King’s Arms

Top choice pub in The South Bank

Relaxed and charming, this neighbourhood boozer is found at the corner of Roupell St, a terraced Waterloo backstreet. The large traditional bar area, complete with open fire in winter, serves up a changing selection of ales, bitters and bottled beers. It gets packed with after-work crowds between 6pm and 8pm.

The conservatory at the back serves decent Thai food.
