“A real real of a pub- definatley an individualistic place”
Reviewed March 28, 2012

This is a great pub, it has real ales and serves handmade food.

The bar has a lot of charm and an old atmosphere- because it is behind the Royal COurts of Justice there may be a lot of lawyers discussing cases or friends just meeting for a real ale or to sample things like game pie off the small but gastronomic menu board. There are also a lot of wines. And a residnet cat.

A real gem of a pub.

“Pub with character”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

A nice pub behind the Royal Court of Justice with plenty of character, including the hostess and the pub cat. Have a pint, sit back and enjoy. Gets full during lunchtime.

“Visit Foxy Roxy in her pub full of character”
Reviewed February 23, 2012

An interesting little place full of history and character, and superbly run by Ms Beaujolais. I loved the small menu, our lunch was absolutely delicious. We had excellent service and a cat to stroke, just purfect!

“Unique Pub without the fuss ...”
Reviewed January 7, 2012

Stopped in on Thursday after visiting the British Museum with a friend of mine for a quick bite. Short menu but all worth thinking about. The Bratwurst with sautee pots was great. Pint of Adnams was fresh. Staff genial and welcoming. The chef, Roxy, was just sitting down to her lunch (Goose Pie), which was one I had deliberated over, and she offered the two of us a taste. It was great. Could have easily sat there for the day and whiled away the time. Will be back.

“Historic and eccentric - a local secret behind the law courts”
Reviewed May 13, 2011

If you want a decent sized table, efficient staff, loud music and a widescreen TV showing the football, try Weatherspoons round the corner.

Come here because it is gloriously historic and authentic, with the black lacquered windows and old film posters. And it's no tourist pastiche of a London pub either. The pub is opposite the back of the Royal Courts of Justice and filled with barristers still clutching their wigs along with a pint after the courts close. I'm not sure whether the grumpy publican who used to run the place is still in residence, but I very much hope the grumpy cat dressed in an Elizabethan ruff still is.

It's not without its faults (loos are nothing to write home about and the recent extension is not as nice as the original bar), but I love it.

If you go, enjoy it for what it is: a slightly eccentric, little slice of still vibrant, historical drinking London.
