Situated at Wapping on the banks of the River Thames it is supposed to be the oldest riverside tavern and dates from around 1520.
Formally the haunt of sailors, smugglers, cut-throats and footpads it surely could tell many tales if it could only speak.
In the 17thC it became the favorite drinking place of Judge Jefferys, the 'Hanging Judge' and was also frequented by Charles Dickens and Samuel Pepys.

Pencil and some coloured pencil on Hot Pressed paper.
