What a great place. The history, the nostalgia, the Parrot...? Check it out. Food was good (Pub food) . Service was fantastic! This is one of the oldest if not the oldest pub in London. 1667 re-built.

My family loved this place. Take the steps downstairs to feel like you are traveling back in time. Super authentic feel. Have a pint!

I visited this truly lovely, quirky pub some years ago - so was pleased to see it thriving on my recent visit. Had to stop, certainly wasn't disappointed. Its unique and I recommend a visit if in the area, you wont be disappointed.

From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to
its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile
in the world, the financial district known simply as
“The City” is one of London's most historic and
fascinating neighborhoods. Here high rise office
towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with
Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually
every era in between, including Christopher Wren's
