Agreed with all the other positive reviews here. From the outside it looks charming, but that doesn't prepare you for the breathtaking, village church-like interior (which I understand dates to the 1920s or thereabouts; this is not actual 400-year-old decor). The photos you see on this pub's Yelp page do it justice. It's exactly what it looks like inside: charming, rustic, cavernous yet cozy....more

This is a beautiful vintage bar that oozes history. It's definitely a place to go at least once whilst your in London.
