The Gladstone Arms on Lant Street, just around the corner from Borough station. Its a very friendly local with some true characters. Very mixed -- men and women -- and very small.

Se1 is a big area but I would suggest that you pop-into the "Gladdy" as it's known by many and see what you think. It can be very cliquey at times, but it is usually friendly. Watch out for Camilla aged 88 who has drank there for nearly 40 years! You won't be able to miss her either at the bar sipping whisky or creaming the jackpot off the fruit machine.

It really is worth going there to chat to Carmilla.

She probably won't chat back.

But it's worth going anyway.

Hi Sam, I agree it is worth the trip but Carmilla will chat to most of the guys there....even me! A whisky usually oils the vocal chords I find.

I typed \\\'bars\\\' into scoot, and it gave me the option to choose gay bars .. I was surprised to the extent of the list. However I am aware of the Jubilee Tavern by Waterloo station, and the Fort on Grange Road if you really like to slum it. It is a shame that The Bridge, near London Bridge closed, as the roast and bottle of wine for 2 on Sundays was a real favourite of mine!!

Just saying we had a really good New Years Eve there the other night. Really glad Sean and Paul returned to run it in the autumn after a few months away over the summer - its back to its old self: a well run, friendly local pub, with reasonable prices.

The Bridge? Never heard of it. Is it still open? Where is it?

The Bridge closed down a while ago, it is now called the Czar bar or something like that (St Thomas Street, near junction with Bermondsey Street) but is not gay.
