Description
Attractive olde London town pub with literary and architectural connections, but most importantly still retains some character with exposed beams and a nice intimate feel. While there are concessions here and there along with Nicholson’s usual drab chain signage, some aspect of it retains its genius loci. The drinks options are reasonably good and for London standards food doesn’t cost a bomb. In summer it is common for the after work crowd to spill into the yard creating a fleeting continental atmosphere.
