As per the other reviews this is an intimate little pub just off Cannon Street.

3 ales on with the Sharps Cornish Coaster not too bad.

Feels like a locals pub, there’s hops & copper pots hanging from the ceiling, aertex on the walls and a thick old fashioned patterned carpet.

The bar staff are pleasant. All in all a nice simple boozer.

Proper old fashioned boozer just around the back of Cannon Street station. A bit of a local institution and also an acquired taste. In my view a simple proper pub, wooden floors, wooden furniture and top ales. My pint of Sharps Cornish Coaster was excellent.

A city institution which offers speedy service and a choice of real ales as well as some cold lagers. Well worth a visit.

Very old pub, surrounded by modern buildings. It is very close to Cannon Street station, but tucked away on a side street and therefore not as busy as you'd expect. There did appear to be a fairly loyal clientele crowded around the bar. But otherwise, we found seating easily. The pub is small and full of character, as you would expect from a pub that dates from before the Great Fire of London. The gents are so tiny, that it's difficult to fit any more than one person in at a time. But at least, a visit to the toilet doesn't involve stairs. Beers on were Otter Bitter, St Austell Tribute, Courage Best & Harveys Best. Addlestones was the cider. Reasonably impressive and worth discovering (if you haven't already).

I think this is a pub which is like Marmite - you love it or hate it. For me it is geared to winter because it one of those cosy small, cramped and low ceiling types of place. The winner is that it has a real working fireplace. Good cider and Harvey's on tap and you can stand in the gutter outside on a nice day!
