My partner and I visited the 'Olde Cheshire Cheese' yesterday. We have been going here for 3 years on and off. We have normally had a good experience here, but this was a real let down and has compelled me to write this review. We managed to eventually find a table, and had to clear it ourselves, as well as... More

This wonderful old pub and light food restaurant is a must if you have a few days in London (especially if you have explored all the usual haunts). It is claimed to be one of the oldest operating drink outlets in London. It is located down a small alley just off Fleet St, the heart of the journalist world. The... More

You don’t eat very well in this pub, but no one here is to eat as for the historical charm that comes from sitting on the same benches where they sat hundreds of years ago, the protagonists of the history of London. Polite the staff of the pub and affordable prices

I hosted an event at the Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese and it was great. Service was prompt, food was decent bar food, but service was great. When it's busy, you can' feel bad about pushing your way to the front of the bar, don't stand in a cue because it doesn't exist. There are many different floors with different bars... More

During the last year I have been visiting here periodically on my day trips to London. I first visited over thirty years ago, and if my memory serves me correctly, little has changed, but I do recall the ladies toilets weren't quite as serviceable as they are now! The historic character is evident as soon as you enter, in the... More

We had our family visiting and they wanted to check this place out as it was listed in their guidebook. Since we arrived around dinner time, we decided to eat there as well as have a pint. I've lived in London for 3 years now and this was by far the worst meal that I had eaten here. Everyone in... More

We visited Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese for lunch while visiting London in early February. The bar itself is very interesting, essentially the same building has housed a bar for the last three and a half centuries, and they try to keep the place looking as authentic as possible. The cellar has been converted into an eating area that you have... More

This is an amazing pub the likes of which cannot be found in the United States. It has great character and history, and the beer isn't bad either. They serve Sam Smith's on tap. There are several different levels in here. I highly recommend wandering about the place and exploring. If you like historic pubs you will love it here.
