Wow, what an amazing place. It's on bizz.feed's top 25 pubs to visit so off we went an we weren't disappointed. Think of bygone times and how we used to live, it's here. Look up, look down, look around but most of all enjoy your pint :)

Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese is a famous pub and its virtues are certainly commendable. It is literally like walking into the past. The many rooms and floors make a fascinating exploration and it is one of those pubs you have to visit. Once. The trouble is, while it succeeds as a monument, it fails as a pub. Brewery shackles leave... More

An authentic old old old traditional English Pub - well worth the visit. A good pub crawl is essential for any London visit.

Worth the trip to Fleet Street, Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese takes you back centuries ("Rebuilt 1667") to a time when journalists, bankers, and businessmen would gather at the publick house for a pint, perhaps a bite, and conversation. The selection of beers and ales was excellent, and the menu was quite varied. We had the mac and cheese and the... More

We had eaten here many years ago and wanted to try it again. It's located on the left side of Fleet Street, as you walk from the Strand, in a small side alley called the Wine Court. The place is used to tourists just popping in for a look since we were asked if we just wanted to look around... More

Good local beer in an old English pub. I wanted to try some beer from England and wasn't disappointed. The atmosphere at the place was relaxed and didn't feel too touristy. If I lived nearby i'd become a regular.

If you want to feel like you are back in time to say the 16th century, this is a place to eat. Small, quaint, a little dated, bench pew seats, and good traditional british food. We had the Ribeye, which was actually prime rib, the chicken, the lamb, and the stroganoff. Other than the stroganoff needing a little more flavor,... More

When we walked in it was like that opening scene in an American werewolf in London. You know where the unfriendly inbred locals stare at you. The place is dark. It smells and going down the cramped several flights of stairs, I thought I was going to break my neck. Just get a photo outside and then move on. If... More

This is a unique little pub down cobblestone alleyway off the Strand. It was rebuilt after the fire in 1667 and been operating ever since. The stone step is well worn. Great place to grab a pint and have some food.
