Located in between Blackfriars and Southwark is Thirsty Bear, a cool pub with screens on each table so you can order your own food / drinks – so much better than queuing. There are also beer / cider taps at each table so you can pour your own beer!
Food is typical pub grub but I liked the fact you could build your own burger with numerous toppings, salad and dressing – I went for a 8oz burger with halloumi with sweet potato fries (around £13). They also have a selection of bar snacks including flatbread and hummus, nachos and chorizo.
Good atmosphere and they also show live sporting events. Recommend booking a table in advance as it gets busy.
