The Baltic Fleet is right down by the docks - obviously, but less obviously is that it is an island pub. You can walk the outside and not really see an entrance, but if you can see an active bar through the window, there's the entrance.
The pub has a small bar right as you enter where it serves the beers brewed on the premises in the cellar where smugglers tunnels keep the beer cool.
The pub has a DIY feel to it, as though it's about to be decorated and might have been by the time you visit.
The Wapping beers were all good, including the specials (cider available). They also have guests on and it took some time for us to leave...
The pub is grade II listed which is why it is still standing when all around has gone.
Close to Albert Dock, it still has the feel of a locals pub, its walls adorned with the nautical memorabilia you'd expect.
Food is served at lunch times in the pub and is traditional pub food but all done well and at a good price.
The layout of the pub is unusual as it resembles a ship with a bow narrowing at one end. Seating is at tables and chairs on bare wood floors or you can lean at the bar for company.
Metro at James St is closest, but you can slow walk from the city centre on about 10-15 minutes.
There is a real fire for winter when the wind can whip round the pub.
Well worth the effort to go outside the city centre to try.
None as yet.
