The Wheatsheaf is housed in the vaults of the old Hop Exchange in Southwark, London. TThe Wheatsheaf used to be located around the corner in Stoney Street but closed in 2009 so that the top floor of the building could be removed for the creation of a new railway viaduct. The pub was owned by Youngs and managed by Red Car Pubs. Red Car took over the vaults of the Hop Exchange around the corner and opened the Wheatsheaf but in December 2012, Youngs reopened the original Wheatsheaf in Stoney Street. All very confusing.

The Rake is a tiny bar located on the edge of Borough Market, London. Despite being so small it still manages to pack in a dozen or so draught beers and two huge fridges stocked with a wide variety of British and foreign beers and ciders. If you are wondering why it's so quiet it's because I visited at 10:15am on a Saturday morning! Left Hand Good Juju still tastes great first thing in the morning. The lens I used was a Sigma 4.5mm fisheye on a Canon 40D.
