Although it's some time since I last frequented this pub, I could recommend the interior as being particularly interesting with its high vaulted ceiling and long bar. It's used by legal eagles from the Law Courts and affiliated buildings in the area and does get quite crowded during the evenings.
The killer though is Sam Smith's beer which must be the most watery brew ever concocted outside of Allied Breweries even though the the pumps claim the usual range of ABV.
The big plus is, as with all Sam Smith's pubs, there's no trashy noise coming from speakers, meaning it's great for conversation and it's free from the disreputable pond life that infests the Wetherspoons outlets.

Part hotel lobby, part medieval 'bierkeller', why are so many of London's best pubs wasted on ‘The City’ and the people who work there? A high vaulted ceiling, discreet snugs, leaded came glass-work, Gothic touches... but why so bright? It's Sam Smiths, which means it's both cheap and distinctive in flavour. 8/10

A few years since I was last in here. Tonight the OBB was in good form and the steak in OBB meal was excellent quality and value. Staff were friendly and very helpful. Relaxing atmosphere with many fewer of the loud, verbose, attention-seeking City types who infest many nearby pubs. 10/10.

An essential stop off and unlike most pubs in the City of London, it is open on a Saturday. The drawback is the choice which is limited to Sam Smith's - decent enough and cheap - but supremely uninteresting. The interior is magnificent albieit not as old as it looks and it would have been regarded as a theme pub in its day
