Jamaica Wine House

About

Tucked away in St Michael's Alley, part of a labyrinth of charming medieval courts and alleys off Cornhill and Lombard Street in the City, the Jamaica Wine House was originally London's first coffee house which opened in 1652 and was visited by Samuel Pepys.

Known affectionately as "the Jampot", the pub is open from Monday to Friday and is the perfect spot to soak up the atmosphere and history of the Square Mile.

As well as City workers and tourists, who love to gather in the alley outside on warm evenings after work, the pub is also a haunt of bell-ringers and walking tours.

The Jamaica Wine House serves a wide selection of traditional Kentish cask ales, as well as international lagers and a good choice of wines.

In the basement, you'll find Todd's Wine Bar, which dates back to 1869 and retains its Victorian character with its wood-pannelled bar and high ceilings. The pub even has the original 19th century cooker used to roast coffee beans.

The venue is one of many historical pubs in the City.
