Not a massive area inside (not a bad thing) but was very busy when we went. Staff served us quickly though even in the crush. Few decent real ales - think i probably should have had one less of the 4.8% job though as i cant really remember how the hell i got home. Easy walk to the Thames link... More

Popped in here whilst staying in London overnight. It's a typical London pub. Pleasant but not outstanding. The beet was fine and there was a good range on display.

I was looking for pubs worth going to whilst in the area and usually a quick read through Tripadvisor and my decision is made. Came here on a saturday night and it seemed to have a strange atmosphere. The boxing was on and there was a few Americans behind us but apart from that the rest of the pub seemed... More

Upon walking near on a Wednesday night we noticed it was a very popular place to be. Entering inside it could not have been more English Pub. This being our first night in London we were anxious to enjoy a beverage and do a little people watching. This is when we met Paul, whom said this was his favorite pub... More

One of my least favourite city bars The staff allow the serving area to be blocked making it a scrum to the bar Not worth the effort

Love an old man Ale pub that has not moved on with the times. This place may appear a little grotty but it isn't. Thankfully it is a listed building and the pub seems to have been kept in a state reminiscent of the 60s and 70s. Lots of Ales on. A beer club was on for the regulars. Great... More

Stopped in for a quick pint Friday lunchtime. We were served very quickly and found a table to sit at. Ordered a pepperoni pizza which was absolutely delicious. By the time the second pint was needed the bar was 3 deep and absolutely heaving. Took me leas than 3 minutes to get served. They had 4 ladies behind the bar... More

When I started in the City over 30 years ago this pub was used by the City messengers. The days of messengers flying around the City have long gone but the pub has hardly changed from all those years ago. Carpeted floors, an old Christmas decoration hanging from the ceiling, and an atmosphere like going back to 1980 through a... More

don't go there if you are searching for a classy place. typical pub with more spirit that the nearby all bar one or other places in broadgate. perfect place to have some pints after work with some collegues. apparently the selection is pretty good and the price is acceptable. upstair you can also play darts if you fancy

Staying in City of London

Neighbourhood Profile
City of London
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 neighbourhoods. 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 glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
