My second stop on a Thursday evening visit to the City was this Nicholson's establishment near to Aldgate tube station. I'd just come from the Craft Beer Company's nearby branch (not listed on BITE). Not venturing into the City too often, I never failed to be surprised as to just how busy these pubs get. Even with it being only a Thursday, nearly all pubs in the area were packed. Fuller's London Pride is the regular ale here. Guests were Marston's Pedigree, Timothy Taylor Landlord, Sharp's Sunset Red & St Austell Jolly Holly. I was impressed that they had a real cider. This was Devon Mist. It's clearly an old pub and whilst there was no realistic change of me getting a seat, it was quite a nice drinking environment. Not as good as the Craft. But certainly above average.

Great piece of architecture - one of the few surviving wooden framed buildings from the 17th Century that survived the fire of London.

A Nicholson House - so you kind of know what to expect. Had both TT Landlord and Black Sheep on - so it was like choosing between your favourite children.

Been on the wish list for a long time and I will be going back.

Pleasant old pub with well-kept beer. They sell Sharp's Doom Bar. Staff respond to you with sufficient civility, but this is London, after all. Probably late 17 century, timber-framed building with elaborate cellars. The loos were reported here as smelly in 2012; they still are. And perhaps have been for centuries!

nice pub ,excellent beers however..... not too impressed when a regular walks in behind me gets served first then the bar lady proceeds to completely ignore me and natter for several minuteswith this bloke, not as if there was a shortage of staff on a friday evening, two other bar staff were busy serving and some bloke who i assumed was the manager just paced up and down the bar serving nobody.... Hoping for more excellent beer next time and better service...
