I have been to my fair share of bars across the U.S., Europe, and Asia, but nothing compares to Cittie of Yorke - my favorite bar in the world. I found CoY when I was living in London in 2005. It became my afternoon watering hole for a pint (or several pints) of Samuel Smith Old Brewery Bitter cask ale. CoY is about as well-priced a place as you'll find in central London - both the beer and...more

Got a wonderful southern style chicken burger that well may...more

From the second I stepped into this pub I got a strange feeling of deja vu and nostalgia. Maybe I was a 20th century English pub-patron in a past life. I'll take it.

I really enjoyed the dim lighting and the large space this unexpected pub provides. This Sam Smith pub is fabulously priced, despite being essentially right in the middle of the Chancery Lane, financial services area. Though...more
