The Founders Arms is a modern Young's pub on the south side of the river very close to Blackfriars bridge, offering the usual Young's range of drinks and pretty decent food. It has a large terrace with seats and tables by the river, there are no major roads nearby and there's a nice view of the dome of St. Paul's (rising above the squalid mass of buildings on the north bank, that is the Mermaid Theatre complex), so it's a quiet, relaxing spot for a little R&R. The Blackfriars station rebuild, currently in progress, has reduced the clientele somewhat as there's no longer a direct cut-though from Waterloo, which means it's often quieter than most other pubs in these parts. If you're looking for a handy place to meet, or need to rest your feet and feed the body (after a feeding one's mind at the Tate), you'll find the Founders Arms should fit the bill nicely.

overpriced. i asked for diet cokes and was given 2 large ones and charged £11.85 for those and a bottle of bulmers. i hate being taken advantage of and didn't realize what had happened until too late.

I really enjoy this pub, highly recommended, the view is great and relaxing, the addition of the coffee bar is good idea. I will be back soon!
