The waitress was really nice and service was excellent. She never got tired of telling patrons that they had very limited seating in the restaurant but there was pub food available in the room at the back, and other rooms, I think. There were separate rooms scattered all over the place. We sat in Cosy Corner, just as you enter... More

A great Samuel Smith's pub on Fleet Street. Good booze, well kept and well priced (except for a few more specialist things, be sure to check the price list. Most draughts, house wines and basic spirit s are very cheap for central London.) The pub itself is about as old school as it gets. A 17th century warren of a... More

We had a wonderful cider and a delicious cottage pie while sitting in the very bottom basement room. It was so hot and humid outside, and down here it was cool and dry and friendly and cozy. The parrot upstairs was very friendly and we had a whistling duet through the window. They had blackcurrant to put in their ciders,... More

My partner had to practically drag me here on our last night in London because I simply was not interested, but I must say I enjoyed the evening. We ate down in the cellar, in an atmospheric and somewhat romantic alcove in a cozy room just off the stairs between another room and the bar. The beer and cider selection... More

We visited on 16 July 2014 for lunch. We found the entrance in an alley called Wine Office Court at the side of the pub. As you enter, look at the step under the metal work. That 350 years of wear! The interior of the pub look to be unchanged since it was rebuilt around 1667. We didn't go upstairs,... More

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.
