The atmosphere is awesome! We had a really great time in this very old building. We appreciate the interior and also the friendly staff.

We were a bit disappointed of our visit. Not much variety on the menu, food was expensive and not that great

Friendly atmosphere and great food. Just what a London pub should be! Ate here after St Paul’s tour. Hit the spot.

Great place that's a bit quieter and off the tourist trail. Stopped off to watch England in the World Cup. Lovely little courtyard out pack. Great Ales as you'd expect from Fillers. The pie was good as was the ambience. Done up in the London...More

We had lunch there today and it was a bad experience. We waited ages for our food order and had to remind the barman about it. When it came, my roast beef sandwich had so much horseradish on it that it was too hot to...More

Inner London’s busiest streets crisscross quiet
cobbled lanes for an effect that can be urbane or
quaint – or an intriguing blend of both – depending on
the particular corner you turn. Due to its especially
convenient location, bustling Holborn hosts an
excellent range of hotels, eateries, and shops to suit
practically any taste or budget. With major
attractions like the British Museum and Somerset House
