicinity of your hotel I'd recommend the Market Porter (Stoney Street) and the Barrowboy and Banker (at the end of the bridge); a bit further afield (but still within easy walking distance) is the Royal Oak (Tabard Street) which also does huge portions of good hearty pub food.

If you are a real "beer geek" perhaps try the Rake in Borough Market.

There is loads of info on pubs if you do a search on this forum.

Sorry about "Little Dorrit" being a link, I meant the book, not the pub or cafe here.

I'd agree with these choices, especially the Royal Oak and - for historical reasons - The George.

I'd recommend The Rose on Snowsfields - a lovely cosy little pub slightly off the beaten track.

The Anchor just to be able to sit outside and watch the world and the river go by.

Or the Lord Clyde for a traditional boozer

If you do go to The George, show them dickens' insurance policy framed on the wall at the end of the bar.
