I've been in there for a pint when the tunnel was shut , just by the railway bridge?

yep, it's one block over from my house

Is the railway tavern near? I think they did that up a few years ago, been a while since I've been a white van man now

Just over the road, but it's called 'The Craft Beer Company' now and as such is shit and full of pricks
Shame, I used to skulk in there whilst my kid was at drama club.

If you ever fancy a walk through the rotherhide tunnel, a feet of engineering in its self, the mayflower is the oldest pub on thames allegedly, and you can see some of Edward 3 manors ruins , ain't much there, then maybe a pint in the angel

excellent, I shall definitely do this

I've always heard that the tunnel is all bendy and not straight so that horses could not see the light at the end and bolt for it, makes sense before cars and electric lights, might be bollox tho

Patrick Stewart owns that one, no doubt.

DIVE, MY HAWKMEN,

You probably are making this one up, though.

Reminiscent of Basildon town centre circa 1991.
What a violent, windblasted shithole that was.

Your nan's shithole has been violently windbashed.
