A great location of pubs but could do with some investment. L9ads of tables but not enough chairs. Toilets adequate but could do with a minor overall.

£13 for two drinks!!!!!!! I didn't use the facilities but my cousin tried to and couldn't as the queue was too big on a Sunday afternoon. Maybe they need more facilities but still £13 for two drinks!!!

Went for a few drinks and to watch street performers from the balcony. Drinks were all served in plastic cups, even expensive Gin & Tonics. Prices are not cheap here either.

The balcony of this pub overlooks St Paul's church and is the perfect spot for a glass or two while watching the street performers below. (Bit of trivia - it was outside St Paul's where Professor Higgins met Eliza Doolittle selling flowers.) The only downside...More

Famous pub that I used to frequent as a teenager many years ago. Whilst in London I took my teenage boy for a pint. It hasn’t changed and the atmosphere is good, however I do think that £6.55 is unbelievably expensive for a pint.

Visited this pub with work colleagues for a birthday drink. It was a ok experience, nice view from the balcony area. We were exposed to the elements as the heater did not function. Drinks were quite expensive (£24 for four drinks) but that’s central London.
