Davy's may well have been established in 1870, but the current manifestations of Davy's outlets do no more than précis Identikit Britain. You well could be in a Davy's, All Bar One or Pitcher & Piano etc and not know the difference (apart from a smattering of sawdust in the case of a Davy's), such is the predictability of the genre nowadays. Perhaps the only reason you would choose one over the other is geographical, but they're all located here anyway - so how to decide? For sure, Davy's has it's Wallop, Lager and Bitter, but the quaint renaming of produce does not constitute a memorable drinking experience. Davy's is, indeed, a purveyor of fine wines and spirits and the service is universally good. But when it comes to pub-going experiences, it's somewhat synthetic, a bit too olde worlde for it's own good and especially ironic when it's in a location like Canary Wharf. In summer when you get the sun on the north side of Canary Wharf, the waterside tables are worthwhile, but for the rest of the time you'll probably be here because someone else decreed it.
