Nice enough mid row City boozer with a few ales on. The Lacon Charter was best pint of the day - though it was £5.20 for a pint of 3.5% mild.

Shepherd Neame pub a short walk down from Farringdon Station and not too far from Fleet Street either. The front bar is small. Although mirrors make it look larger than it actually is. Getting access to the bar can be difficult when busy. Bu service was surprisingly efficient. There are tables further back and a garden beyond. In addition, there is an upstairs bar too. Ales were Shepherd Neame Spitfire & Whitstable Bay Pale Ale. The guest was Black Sheep Best Bitter. CAMRA card holders get 50p off on pints or bottles only. Menus were on tables. But I didn't see anybody eating. Fairly standard city boozer.

Ok Pub - GBG entry 2017. Full range of Shepherds Neame beers. I went for a well kept but not overly inspiring Whitstable Bay.

Nothing really to make the place stand out or make you want to go out of your way to return really.

Although there was plenty of free reading material, including London Drinker magazine.

A decent, unpretentious pub on the edge of the City. Shepherd Neame has not been one of my favourite beers but the Whitstable Bay is nice and light. Also this pub had a good guest beer from Holt's when I was there recently.
