Apparently this happens to be London's oldest pub. I'm going to have to trust the internet on this one namely because I plugged 'London's Oldest Pub' into Google and this was one of the pubs that it spat out. I can't remember how old it actually is, but I believe it dates back to around the time of the Great Fire in 1666. Anyway this pub can actually be a little tricky to find, namely because...more

Nothing fancy but definitely a memorable place and a spot would recommend grabbing a couple beers at if you're visiting London.more

It was great to finally get here today on st Patrick's day. Cozy "British" pub with great atmosphere and quirky architecture you would expect in an a old, historic London bar. You have to really look to find it though! Service was good even though it was very crowded. Pricing was as expected.more

I do like Ye Olde Mitre.

The name sounds like one of those fake Ye Olde tourist trap places but this is real.

The pub has been around since 1546 but not sure any of the original building remains. Like many old(e) pubs in the City of London they've often been rebuilt, extended and modified several times over many years.

What I like is that it's surprisingly down to earth and un-gastrofied and...more
