I wrote a 5* review a while ago, but wrote that the pie wasn't great. I visited this place with my family and we all had pies. WOW! I will definitely go back! This pub is still great!

Really like the Counting House really well maintained pub with a great history. It's like stepping back in time when you go in. Lovely balcony area too, great for a view down onto the huge bar below.

Built in 1893 as a magnificent banking hall, the aptly named Counting House oozes 19th Century decadence. With gleaming chandeliers and high domed ceiling, it's a stunning place to stop by for a hand-raised pie and a pint of real ale in the heart of London.
