Another Thursday afternoon pub tick from the 2016 GBG and another Nicholsons pub.

This part of Fleet St is not an area I have spent much time in so this was another new pub for me. Like The White Swan in Covent Garden again there were 8 hand pumps, this time in 2 banks of 4 & with 8 different ales on. At least 3 of these seemed to be guests. I went for a pint of Everards Sly Fox @ 4.0%.

Busy with a few larger groups, the pub is small so getting a seat / table that wasn’t already reserved was a bit of a mission, I ended up in a larger comfy armchair to the right of the bar. It’s a very quaint pub separated into a front lounge area & a smallish rear bar area, out the back is a terrace area overlooking the church.

Plenty of age to the pub coupled with a slopping floor towards the bar.

I liked this pub, stayed for 2 pints and only left when it started getting really busy.

Last review made me smile? When did the smoking ban come in? Maybe you cant smoke outside?

More pubby than the next door Punch Tavern. Four real ales on but the quality of my Hogs Back Tea was poor.

Wouldnt go out of my way to come back and there is plenty of choice in the area.

Non-smoking pub .. don't bother.

You can sit at the front near the strained glass, or at the back where it's darker, or stand because it's too busy. Beer almost always good. Food a bit pricey.

Popped in with the intention of stopping for a quick Guinness but ended up having 3 pints with some excellent company accompanied by an excellent atmosphere! Really nice pub, good beer and good staff in a quirky location.

Would return without a doubt!!
