This fascinating old historic pub is definitely worth a visit. The bars interior and wooden fittings are wonderfully time worn and characterful - you can almost imagine Dr Samuel Johnson (whose house is nearby) dropping in for a pint of ale. The street-level bar is atmospherically dark ('No women allowed' it says above the door...) and there is an adjacent... More

I had the best Steak and Ale Pie of our trip and my husband had a good burger with bacon and cheese (not... More

This place oozes with history- tried one of the amazing fruit beers and a wheat beer. It's a place to linger and chat with friends.

Brilliant old pub on Fleet St which serves traditional beers and food whilst you sit being warmed by a real coal fire or down in the vaults below. Great place highly recommend a visit!

We ate there and had the Steak and Ale Pie. It was amazing. I loved it!!! The place is quite old and very historic. Check it out. Very worth the visit.
