Whilst on a pub crawl we stopped in. It’s clearly catering to the upper end of bar attendees. Very ornate and looks old but isn’t actually. It’s a facade to look dated and awesome. The beers on tap are the same as nearly every other...More

You can’t help but be impressed by this Fullers pub - it does have a stunning interior. I haven’t been in quite a while due to my preference for hoppy ales, but the recent acquisition of DarkStar now means that you can normally get HopHead...More

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.

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
