Popped in for a nightcap of a Guinness and a Baileys on our last night. Very characterful inn and also had a free glass of water which was available from a tap on the counter.

My favorite pub to visit when I'm in London. Good value for money and a lovely atmosphere! I've eaten here on previous visits and food is tasty and reasonably priced. Definitely worth a visit.

The thing about the Cornwallis is you know exactly what you are going to get. Drink - very good range and usually very good, food is good although range of vegetarian dishes are somewhat limited. Can get very busy on a weekend.
