Must visit pub for those with an interest in pub architecture and history.

Pay attention when looking for it - its hidden down a little alley off either Charterhourse Street or Hatton Gardens.

Once inside you have a two roomed (three if you include Ye Closet), restaurant upstairs. All wood paneled and furniture not out of place from a medieval banquet.

You are in a different world, at a different time.

Fullers house but ESB not on draft and amazingly, the London Pride had gone.

Worth a revisit.

Excellent little pub behind Hatton Garden. Impressive range of real ales, and ,PROPER pub food;- toasted sandwiches, pork pies, scotch eggs, no sign of pulled pork sun dried tomatoes or olives. Can get very crowded but the atmosphere always remains civilised.

Went here for a beer one friday evening, one of the oldest pubs in London I was told. Had a good drink, maybe 7-8 pints? Yeah, thats what I sayed.

Got taking to a group of girls, one giving me the glad eye all night. Gets talking to her, one thing leads to another and I’ve only banged her in the gents! Proper opened up the boneyard on her.

What a racket! Nice pint of Broadside.

Why didn't anyone tell me about this before? An absolute gem of a proper pub. No juke box, fruit machines or telly (at least, not in the small bar) just 4 decent beers (Pride, Oliver's Island, Broadside and Darkstar Hophead) and a hand pulled cider. Propr oak paneling, scuffed benches, ceiling beams and hanging tankards.
It's not trying to be a restaurant (not that I don't appreciate a decent gastropub)so the food is Basic Pub Snack, including the semi-legendary gala pie. The most exotic meal on offer is a Lamb and mint pasty.

And the gents is outside, where a proper pub gents ought to be.

Showing my age here, but seriously, I want to hug this pub and wrap in in polythene for posterity.

Made sure I visited when in London last month as it supports Mild in May.Not disappointed.Three milds on when I visited from Batemans,Enville and Hoskins.Tried the Enville and Hoskins offerings,both most acceptable.Pretty unique for a London pub to have outside gents.
