This is a drinking hole that’s been a key feature of the drinking scene in the area since the days of Jack the Ripper. It’s undergone a few changes since then but in essence it’s probably the same – in that it serves a good pint.
Its latest reconfiguration sees the bar move back to the centre of the room – reducing the space for customers to sit in but increasing the bar area available to order from … meaning the once hefty queues have thankfully been greatly reduced (but aren’t non-existent). The extensive and most impressive wall tiles do however date back to the mid 18th century. An impressive selection of beers is on offer – both bottled and on tap – and at a price that won’t leave you feeling out of pocket.
