We got a recommendation to come here from a local cabby. We wanted somewhere different that wasn’t a chain and was not disappointed. We arrived at 3:30 pm and a lot of tables had reservations on them with a time. We were told we could...sit at any table we liked as long as we were off before the reservation time. We stayed for an hour and a half having 3 courses. There was plenty of choice including vegan and vegetarian options. The staff were very friendly and attentive especially our waiter David. I would definitely recommend.More

Great to see this pub open and operating safely. Nice pub in a prime position with very well kept Fullers ales.

After a morning spent exploring The Tower of London we were ready for a proper lunch and this fab restaurant didn't disappoint. I'd been before a few years ago on a work trip and had put it on my "must do" list for this holiday...with the beloved. Jay looked after us brilliantly, the whole place was spotless and well laid out and they sanitize each table after each customer. This place has recently reopened after the pandemic shutdown and deserves support. Food was great and wine was great - if you're in the area don't miss it!More

Went in for a drink on Monday night after listening to Boris Johnson talking about pubs clubs and restaurants shutting for a few weeks we had booked the ceremony of the keys at the Tower of London and it was also my wife’s birthday ....We decided to leave it a bit late in the evening as it would be quieter there was a small group of city lads drinking and a few other couples the young Barman was very polite and I had a couple of pints of Fullers ESP which was fantastic I did fancy some of their pies but they weren’t cooking as it was obviously very quiet a great London pub very close to the Tower of London we will visit again in better times .More

Great small pub with wooden interior. Feels kind a old and classic but very and chic at the same time. Very nice and relaxed atmosphere. Very nice and friendly staff but they should tend to clean the tables more often, as we were placed on...one that was not fully wiped and cleaned. But apart from that, very good bar to socialize and spend a nice afternoon or a evening with your friend enjoying a glass of beer.More

We came across the pub while we where searching around london tower and I am very glad we did. We where greeted by a lovley young man who was very welcoming, he recommended a pale ale for my partner that was lovley, he explained that...it was the first day of their pie and ale week. My partner ordered the venison pie of which went down very well, we especially liked the little gravy pot with the dish. I ordered the haddock and chips which also was very nice, we then had the cheese board for pudding our whole meal was all presented very well, came out promptly and was nice and hot. We also took home a black pudding scotch egg. It was reasonably priced the service was great and friendly we would definitely recommend this place to others. The only thing we could say would need improvement would be a little more vegetables with the pie dish.More

Sitting in a favourite of mine. Unfortunately having had to wait some time for reserved tables to be freed even though those who have reserved have not turned up we have had top quality customer service - not. One of the staff a lady with...glasses and many tattoos shouted at one of our party who tried to move one chair from a free table so we could sit together. Unbelievable attitude for someone in the customer service industry won’t hurry back with such aggression. Does she have delusions of grandeur or what? Don’t mess with her.More

I enjoyed an afternoon drink here with my Partner. It's a small ol' English pub with dark wood interior with an 'oldy-woldy' feel. Lovely barstaff. Very relaxed atmosphere. The only downside would be that 'sticky' feeling on the tables, when wood varnish has had its...day. That said, I would still return there.More

A beautiful pub with excellent service and delicious food. After touring the Tower of London, were were famished and needed a break. This was the perfect, charming place to come. The pies and fish and chips are great.

Yes! This is a bar/restaurant with emphasis on restaurant in terms of service and offerings. I would have no problem taking teenagers there. They might enjoy the history hanging on the walls!
